    ^^^Thanks for this link. I see it can be bought for $849.99 on the internet.

    I will at some point pick one of these up before I do my KB 3.6LC and cooling system upgrade installs.

    You're welcome

    I'm curious at how much better it preforms over the current intercooler in the lower manifold.

    I would think that better flow (less resistance) would be a good thing, if nothing else.

    Start with the small things that people change to make the car better and maybe work our way up to a 2103 TVS swap.

    Maybe lower the car and improve handling?

    CAI? Exhaust system?

    Should we improve shifter?

    Let us know what improvements you made that were well worth it and what changes you made that you wish you hadn't - hoping to learn from experience!
    If it were mine, the first things I would look at are:
    Steeda Springs, Adjustable Panhard Bar & Upper Strut Mounts
    Steeda Upper & Lower Control Arms
    Steeda Ultimate Power Pak

    Let me know if I can help you with anything.

    These are nice in that you don't have to unbolt the hood hinges to install. Initial version had an issue with rubbing on the strut towers. I understand that has since been resolved with some new hardware.

    IMPORTANT. If you have not had it done, I would advise you
    Research the clutch/flywheel TSB and if you have not done it,
    Get it done before warranty is out. If its out get it done anyways. Almost ALL made before 10 eventually need it and if left unchecked can damage the syncros in the
    tranny. Read the 4th revision of the TSB for symptoms.
    Just look up Ford Gt500 clutch/flywheel TSB 4th revision.

    Friendly advise to keep you from what can add up to
    COSTLY repairs!

    Just closed a deal on a 2009 GT500, it is a late Dec 2008 build and has the updated clutch assembly. It also came with an extended Warranty to 2014 or 2015. Once I get the car, I will be starting to put a mod plan together.

    Unless they did the TSB and replaced the assembly, it
    DOES NOT have the updated assembely.
    2008 build=old assembly!
    BTW they revised the TSB AGAIN in 2010 and
    are now using 2010 GT500 assemblies because ppl
    were still having problems.
    You need to find out if the TSB was done and WHEN
    it was done.

    I am going on the information from this thread on Team Shelby where Ford update the clutch assemblies on '09 cars after August 2008 which includes my car:

    You SHOULD be ok then IF you in fact do have the new flywheel.

    But if you have problems dont hesitate to use the TSB at the dealer.
    Again I am not sure why they revised it AGAIN to use 2010 clutch and flywheel and just what caused problems on some vehicles even after the 09 switch but there are a good number out there.

    I wouldn't be really concerned but you might double check just to make sure... remember the date is 8-19 so if you are even a day earlier you have the old one.
    I'd even check to see which flywheel was in there physically when you get the oil changed just as that thread states.
    and again don't hesitate to use the TSB if needed.

    I will check it when I get the car but I am very confident since it is a Dec '08 build, 4 months after they started installing the new assemblies!

    Sounds like you should be good.
    I'm always one to double check but again it sounds like you lucked out!

    My car came with a premium Ford ESP warranty until 2015 so I would prefer to keep warranty intact but we will see. I am looking at a FRPP Axle-back system:

    Ford Racing FR500S Mustang Axle-Back Exhaust (05-09 GT) M-5230-S - Free Shipping!

    Is this the one you are using (or anyoine else) and what is your opinion of it? I understand it is loud without cats but sounds great with the stock pipes and cats,

    Those are the KR mufflers and they sound really good especially with an H pipe. Im running them with ARH headers and a high flow H pipe and love the way my car sounds.

    Thanks for the info, are you running cats? Is there really much of an improvement going to an H-pipe over the stock X-pipe if you are running stock manifolds and cats?

    With the stock x they sound good ,they have a nice deep sound but they were just a little too quiet for my taste. After I added the headers and high flow catted H the sound was perfect. As far as going from an X to an H with stock maniflods a lot of guys have gone that route and absolutely love the sound and considering that the KR's came w/ H pipes says something.
