  1. I put on Borla Atak because they do not drone and I prefer the way sound over the GTA’s. Also have 4” tips. No other mods... GTA: Borla: KR exhausts are a great option as well. They are a bit louder than the Ataks, but also do not drone. They do have the 3.5” tip. On the KR...but you get the general idea...
  2. Welcome and congrats on the SGT! Looks like a bent hinge inside the door handle. Someone with beer muscles must have though the door was heavy and had to flex their way in once upon a time. If your suffering boredom one evening you can replace it.
  3. Has anyone replaced just the hood pin cables? I don’t have the hood corrosion issue, or need to but the entire kit, but the cables could use replacing. I’m assuming these are Scott Drake but have not called to see if they or Shelby sell separately.
  4. This looks like an Awesome event. Congrats to whoever put it together. I may see if I can do a similar gig in my neck of the woods. Way cool!!
  5. Really Nice! 👍🏻
  6. Wax them. Then California Duster after every few outings. (I have one just for the engine bay and the wheels.) About once a month or so I use a spray detail wax and a microfiber towel to clean them good. The secret is to keep the insides of the wheels clean. It takes a few more minutes, but not only does it look way better, it keeps all that brake dust build up from flying around.
  7. Same here. I was at the last SAAC in PIT, back on ‘08 or ‘09 before I had my ‘70 Boss 302, which I finished restoring in time to take part at the Vintage Grand Prix back in 2013 as part of the concourse. Now going back to meet up with old friends. I’m not sure if I’ll bring any cars, I find that I enjoy time at these events not having to look after them.
  8. Yes, I’m sure it is the oil. 30 years from now MCA guys will be debating what color is correct. I like the blue and I need to refresh mine, the BBK looks great. Thanks for posting the pics!
  9. Thanks shepp. I thought the same thing, but I’m seeing a lot of red filters on the KR’s. Here is a wrapper 2009 with 33 miles: https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/shelby/gt500kr/2248983.html#&gid=1&pid=6 and a 08 with 2,850 miles: https://www.hemmings.com/classifieds/cars-for-sale/shelby/gt500kr/1950712.html#&gid=1&pid=7 I have found at least a dozen others with the same red filter. Seems very unlikely that these did not leave Shelby this way.
  10. Looking at pics on line I see both blue and red air filters on the 08-09 KR’s. Is this a customer change, a random selection during the builds or a date code change moving from one or the other? My ‘08 has red.
  11. Apologies for hijacking this thread, but what came in the owners manual that was unique to the KR? Mine (I’m 3rd owner) had what appeared to be all the Mustang books, plus 2 supplements. Is for the GT500 and another one for the KR. Back to the cooling kit, they pop up on eBay from time to time. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F233186823394
  12. Really strong! They look way better on your 07’ than they do on the late model GT350’s in my opinion.
  13. So after owning a SGT for a couple of years now and just picking up a GT500KR I can tell you for me it was worth the wait to go in that direction. For starters both cars have all the suspension and handling pretty much done. No watts, or adjustable panhard (I still can’t figure that one out). Both have gears swapped out. The power delivery is excellent as is the sound (no drone), the KR just has TONS more of both. The original tires on both are pretty much a joke, even the Eagle F1 supercar tires on the KR, but the Alcoa wheels are awesome. Both are fairy rare, certainly by mustang standards. Both turn heads, but most importantly mine and they put a smile on my face. So which do I like driving better? Completely different cars and each has their points. The SGT just feels a lot lighter, but the power of the KR is special. If I had to narrow it down to 1...the KR. But, for now I’m keeping both. That was my plan and for me to get there it means driving my 10yr old truck back and forth to work and wouldn’t have it any other way. (Helps that I like my truck too). Good luck with your search. All I’ll say to anyone looking to buy a S197 Shelby of any kind, they are all great cars that had a team of people working hard to deliver an experience to stir the emotions. You won’t be sorry.
  14. Ok, I was able to get a image compressed enough to post. Thanks for the congrats! I put on my first mod today...Shelby’s KR billet brake fluid cap. I can only think the reason this was not on originally is due to the extreme corrosive nature of Dot3 and the risk of “aftermarket” cap was too in mass transit and on showroom floors, but that is pure speculation on my end. Next is tires. The originals are still on an petrified they are indeed. I’ll keep for date code reasons, but that’s it.
