New to the forum. I’ve never owned a mustang and the only ford products I’ve had were trucks. I’ve had a lot of high performance vehicles ranging from a 2.0L 650hp Mitsubishi Evo X, GTR to numerous Porsche GT3’s. After being heckled by a family member that runs in the Baja 1000 I decided to sell my last Porsche to make garage space for the Dodge Demon. I haven’t looked back since and have been hooked on muscle cars. I was able to get a 2020 GT500 cftp in iconic silver with a painted racing stripe that should be built soon....hopefully.

here is a photo of the demon. It’s been completely debadged except the SRT logo which I’m taking off this weekend and has a matte plastic wrap on it.

I guess this is the howdy thread...so Howdy!

Thor here, '08 GT500 convertible with the TVS 2.3L blower, cold air intake, full bassani exhaust. It's new to me but low miles so I'll be searching for tuning tips (need to get rid of that darn 02 Sensor slow response message) and I need to do some more research on what else has been done to the car.

Here you see the GT 500 in it's natural habitat...the gas station with police looking on from the window. I like that they painted the station to match my car.

Hope to see y'all on the road!

Cheers!

From what I can spot, you have a Ford Racing TVS supercharger upgrade along with their intake and filter housing (probably a FRPP kit). Your throttle body looks stock (choke point) and you would benefit from a passenger side oil catch can.

You also have headers and it looks like that is an old dirty oiled air filter. I’d recommend a new dry filter.

Ah, yes, things I must research...why is my passenger throwing oil? :)
The PCV system returns oil to the back side of your supercharger. The oil not only coats your supercharger, but also your intercooler, which can result in reduced cooling. A catch can captures a majority of this oil to prevent any issues.

Guess it's time to introduce myself. I purchased my 2020 GT500 about 3 months ago. I had no intention of buying it since i have a C8 on order, but I went to my local dealer to see the first one they had received. The car was marked up $30k so when the salesman asked me if I wanted to buy it, I jokingly said 'I'll give you MSRP for it' and he took it. I was so shocked that I just decided to take him up on it.....so here it is. So far it's been a fun car.

Welcome Cody! Thanks for introducing yourself. Congrats on your inbound BEAST!

Race Red is a nice bright red on the 2020. You can see it on the left in this shot I took in Charlotte:

Hello everyone! My name is Pat and I live in Upstate NY. I contacted my local dealer last August to acquire the new 2020 GT500, and am rather excited to be here. I have been following the forum for quite awhile now, so I figured I'd finally make an account. I ordered the Base Model (Handling Package w/Recaro's) in Performance Blue with White over the top/side vinyl stripes.

I am a sucker for cars, and even collect vintage Hot Wheels (Redlines) in my spare time. Sadly, I do not have any photos to post as I am still waiting on my VIN... However, I have no complaints as I was lucky enough to get the Base Model for MSRP. As of now, my current daily is a 2012 Volkwagen Passat so I guess you could say I'm getting one hell of an upgrade!
