George have to agree with you, the MGW shifter is so great. I didn't drive my GT long with the stock shifter as I changed out to the MGW fairly quickly given Bill's persuasion so it would be cool again to drive a stock shifter so I can really, really appreciate my MGW. We get used to perfection!

I've seen a few painted interiors at carshows. Looks 'okay' if done corectly, but not for me.

Here's one from last year's Edelbrock show...

Can't get to 738 either.

Maybe George can go there and check it out and report back.

I usually hate this kind of stuff, but the painted center console is intriguing. I'm with Bill if it's done tastefully then it's OK.

I had to post to read 738.... weird stuff. Hopefully the database problems doesn't force us to start a new thread.

This one was at Silver Springs last weekend and it was really well done. I usually wouldn't like that kind of thing at all, but this one was pretty nice.

Sorry guys (esp. Leo), I won't be able to make it on Saturday. Things are getting too hectic right now. I know Jed will more than make up for my absence. Have fun and I hope Leo doesn't end up in a gutter some where.

I would of posted this yesterday but you might not have seen it without scrolling back about a week.

Happy birthday anyway Leo!

Just came back from Walmart on a hot tip from Leo. 5 quart jug of Mobil 1 5W20 for under $25.... but they were OUT OF STOCK!

Well, I said screw it and got a case of 6 individual quarts for $34.02 (plus tax). Didn't feel like driving all over town to various Wallymarts looking for the jug to save $5 or so.

I have a new (and free) Ford Racing oil filter, so all in all, my oil change will cost just the purchase of the oil.

I did see the Motorcraft synthetic blend 5W20 5 qt jug for only $10... that was tempting.

I have a problem...

I find it to easy to stop spending money once I start thinking of a new mod. MAC L/Ts O/R Prochamber and now I think I want a set of new axle backs... Theres alot of good deals on stingers recently. Maybe even some Flows... So tempting to sell the GTAs in search of TRUE sound.

Honestly is the drone these systems produce THAT bad? I'll prolly stick with the GTAs with the initial instal but my heart goes in search of new sound haha

The flows had some drone but never anywhere near the point of unbearable. The Stingers are bad in certain RPM's for me if I'm cruising along between 65-75 no drone. between 75-80 annoying drone. Above 80 no drone again.

Phil,Tom you guys were complaining about last saturday being quite. Tomorrow will be even quieter since I'm assuming by the time they get home their going straight to bed. So you probably won't see a post from Socal untill early Sunday morning. After tonight I probably won't be back on untill Sunday night after the Packers win.

Thanks Tom.

I'll make sure Leo doesn't drink too much beer in-between his mod installs.

I've never heard GTA's so I couldn't tell you. If there an OEM muffler though I'm sure both flow's or stingers would be a great improvement.

I think the GTA's come on the Shelby GT/GT-H?

Doesn't Ray have the GTAs ??

The stingers have drone and depending on your gearing it's at different places. It's never been annoying enough to me to really bother me. Sometimes I'll notice it and it will grab my attention for a few minutes but other than that I wouldn't change a thing. With an O/R H there is noticable trumpeting at around 2500 that drives me batty. The upside to the O/R H is the sound at idle and WOT is to die for. Having been through Magnaflows and O/R H + Stingers and now back to the X-Pipe and the Stingers I am confident in the following.... You're Mileage May Vary...

1) It's the best set up for a S197
2) With an Off-Road H GTAs [b]may [/i] be a better muffler
3) The Deepness and 'burble' of the stingers is the best of the bunch
4) Even with LTs without the right mufflers it doesn't cut it.

As far as the STS turbo kit, that's the one with the turbo close to the tailpipe, right ???, I remember seeing an article once about it and just from the look of things it doesn't seem right. Not saying it doesn't work, I'm sure it does to a degree, but between the miles of tubing and just the weirdness of it I can't see how truly effective that set up can be. Look I'm not a huge fan of turbos (OK, it's free Horsepower so how bad can it be) and the complexity they add to cars, but If I HAD to buy a turbo I can honestly say I'd be hard pressed to pick which I'd by last, a GMS set up or the STS.



OK, so the GMS would be the last set-up, but that is only because of their sterling reputation and STS can't possibly be worse representitives for their company or for their customers than GMS is.
