    Posted here cause this is most of the tech data from my project over the last 3 weeks.
    It's done for now.

    You can read the initial thread of what I started with here

    https://www.svtperformance.com/threads/new-to-me-gt500.1165501/

    Car was tuned this week and drove it back from Atlanta yesterday. I did all my mods at once. Going from stock to 680rwhp is great. I took the same shitty roads to and from Atlanta, before and after the suspension and power upgrades.

    I could no doubt feel where my money was spent in all aspects of the car.
    Traction is a non issue for me and the car pulls great.

    Shout out to Bob Kurgan, Lethal, VMP, BMC Customs, sellers in the classifieds section and the people with good advice on this forum. Ya'll helped burned my bank account to the ground. Thanks!

    My GT500 was very similarly modded. It was an absolute blast on the street. Enjoy it!

    Congrats on the upgrades & results.
    My 11 was modded in stages, while I figured out my end goal.
    The 14 was done like yours, all @ once, since I knew 2 years before the order, what the end goal was..

    I did similar mods and had installed and dyno at NMRA. The ride home was about a hour away and was a blast. Congrats on your mods and Kurgan is one the best in the south. I have several friends that travel fron Nashville to Atlanta just to have Bob tune their mustangs.

    Very nice looking and set up. Exactly where I'd want mine to be. Any reason for the Fore fuel rails? I'm not questioning, but learning.

    Very nice list of mods, and your stripe-delete GT-500 looks over the top. I can only imagine how much fun the first 10 miles were when you picked it up to drive home.

    Aesthetics,

    allowed for the fuel line to be routed behind the blower instead of over the top of the blower. And Fore rails look much better vs factory rails

    EGR was, and had to be deleted as well


    Thanks Bob....ha, 400 miles later since I picked it up and it still feels like the first 10 miles. That's the indicator that this car will be in my garage for a long time to come.


    thanks, they are Alcoas with Toyo R888's out back (barrels are dirty)

    Just wanna say thanks for all the kind words and stuff on this thread.


    Took the car to its first car show outing this weekend. Mustang / Ford based, so judging was abbreviated MCA standards.

    I had a lot of firsts....and I have done a lot of car shows with all my previous cars.......
    people taking selfies with the car, (gfs and wifes)
    and a question by 4 judges and spectators "What did you use to dye your air filter from red to blue?"

    1st Place in the 2005-2014 Specialty car class (SVT, Roush, Saleen etc)
