#2 and #3 look great! Watch the blue contrasts.... Hey, I got a money pit too! Instead of ending with GT, it is a 600 HP C5 "Porsche Killer". : )

Your ride is looking GOOD!!! I like the stop sign addition. Never thought of that look/angle. I always have clear backgrounds. (buildings, trees, landscapes).

When taking such low angle shots, always "look" to see all 4 tires. #1 is spot on. #2, its "almost" there. #3, it is well hidden. I noticed that in most car magazines that all 4 corners are showing at such low angles.

Good eye. Keep up the good work..... Do you use a circular polarizer when taking photos of your car? Its an amazing difference between lights/darks, especially the glare on glass. It makes the world of a difference to see a blaring reflection or to see into the car.

How much boost you running? Or is that just oil, temps, etc?

I would like to have your money pit... LOL

I do have a circular polarizer but was just to lazy to pull it out.

The gauges on the pillar are Boost, Fuel Pressure, & Wideband. Right now there is no boost present. Motor is trash and another is awaiting installment. Still up in the air on throwing a ProCharger D1 on her or single Hellion 62mm Turbo Kit. Only time will tell, however right now my camera collection is growing and modding the car has slowed down quite a bit.

Here is the list of mods:

  • PI Headswapped
  • VT Stage II N/A Cams
  • MAC Longtube Headers
  • VRS O/R X Pipe
  • MAC Catback w/ 3.5" tips
  • Tremec T56 (6 speed)
  • Built Rear end with: 3.73 Gears, Moser 31 spline axles, FRPP 31 spline Trak-Lok, Mosoro 3" wheel studs
  • TCI Line Lock
  • Braided Brake Lines
  • 99up Front Brakes
  • Aluminum Driveshaft
  • Tim Shaw Subframe Connectors
  • UPR Driveshaft Loop
  • UPR Tubular K Member w/ Tubular A Arms
  • UPR Coilover Kit 14" - 175lbs
  • Strange 10 way adjustable shocks & struts
  • MAC Upper & Lower Control Arms
  • Rear Eibach Drag Launch Springs


Car went 8.50 @ 82 mph in the 1/8th on Weld Pro Stars & Mickey Thompson ET Street Radials.
No 1/4 mile times.

Pretty nice shots, & it sounds like a great ride! Fewer reflections in it in #1 would be nice.

No 1/4 mile times.

Piffle! Anyone can run good times in the 1/8th. Get an ET after you install a low rear end. ProChargers cost WAY too much for what you get! Unless you're going to drive it to the supermarket, too, & the 6-speed should allow that, if you must? ;)

I like the stop sign addition.

I can't argue with that. It works.

Nice looking ride bro. If you're looking at a power adder then scrub the procharger idea, you're better of going with a turbo set up.

EDIT: If you don't have a mustang forum to post at you can visit www.dfwstangs.net (external link) or www.stangnet.com (external link). Both are great forums for information. I'm over on dfwstangs.net and there are multiple guys with turbo'ed mustangs. It's a bit of a rough crowd at first but overall they're great guys/gals.

Nice Stang!! I like stangs... LOL!

guesstimate is low 13's in the 1/4.... probably around 13.2 to 13.3..

Everyone knows the friendliest Mustang place on the web is the Mustang Collective (www.mustangcollective.​com (external link)) LOL!
