Well today is a good day, I ordered my intake, carb., and cam kit. Still waiting on my buddy to send my tranny out but I cant push him because of the great price I am getting for it. $5000.0 tranny for bartering. A bulit proof trany for my labor on some work in his house.
Now I just need exhaust goods and a radiator for major items. The rest will be small stuff and easy to get later.

Well, not really. The place that is doing the work would charge me that much. My buddy will get it done for around $3000. But the C4 will be able to handle 800 +hp if I want, and burn the tires off all day long. These guys build great tranny's and actually stand behind them. They also built the C6 I have for sale.

Now I know the rims I'll go with if I ever decide to go 5 lug. Those look sharp and they are also one of my favorite Mustang rims.

PostSubject: wheels   Sat Aug 01, 2009 10:07 am

you chose the right wheels, i put the same on mine, when i put the 2000 mustang brakes and 5 lug rear axles on my fairmont, i neded bigger wheels up front to clear the larger calipers and brakes, so as the 05 mustang was fresh out of the box and the stealership i work at was adding bling to all the mustangs, i bought a set of 6 cylinder wheels like you have, and also a set of the v-8 wheels for 200 bones, the v-8 wheels have too much off set for the rear and will rub on heavy cornering and you lose a lot of steering angle as the frt will also rub. i think the v-6 wheels look better and fit just fine. do you have the goodrich traction T/A tires, they are pretty good tires wear and noise wise. later jb....

Yes, they are the original tires. They fit really well. But the front does rub the inner plastic linner just a touch. This is because QA1 moves the wheels forward a bit for better handling. Think I will be able to heat up the plastic linner and reshape it for the room I need.
