Been a long time coming but finally got the setup i want. Billet Pro Shop rear brake kit enables me to run the 15s in back. GT brake kit up front to run 17s. Darkstars with custom gloss black finish. Rear tires are 275/60/15 MT ET Street Pros. Recently got a taller front tire because my headers were dragging on everything. All good now. Probably done modding for awhile or until something breaks. I'll get to the track after the holidays. Enjoy!

Looks amazing man, setup is perfect love the stance. i gotta say i miss seeing that beast around here, never got that ride lol! those speed bumps in palmetto creek and your headers didn't match to well hu. so does it hook now? your going to hurt some feelings with that setup.

Car looks awesome. I actually love the look of the tall sidewall on the front. Im just curious though, if the 13-14 Shelby's come with a 2.3 TVS, why swap it for a TVS? Im sure im missing something, but I'm just curious. Awesome car!

Op, what are your goals? That thing looks like it can rip into low 10's. Maybe with some weight reduction high 9s!

Glad you guys like it. Had a lot of input/help from BMR and VMP. Didn't imagine it would be sitting like it is now when i bought it a year ago.

Yeah buddy! Appreciate all your help!

Job status forced me out of N.O. not long after you and i talked. Bummer. Hope to cross paths with you again sometime! Hooks a million times better than 20s and street tires lol.

I had already worked with VMP prior to the release of the GEN II TVS. I was a bit of a guinea pig for that new blower. SVTP did a nice write up on it back in May/June. Made some great gains with it over the stock TVS and looks killer too! I have no desire to push it much further power-wise or build the motor so the TVS is just right for me.

You are right on point. I'd love to go low 10s all day. Maybe high 9s with some more mods (driver mod ;-)) Also like the occasional highway roll too.

Haha not the first time i've heard that actually! Love the blacked out look.

Looks good.

Maybe see if a 2010 GT500 owner will swap engines with you so you can get the black rocker covers and the black iron block cuz all that aluminum and blue under the hood is clashing with your solid black motif. :-D

That was the plan! Thank you
