$40? I know it's chump change, but we can hook it up for free.

What the heck does that mean?

I got that Racer from Doug. I know it's been over a year, but want me to see if I can get it replaced thru him?

My turn..
I kinda see it as a waste of $$ too. Like Leo mentioned, you have to get your ET down consistently through experience till it can't get any better. Then, you can seek to lower it further with gears, ice box, whatever.

Now, down the road when you get another DD and you retire the GT for pleasure and track duties, go all out like Mark, Don and others have done.

Maybe it's because I'm not a track guy, but I find it difficult to spend hundreds just to lower my ET by 1 or 2 tenths of a second... which truely is just fractions of a second.
But on the other side of the coin, I spend the same $200 on a differential cover that no one ever sees.
I guess we all have our madness.

Nope. Sold mine to George.

Jed has the Street intake.

Drive your car the way you want to drive it, and do it everyday....... it will love you for it.

Someone mention hot air being shoved down someone's throat?

... which is why you limit the timing to survive the highest IAT it'll encounter. Then anything cooler is just safe... err, safer.

It has been a year, I'll buy a replacement if I stay N/A.

The question is go supershaker or supercharger or

go with this.........

For you I would go SuperShaker! That's all that's missing.

I wouldn't mind a 2011 GT-500 w/ a 5.0 as a daily driver if it comes that way. I'll have to wait and see. Yes I would keep the ROUSH! Just dreaming right now at work!

If staying N/A, tell me first so I can see if Doug can warranty it. We'z tight man!

But the smartest decision is the SuperShaker.. you're motor is all set for it!

my .02... SVT.

You'd have to modify the supershaker to get it so it didn't look retarded and even then you'd be worrying about the big boom, granted it'd be less likely because you are forged. The SVT has a nicer interior, it's newer and is already built for FI....


then you can sell me your nav-unit

Yeah I know, but I really hate doing electrical work and I already had him add it in and I don't have the light yet.

I tried for 6 months but no takers everyones selling so there's a major surplus. I'll give it two years before that market improves. Right now rentals are HAWT! so I'll do this a little longer and be a Landlord! The plus side all my travels to AZ will be a tax deduction...yes that means Barrett Jackson! Sweet next week.

Not having the light is the stopper. Jed, Kev and myself would've wired that sucker in for you while you're under the car.
