  1. All really good points! I guess the whole idea of trading for a GT/SC is probably the best way to go, its just you get a little attached to your car over time. But it makes the most dollars and cents sense. No plan to build a monster car, it will continue to be a daily driver that supplemts coffee in the morning commute, and makes the evening drives more pleasant. With all that said, if anyone knows of a nice GT/SC for sale, or coming up for sale, please pass it along! Maybe I just get another car and have two in the stable!!
  2. Sitting at 135k now...if I do the supercharge upgrade, I will likely have a local performance shop do a rebuild, making sure all parts are considered for the upgrade plan.
  3. Thanks Steve, I will keep trying. Do you know if they offer engine rebuilds as well? My Shelby has been enjoyed every day, and is up there on the mileage, so I was thinking a fresh rebuild to go along with a supercharger upgrade, would be perfect!
  4. Have left several messages with Shelby in Vegas, but have not had a return call. Anyone know if they are still doing the factory SC upgrade for the 2007 Shelby GTs? Thanks!
  5. Anybody have a picture of a white SGT with matte black or gunmetal Shelby CS1 wheels on it? Getting the itch to change, and wondering how they look actually on the car.
  6. No, I am up in Charleston now...sure wish I was back there though.
  7. Was going through some old pictures and did some minor editing to this photo...thought you might enjoy it!
  8. Saw a black SGT and a grabber orange in one week in Charleston by the new Boeing plant.
  9. It does draw a lot of attention...but so do all of the Shelbys...but it does have a little more menacing look thank stock.
  10. Might have to look into getting a full size for my trunk...the pump with "fix a flat" goop, doesn't exactly make me feel all warm and fuzzy if it came down to a flat tire!
  11. Here is a pic of the hood mine had on it when I got it...I have come to like it, but I would still like to acquire a stock hood if anyone sees one out there for sale!
  12. Given the choice of being sandwiched between Oprah and Rosanne right after an aerobics class, or driving around with those wheels.....the decision would would require a lot of thought! :barf:
  13. Isnt the Detroit Rocker cam made by Comp Cams and just marketed under the Brenspeed name?? If so, seems like it would be a decent cam...I am trying to decide between the two as well.
  14. Yeah that was a good article...and the Shelby had the fastest time of the day on the road coarse out of all the cars! Do your thing SHELBY!
  15. Seems a bit high on HP gains, but who cares, that setup would be a blast! I am trying to decide between the FRPP cams and the Brenspeed Detroit Rockers...I think I like the sound of the Detroit Rockers better, but have not done a performance comparison as of yet. Keep us posted!
  16. Thats interesting Steve, I would had never considered transmission heat as an issue...figured with high quality lube, it would be fine. Thanks for the input!
  17. Not sure who the SAI experts are, but if they want to chime in that would be great!
  18. That is BAD AZZZZZZZ! How did you pull that off??
  19. Just wondering if outting 4:10s on an automatic daily driver would pose any issues? A few people I have asked locally seemed to think that 3:73s should be the max for the automatics but not sure why? So is there a real technical issue or reason not to go with the 4:10s?
  20. Looks alot like two pictures combined in photoshop and lowering the opacity of one so you can see the other...or some variation of that but it is pretty sweet!
  21. So are we supposed to trust those little speed nut clips to hold it on, or do you guys have any other suggestions? Just wondering because I just got my replacement in and was not getting a warm fuzzy about the way they were held on.
  22. Definately update us on the tune install...I am adding a tuner to my last minute Christmas list...and the general opinion is either Brenspeed or Bamachips for the tunes, is one better than the other? (need to make a decision on where to buy from) Also, does anyone have 410s installed in an automatic? If so, any issues to report, or just bigger smiles?
