  1. Love spoiler delete car for the clean look...just got a 19 GT spoiler delete.
  2. Ford always have paint and body issues....just the way it is...
  3. I believe the material is made by a company called Oracle...I will check and get back with you in a few days.
  4. I would stay with the vinyl stripes that is how the cars were originally done. You can still get the stripes from Shelby.
  5. Try BFG Comp Sport 2 A/S...very good tire at a great price.
  6. My experience with underdrive pulleys is with Foxbody cars and they always come with issues such as running hotter and electrical problems. I know lots of folks like them with the 4.6 3V cars but I will steer clear. I also have no issue with the brakes as my Shelby GT has only 3300 miles. When the time comes for new brakes, I will go with better looking rotors but I won't do anything that will prevent me from using the OEM wheels. I have a black 07 with the OEM polished wheels installed since new and it looks awesome. I don't know much about a Watts link, I will read more about it.
  7. I recently had Ford Racing 4.10 gears and a Ford Racing aluminum driveshaft installed in my 2007 Shelby GT with a manual transmission. I used Royal Purple 75/140 oil and also added the Ford Racing friction modifier. I paid a local Speed Shop to do the install and could not be happier. I read a lot of different posts on the 05-10 4.6 3V with 4.10 gears and and read some where people talk about 1st gear being lost and that kind of thing. Truth be told, there is no downside all to a 4.10 gear install in 4.6 3v Mustang. The gear feels perfectly natural in the car. The car pulls harder and the revs are maybe 200-300 higher on the highway. My car is faster-no doubt-but the biggest upside is just improved overall responsiveness. I bought the Ford Racing Master install kit as well. My install was performed by a mechanic who has done gears swaps several times. He guaranteed a whine free install and that is what I got. To correct the speedometer, I bought the SCT tuner and Brenspeed tune from Brenspeed. I used another tuner I have for my F150 to pull the engine strategy code for them. I emailed them the info they needed and about 7 days later my tuner with custom tune already downloaded showed up. Just using a SCT tuner without a custom tune will not work since it is programmed to work with the factory strategy tune, not the Ford Racing tune SGT's have. The Brenspeed custom tune also results in faster, more responsive car. The most notable improvement in the Brenspeed tune compared to the Ford Racing Pro-Cal tune is down low in the power band. Just want to encourage any owners who are considering 4.10 gears in there SGT to proceed with the install. A faster, more responsive car and car still looks "stock:".
  8. Sounds like you used a broker instead of a real company. Always use a real company like Reliable Transport or Passport. They are more expensive, but it is money well spent for piece of mind.
  9. I believe the gauge pod came on the 07 SGT California Editions.
  10. I have tried to contact the mod shop at Tasca several times and have never been able to get a live human on the phone. I left a message twice with Dennis and have received no call back. Communication is very important to me when a shop has one of my cars. Tasca has been ruled out. I have had the exact opposite experience in dealing with Shelby out in Vegas. I have talked to Matt a few times and he was very friendly and knowledgeable. Shelby gets my money.
  11. I am looking at making my 07 Shelby GT more powerful/fun to drive. So far I have added 4.10 gears which are great and Pypes Muffler deletes. I also have a FRPP Aluminum Driveshaft. I am considering Kooks ceramic coated LT headers for my next mod. I am looking for owners here who have installed LT headers of any brand and your personal experience. Could you tell a noticeable difference once installed? Was heat an issue? Any clearance issues? Would you do it again? I will run these with Kooks H pipe and "green" cats. Thanks..
  12. I have an 07 Shelby GT and love the looks. Performance is just ok. Needs probably a 4.10 gear to wake it up. I do like cruising in mine it is just lacking low end grunt. I would take your time in the buying process as that is often very entertaining in itself. It is a buyers market right now for SGT's. Try to grab an original owner car. Good luck.
  13. Thanks I did not know that....I thought they did away with all the mod shops...Do you have the name and number of someone I may contact at Tasca??
  14. I have been back and forth on getting my 07 SGT done...I will be into it for $5g with shipping alone since I am on the East Coast...
