About “RIV”

About “Dark Star”

I bought my Mustang GT 2 years ago from the local Ford dealership with 63,000 miles and bone stock. Since then, I have added 373 gears, Accufab plenum and 70mm throtle body, BBK CAI, full 2 1/2 inch exaust w/ x-pipe and Flows, and aSCT tune. I'd like to add the Trickflow top end kit or a Vortec SC. Lot's of money, but I need the extra HP and Torque!!
Addressing the suspention, I added Eibach springs, Hochkis CC plates and KYB G2 shocks and struts. I have subfame connectors and a strut bar to install. Future mods include Eibach swaybars and control arms. I have 74,000 miles on her now. She's alot of fun to drive, but will be much more exciting when(if) I finish modding her!
