Default Good news and bad news

Good news: I got a new car.
Bad news: It'* not a Bonne.
Good news: I still have the Bonne, it'* fully my mother'* now.

I present, 1 of 1048 made in Bright Atlantic Blue Metallic, 1999 Mustang GT 5 speed with straight through Magnapacks. (Basically louder than hell.)



With my other Stang buddies. These are the ONLY bright atlantic blue stangs in Milton.




These rims are being replaced in a couple weeks, I have 18" Shelby Cobra Torq Thrusts on order:










Me on the far right








Here you can see the straight through magnapacks:




Obligatory Bonne shot:



NOW omg what am I doing!!! I've had the car for TWO days:!!!!

(this is NOT an e-test)





WOT:


This is Steeda'* headquarters just around the corner from my house:


And the results, an AMAZING torque curve, even the Steeda guys were impressed, you'll notice the torque dies at the end though, that'* cause my plugs and wires are bad, and it was detonating at top RPM.


I have an order of Macrom components which are going in this week, and I've already rewired the entire car for a new stereo. Gonna be FUN!!!

Absolutely! I'm DEFINITELY going to St. Thomas this summer, and maybe also to Cayuga, but I prefer St. Thomas so I can practice my shifting in a more low key environment.

Wow, thats one NICE torque curve. Definitely not a bad replacement. Same power basically, little lighter, that can only mean good things!

Nice one!

Congrats Brad, nice numbers at the rear wheel. I figure My Bonne is probably 180 rwhp, so I'll have to tip my hat to ya. I always liked the Mustang ever since the first time I drove a Boss 302 back in the ol days. From the solid lifters to the tremendous BANG from the power shift. You'd almost swear the tranny was about to drop.

Ok, I'm calm now. Hopefully we'll meet up some time this summer.
