  1. My Pilot Super Sports do surprisingly well in the rain. I don't have any issues with quarter rash. I too had my mods done at Sean Hyland, and he actually recommended the Pilot SS's when I asked him what would be the best tire upgrade for my car 07 SGT/SC (in 2015). I upgraded my wheels to a staggered 9/10 and got 275 and 295's. Do check the date code on the actual tires you're purchasing, you don't want anything older than a year. Remember to get your rubber warm before you start pushing your baby. My first "giddy up" usually entails just wheel spin to "clean" the tire surface. I don't know your level of experience with powerful cars but; your car has enough power to scare you! Baby steps. I also suggest searching "tires" here on the TS site, and maybe create a new post in the GT 500 section that's more relevant to your request for tire suggestions. I don't think you'll find Pilot SS's in the sizes you want, pretty obsolete now.
  2. 4 SGT's on the 2020 Scottsdale's docket. 3 Black 07's, one with airbrushed paint, and an 08 BJ Convertible. Will be interesting to see what they go for. Any sellers here?
  3. I believe the Pilot SS were the predecessor to the 4S. Bought my Pilot SS (265x295) at 40K and have 80K on them now, and still have some miles left on them. Great traction when warmed up, grips corners confidently.

  6. I had my polished KB 2.6L installed by Shelby in 2015 with the factory tune. Dynoed at 490 @ 9psi. I didn't want to push the 4.6. I'm happy with my choice.
  7. I had my SGT upgraded to a Shelby authorized SGT/SC in 2015 at Sean Hyland Motorsports in Woodstock, Ontario. You might try reaching out to them for any info. They have since stopped being an authorized shop. Or try Xcentricks in Windsor, Ontario. They've been the "Shelby" shop for the past 2 years I believe.

  9. Wayland, this post was originally made 9 years ago. The Shelby shop that did the high-performance upgrades no longer exists. I suggest you do some research to find a local shop that can do a proper engine switch.
  10. The local Mustang club (GHMA) has booked a private show for members at a theater. Looking forward to the movie!
  11. If you're getting rubbing then you need an adjustable panhard bar. Our cars were lowered but not geometrically corrected at the factory. Take a look at the tire to wheel-well gaps on both sides, bet they're different. The differential needs centering and a panhard will fix it. I run 295's on the back, no rubbing, and to the legal edge of the wheel-well (on 10" rims by the way, not 8.5 like yours).
  12. I would recommend simply replacing the stainless screws with aluminum instead of rivets.
  13. I would call Shelby directly for a shopping list. I have the same setup. The boost-a-pump suffices but I would suggest a GT500 dual pumps. You'll need an intercooler, and bigger brakes for safety. Gauges are a nice touch but not required.
  14. Glad it worked out, looks a lot better now.
  15. The pins need to be lowered, they're set too high. Loosen and adjust the two nuts that attach the pins to the radiator frame and lower the pins about a quarter inch. You might have to tweak them a few times up or down to get everything snug. Use your old plates to get the pins right before you put the new plates on,. Your lanyards should be up, not down like you show in your photos.
