    I recently had a pretty spirited conversation on the SHO fcebook group about using the oiled cotton drop in air filter on an otherwise unmodified car. After some independent research, I was satisfied that if your SHO is stock, the paper filters are better. There is no hp gain in changing to the cotton filter, but there is a significant loss in filtration. Once you start modding I think this changes depending on the mods. Thoughts?

    I've got a dry reusable drop-in filter from AEM on my '14. I've been pretty happy with it, because I've kept it relatively stock. It's the wifes daily, after all :D

    Car looks very nice.
    Do yourself a favor, the car sits with the ass is like 1.5 inches taller than the front. Take out the rear coils, and cut half a coil off, not more. It will sit even and be perfect. Zero issues. Same ride, even alignment should still be in spec.

    Wife already complains that it's "too low" LOL. She'd prefer a truck with the same amenities. I plan on getting her a truck in a couple of years, and I'll take the SHO as a daily (parking the Mustang for awhile). When that happens, I'll probably do more to it.
