Smile Dark side convert

I hope I am still welcome here, I promise not to become an annoying fanboy.

But my Hummer H3T was just not cutting it at all for me. So after only 2 months and 12 days of owning it, I had to get something different.

I now drive a Black 2008 Mustang GT,

Manual Transmission, leather, nav, HID, (no fake hood scoop)--- and I have the "ugly" wheels, which I will have to update them soon.

And to point out the obvious.. It is not near as fast as a 2010/11 Camaro SS. But it is a very fun car to drive. I enjoy it a lot.

Financially this car fit my budget at the moment, Not to mention I have become quite a fan of Ford (after my wife got the 2010 Edge, and My buddy got a Black Mustang Bullitt (2008)..

I am feeling that My old Pontiac G8 GT was faster than this car a tad bit in stock form, (very close) and with my Pontiac tune, intake, exhaust, I was most definitely quicker in that car. But the stick is soo much fun.

Congrats on the new purchase! To me, as long as it doesn't have hamster power, it's fun to drive.

Grats! The 3v 4.6 is a great motor to boost. When you build the funds up I would look into the Kenne Bell.

You said ugly wheels? I think those are the best looking wheels that came on those model years'.

Congrats though! As long as you like it and can afford it, then hey whynot?!

really,, wow, I wouldn't have thought they would have been considered the nicer wheels to many folks.. Cool..

Maybe if I upgrade, I will be able to sell these off, to recoup some of the money dished out for the new wheels

My bro had an 05 GT , and people always told him that it could only take upto about 450 whp before upgrading the internals?
