    Wheels & Tires
    I just called Forgestar and ordered right from them.
  2. Continental Tires??

    Wheels & Tires
    I ended up going with the Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Ploe Positions in the stock 19" sizes when I got the new wheels. So far, so good.
  3. KR Mufflers and KR "like" H-pipe

    The sound of the KRs and H-pipe is incredible. The video does not do it justice. Love the way it sounds.

    Pacific Northwest Forum
    I've been fairly lucky getting to be in some fun places the last few years since I am in the Coast Guard. Did a few years in Puerto Rico and a year in the Arabian Gulf. Now I'm looking forward to being close to home for a change. I am headed over there in about a week, but the car won't be...

    Wheels & Tires
    When I got my 19" Forgestars I decided to go with Bridgestone Potenza RE050A Pole Postions in the stock 255/40 and 285/35 sizes. I was able to put about 2000 miles on them while I was back home on leave this summer and I thought they were much better than the stock tires. Hooked up a lot...

  9. New blower

    Performance Modifications
    When I ordered my 2.9 I was told that if I kept the JLT intake I would have to get the DiabloSport MAFia to make it work. I decided instead to get the Whipple CAI.
  10. New blower

    Performance Modifications

    I have the Ford Racing lowering springs. Perfect drop in my opinion.
  12. Forgestar wheels

    Wheels & Tires
    I don't know what the offsets were. I just told them I wanted 19" wheels to fit a GT500. They got them perfect.
  13. Forgestar wheels

    Wheels & Tires
    I went with 255/40/19 in the front and 285/35/19 in the rear to keep them the same size as stock.

    General Discussion
    I just did an 1800 mile road trip a few days after putting on the new Whipple and she ran perfect.
