And you have a V6 correct? there is only a few mufflers that sound good on them, the GT take off, but there quiet, the MAC like I have, that sounds great, and in the middle for loudness, they do drone in the car but I hear installing the Dynamat helps deaden that droning, and your all ready doing that any way, and there is another one, but I cant think of the brand rite now that sounds good on the 4.0 and its much louder, so it all depends on the sound your looking for.

Thanks for all the tips! It's all good stuff. Really. Please keep 'em coming as I have never had a Mustang before and we don't have many in Australia.

I just placed an order for a Cold Air Induction kit with SCT tuner. Woohoo... my 1st little mod is on the way!

Please excuse my ignorance, but who is Bob Thompson?

I really want to get my suspension & front end looked at ASAP, so where do I go? I'm willing to go anywhere from Baltimore to DC for someone decent.

Thanks

Pete

Pete, Bob is a great guy and is the only person I would ever allow to put his hands on my baby! I'm sure many others here will agree. He lives in Westminster MD, if you go to the thread about pimping the van for the little girl he is the person hosting the event. You should try to come to the event at his house.

Update: I have the JLT CAI and SCT Tuner... all done! Arrived this afternoon, so it went straight on!

Took Black Betty for a spin and the throttle response is soooooo much better. It feels a little punchier right though the rev range.

Amazing what a tune and breath of fresh air can do!
