With all the money you will spend on an naturally aspirated setup to get only 310-320, it's not worth it. For the same amount of money, you can get a blower, run a safe tune at 8-9lbs and make 370-400.

I guarantee that once you go for a ride in a supercharged mustang, you won't want to be naturally aspirated anymore.

x2. I'm so glad I picked up a pair of cobra mirrors already painted black for $150 when they weren't so popular.

Thanks guys!

I've been flirting with getting some Cobra mirrors & getting them painted - but I'll have to wait for a good OEM set to pop up.

Crazy how much the market brings for those at this point - but they do look good color matched & all.

Nothing too crazy - No catastrophic loss of brakes - so that's a bonus! lol

I want to bleed my brakes again as I think the pedal can be a bit firmer - but it's hard to judge when you haven't driven the car a ton prior to ripping it apart! However, I figure it wont hurt to make sure all the old fluid is completely flushed out of the system.

With the amount of old fluid that ended up on my garage floor during this install - there cant be that much left as its all been replaced by now! lol

Pedal is going to feel mushy with the type of pads you have on those brakes until they get warm.

Most pads that come with BBK are geared more towards super aggressive driving (aka racing), so it's pretty much normal to have a mushy pedal and noise coming from the brakes until they warm up.

Why not those new MMD mirrors on A. M.? I think they look better than Cobras

Maybe you would say they look better, I don't think so. Looks like they don't fold either. They aren't bad though.
