I would hold out on the brake upgrade. Give the aftermarket time to actually make something better.

Glad to see someone is as crazy as me to modifying their cars right when they get them :)

I was debating replacing the pp sway bars with the eibach. Are they actually better? I know the rear bar is the same thickness but the front eibach is 1.6 thicker.

i look foward to seeing your interior upgrade since I am playing with the idea of this though I want to get it from carravagio interiors. What colors are you doing for the inside?

BTW when I go on kartoyz website I don't see interior upgrades as part of their services? Did you contact them directly?

Also could you take a centered picture of the rear and post it? I was thinking of slightly smoking my tail lights since the red lines look a litle weird on an all black car.

Your gonna be hard pressed to find something better than the Shelby/Baer extremes. I actually got to tour their facility yesterday and it was incredible! From how they make their calipers to their rotors, just awesome and VERY impressive! And their stuff is actually made here in the USA! Plus compare theirs to Wilwoods, Baer caliper pistons two seals each and are internal the prevent dust and debris and Wilwoods don't. That also makes it so a dust cover isn't absolutely necessary. As with Wilwood's, they are mainly are racing background brakes and you MUST put a dust cover on. Just subtle differences like that are what makes a big difference. And yes the way their rotors are made, helps keep the brakes cooler than say a stock setup.

Kartoyz offers the service for leather interiors. I have seen the work that the fellow does that he contracts with, and the quality is excellent.
Speak with Toan (pronounced Twan). Let me know if you go ahead with anything and I will will work to get you a discount. I have modded many cars with them, with superior results. 408-251-1496

My rear sway bars are larger than the ones on the gt500. I will get the part number. The car handles more flat in the corners.

What is a front splitter curb alert system?

My interior will be all black, and stitching black to match my recaros.

SVT13, that Caravaggio, that's a Corvette interior isn't it? I don't see where they do anything other Corvettes. Do you have a site that shows off some custom interiors in a Mustang? I would like to do something to mine as well but don't know where to get it.


LAST500 I love how your car looks! Looks mean! Looking forward to seeing the other mods as well.

05mustangman: Yes its for corvettes but John told me he could do a custom job for me. Only thing is price. But I want to see katoyz price too. I was really sold on caravaggio it looked so amazing. But if Kartoyz is similar quality for cheaper then I will do that.

Last500 do you have any pics of their work??

And I could have gotten the sway bar order mixed up. I know if you have the performance pack one sway bar is 25mm the other is 34.6mm. The eibach kit comes with a 25mm and a 36mm.

Did the sway bars add any harshness or noise or anything like that? I don't see how they could but I heard some people talk about that kind of stuff.

The front curb alert is something american muscle sells for like 140 dollars. You mount it to the back of your splitter or back of the inside of the bumper since our shelby grills are open. You can set it to go off from 7 inches to 14 I believe. It beeps when your splitter reaches the within that distance you set it either from straight ahead or below. Its worth every penny. Now I never scrape my splitter. Its 100% ESSENTIAL if your like me and are also going to replace your splitter with the SS carbon fiber one.

But anyways so I should call kartoyz tomorrow then and ask for Toan is what your saying? Hopefully it can match the quality of caravaggio. I mean when John is done with a car the interior looks better than a bentley or ferrari.

Impressive.... 21's on the back, first time I've seen anyone that bold. I did a set of custom Breytons on my 03 Terminator 18's on the front, 19's on the back... was very unique at the time. Loved the look.
