I'm looking at the Ford Racing Stinger, the Bassani 2.5 or the Borla Stinger set-ups. What one is better or are they all equal??

Thanks
Ron

I have the Bassanis, and I've heard the Ford Racing in person. They are similar, but the Bassanis have a lower, deeper rumble than the FRPPs. I really like my Bassanis. The FRPPs and Borlas are the exact same exhaust.

Thanks for the reply guys. Are the Bassani's easy to install as advertised??

Also, rpretzel, what is the shorty antenna?? I'm taking it as half the size of the stock one?? Is that a Ford product??

Also, both, the custom Cobra Floor Mats, are those the ones offered by Shellby?? I'm planning on the Signature ones with the color stripe. Does the Trunk Mat come the same??

Thanks
Ron

Bassanis...I paid $80 for a muffler shop to install...he said he had a few minor problems.

I got my Black with a Silver Cobra floor mat set from Late Model Restoration supply.

I also have a shorty antenna...14"...got it from California Mustang.

Good luck

The Bassanis were relatively easy to install. I had to do a little tweaking to get them to line up correctly. Make sure you loosen the clamps at the x-pipe. It makes alignment oh so much easier.

Shorty Antenna

I got my floor mats from LateModelRestoration.com

As far as the Shelby mat set goes, yes, the signature and stripe pattern on the trunk mat will be exactly the same as the floor mats.

Installed the Bassanis yesterday. It was an easy install and took just a little over an hour. I love the sound and as the Prez discribed, they have a deeper, throatier sound than the Borlas.

Also installed the Steeda Billet Hood Struts. Another easy install.

In addition, the Evolution Stage II should arrive today. A good project for next weekend.:D

That's great, Harley. I'm glad you like the Bassanis. I still get goosebumps every time I start her up. :D

Welcome to the forum and congrats on the purchase of the car! You need to post pics. I hope you bought the fastest color.:D (performance white)

I really like the Bassani's deep throaty sound. Stock was just too quiet for me. I think you'll be happy with them also. You can buy them at V8POWER.com for $426.55 +$15 shipping. The same mufflers in the Steeda catalog lists for $529.95.

I probably won't get to the pulley swap until the end of next week. Too many irons in the fire right now. As far as I've read, everyone that has installed the Stage II loves it. They all feel a remarkable difference.

Keep us informed and we love to look at photos.:)

Man I love that red stripe. That is going to be hard to beat. You also got body color correct.

Welcome to the board.

Your right. Since I decided against the Super Snake or the 40th packages for the coupe, I starting to do some of the mods I saw that I liked on the Romeo trip.

After Stage II, the suspension and then maybe a gear. :D

Harley, When did you order the stage II. I ordered mine Friday evening. I figured I should get it some time this week (the money already came out of the checking account)

I ordered it Thursday and Fred said that I may get it Sat. because i'm not too far from them. Evolution is in PA and I'm in IN.

It showed up Monday.

You should probably get it today.:)

How soon do you plan on installing it?
