12's? I did that when I was younger and don't envy you. Did make a lot of money but I'm impressed you still come home and work on your car. I get lazy when I get home. Bending over to get mine supersnaked. I just bought a 2007 V6 mustang (pony) to put some of the GT500 parts Carroll gives back in the conversion. Selling my commuter and will enjoy 28 mpg with a spot to put my coffee mug. Putting a aluminum driveshaft and cold air intake to see if I can up the milage on the V6. Got in black also. Felt like a traiter driving a Honda insight. You're Shelby will be awesome with your Upgrades. By the posts I'm sorry you hurt your hand. GGBIW:)

I am done with the driveshaft(see post #1)I have both the exhaust manifolds off.I put the drivers side header on and then took it back off because I couldn't get the oil dip stick tube back in and then ripped the o-ring.I should have that done tonight maybe both sides.:D

The fun never ends. Since the tranny, cats and drive shaft are out I have decided to try and catch up to 07.:) Just ordered Bassani headers, cats and exhaust. Have to make this second gear issue end on a positive note. Or at least a loud one for that matter.:D :D

Thanks 07. Luckily i've been home and able to get my Shelby. Soon it's off to the middle east i go, once again. 10 fingers and toes still intact. Haven't done much to mine, but when i get back, it's full throttle. Much appreciate all the testing all of you have done, and data provided. Hopefully i'll get the SuperSnake package before leaving, if i'm chosen. I wonder if there's any military discounts.
