I'm making this thread to share my build with the community.

I got the car on February 2nd 2016. I got a base model as I did not want to pay extra for the car since I was gonna change a good amount of the items that made a PP a PP

second day into owning the car. I screw up and speed and get caught.

First mod was a JLT oil catch can.

Decided that I wanted a tune and decided to get injectors to run e85.

Ordered my Lund Ngauge and was super stoked to install the tune.

First fill up of e85

The car was running great, but it was too quiet for my liking. Decided to buy some headers and catback.

also got a BMR cradle lock out kit, steeda G trak brace and FP strut bar.

Found a local rear seat delete that i picked up.

Taking my headers to get the sensor bungs rewelded in a different location. (shows the rear seat delete better)

I really disliked the wheels that my car came with. I got a steal on some stock PP wheels with tires. drove 100 miles
to pick them up and fit them in the back seat.

Here they are installed.

A couple weeks later, the clutch slave decided to fail at 5k miles and destroy my clutch. Took the car to Ford and they replaced the clutch under warranty.

After getting the car back, I went ahead and ordered the Roush hood vents.

The stock suspension was one of my least favorite things about this car. I went ahead and ordered some KW v3 coilovers.

Ordered my Cobra Jet manifold and throttle body since I wanted to see what this engine could do NA.
IMG_1751_zpsaaposnug.jpg


I also ordered a 5inch intake from Revauto but never received anything and after almost 5 months of back and forth, I decided to cancel the order and order the FP intake
IMG_0517_zpsuuytknrl.jpg


Decided to take the plunge and install the headers at home with stands and a couple jacks.
IMG_1831_zpscuhxwovo.jpg


Couldnt get it done in one day, decided to wait for the next day since I was off early.
IMG_1835_zpsgxkkhwan.jpg


Installed (or uninstalled) my grille delete

The time came to install the Cobra jet manifold, went ahead and ordered some crankcase breathers from JDM Engineering and installed them at the same time.

IMG_0643_zpsaitopvvv.jpg


The stock seats weren't comfortable so I ordered a Sparco Chrono.
IMG_0810_zps6pwalowr.jpg


Since I want to be able to do various forms of driving (canyon, street, strip) I got an Autopower roll bar.
IMG_0845_zpsd40sj5ek.jpg


To improve the handling, I ordered and installed Whiteline sway bars and end links for the front and rear.

IMG_0753_zpsitkxwdvk.jpg

IMG_0750_zps4o7vry7i.jpg


Also to help with cooling, handling,and stopping I got MM Camber/Caster Plates, Stoptech brake lines, UPR motor mounts, Mishimoto Oil cooler and Radiator.
IMG_0715_zpsr9kijpiu.jpg


Wanting the brakes from the PP, i saw a deal on this forum and jumped on it.
IMG_0771_zpsr8331y5q.jpg


The car has been running awesome but I just want more power. Went ahead and contacted Terry @ Beefcake and pulled the trigger on a stage 2 Procharger kit. D1sc w/1050 ID injectors.
Boundary OPG, MMR crank sprocket, and Stage 1 Fore fuel System.

Everything not currently installed (radiator, oil cooler, motor mounts, camber plates, Procharger, opg, crank sprocket, and fuel system )will be installed shortly, just looking for some time off from work to make the jump and install during a weekend. Also going to keep the Cobrajet manifold with the Procharger kit

Very nice! Awesome job with the car, it's come a long way in the short time you've had it. Looks great. Did you do spacers all the way around on the wheels?

Nice except the grille delete. Looks too naked with nothing there IMO. You've been on a spending spree!

Nice work, keep us updated with times/numbers if you put her on the rollers. I'm actually a fan of the grille delete myself, I like the way it opens up the front end.

Sweet build. 460 seems right with the cobrajet. Going to be a blast combining the cobra jet and the procharger. Keep us updated!

I can totally see why you decided to buy a base GT. Smart move with all the mods you now done. Really good looking car. Looking forward to seeing some numbers after the ProCharger is installed, along with your remaining mods.

If you would've kept it NA, I was going to call dibs on it when you go to sell it!
But seriously, that's a nice build, well done!

Thanks for all the comments guys. The car feels totally different now with the mods it has. But I just really want more power. I'll be sure to dyno it soon after, I'm hoping for 700whp+. Maybe then I can keep these pesky honda's off me:)
