Yeah right. There are DAYS between now and November 7th.

I'll be happy with 420 with my setup.. and that's without forking over $$ for an IC and pulley.

Yeah you'll have 420 with your setup of no IC or pulley until of course your IAT's sky rocket and the timing gets pulled then you'll be 400 or worse.


BTW-Look for pics of Perry's car and you'll see a black stang with anthracite bullits.

Anthracite 2005+ Deep Dish Bullitt Wheel (18x9)
NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 Tire (255/45-18)
NITTO Extreme Performance NT555 Tire (285/40-18)
Mustang center caps
Chrome Acorn Lug Nuts

I was going to get 305's for the rear but looks like the biggest 555 tire Nitto makes is 295. For some reason AM doesn't sell that size. I'll be calling first thing in the morning just to double check though.

There go the gauges and then some.

Factory Bullits, BFG KDW tires, and spacers are all up for sale.

What do you guys think should I switch to black bullits or keep the anthracite?
Rims are awesome. I like how they look on Brian's Mustang. Only thing is you wont be able to add and big brake kit. No other rim which interest you?

I would do anthracite colored bullits. Add some contrast to the black mustang.

BTW-The Bi-Polarness continues....Spoke with Adam for the first time today and asked him questions about all sorts of stuff. So anyways this is what the outcome of the conversation.

Going with KB BAP instead of GT500 pumps (Adam said it was a waste of money unless I plan on going over 500hp. Which I won't because I don't plan on getting forged internals anytime in the forseeable future.)

Getting guages installed same day. Going with a boost, WB A/F, and Engine/Coolant temp (He only runs boost and WB A/F but If I insisted on a third he recommended Coolant temp over fuel pressure.) He said all other guages were just more things to look at and stress about.


Since I don't want the engine to go boom and explained I didn't have the pockets for that situation he recommend I go no higher than 420rwhp. So regardless of what numbers he get's on the initial pulls I'll be staying at 420.

He warned me that more than likely my tranny would go at some point in time and told me to start budgeting for that.

He told me I'd lose 1psi with the intercooler but that it would obviously be made up for with the 3.33 pulley I got.


I am now 100% sure I'm going with ST.
Yeah, 1 psi sounds about right. I lost over 2 psi from the cooler and LT's.

So far looks like the anthracite are the favorite.

The only other rims I'd consider are the the CS69's but since Bill's been dead set on those from the beginning I don't want to steal his thunder. Plus getting those would've added about an extra $500 to the total. I'm happy with these even if it means big brakes are out of the picture. I'll consider the rims paying for themselves by keeping from spending money on brakes.

Thanks. I'll admit the Mustangs by the Bay had alot to do with it. Made me feel insecure about my tire size.

After the blower install though I swear I'm done modding for atleast a few months. Don't worry I'll pull the flags on myself.

Pictures of Perry's car with anthracites. Keep in mind his car's not lowered and his setup isn't staggered.

Yeah, don't be raining on my parade.

I think it's way more than $500 over your Bullits.. maybe I'm thinking chrome 20's.

I thought they were darker, hell I didn't know what Antracites were until now. Leo I think you should go in the Black or Black chrome spectrum, join the cool mugs like Jed. That's no. Think sinister...Hey Isn't Perry, Jennifers hubby?

I'd rather have the Bullitt rims, those anthracite ones look a little too light
