Here's another consideration....2011 or 2012 GT500.  Yeah it's a 5.4, but this series is all aluminum block and heads, but not maxed out bored like the 2013 and 2014.  With the right aftermarket blower, easy 800+ to the wheels.  4 piston Brembos and 14" front rotors vs 15" 6 piston, but easily upgradable. A little more affordable than the 2013-2014 ones.  If you can find a Performance pack model, Recaros are standard.  Current GT350 is another option but the flat plane configuration is not really made for boost, although many aftermarket companies including Liginfelter have Whippled the Voodoo 5.2 with impressive results.  Good luck on the search.

A 2013 would be a good purchase for the right price and condition. Thee only upgrades that I would ever consider is improving the suspension as it is the only weakness in an otherwise amazing car.  So much power right out of the box.

Well I am sad to say I did end up selling my pride and joy 03 Cobra. She was perfect. I kick myself for selling her everyday. Luckily I don't ever see it. So now I am on my next mission to find me a GT500. I am not sure on the year I want yet. I really want a solid color car with no stripes on it. But I have seen a few that have caught my eye. Looking at a 2013 right now that is gray in color. It would look sick with some all black rims. So I will say to those of you lucky enough to have a Terminator, savor it, keep it and never part ways with it. I am still unsure about the newer Shelbys. My dream car would be a Super Snake or even a KR. She's out there somewhere but I am going to take my time and find the right one and not buy on a whim. I miss the cruising crew in Hawaii. Hopefully going to be out there within the next 6 months for some much needed vacation.

Spotted Joe driving the black Lighting Tuesday morning.  Quite the beard there!  I like it. :nod:
pretty fancy car there! Looks comfy! I had that bugs bunny feeling, you ever have the feeling you’re being watched!? :lookaround: :shaka:
Yeah, it's my inbetween car.  It will be gone once the right Mustang becomes mine. I was trying to get your attention and watch out for the zip lane barracade.  I like the Lightning by the way!

Thanks! Not bad for a 17 year old work truck :lol:

Thanks for the tips.  This thing is too loud.  Gonna put it up on stands and see exactly what's under there this weekend.  The popping and banging when you lay off the throttle is nuts.

Not sure this explanation convinces me of anything positive about self driving cars:

Congrats on the purchase.

Cats and GT500 axle backs is quiet and quality.

What the hell, you're getting rid of the 2014?  Hopefully another Mustang to replace it....nice to see ya posting up too.  I'm getting tired of the "Donalds" in this life....LOL

Nate, what you have is non Premium GT with the track package.  Torsen diff, 3.73 rear gear ratio, which is different than the standard traction lock diff which uses clutch packs.  In a nut shell, torsens are better for tracking the car rather than drag racing.  The setup is a little like the Boss 302, but without the full Boss springs and shock valving.  Since it is a base GT, interior is cloth based rather than leather and the instrument panel lacks the center LCD screen with the track apps.  Very cool find.

Now on the exhaust.  I'm kind of the old school deep rumble rather than loud and raspy.  These engines have a raspy character by nature.  One thing to notice on the stock system is the inclusion of in line resonators before the rear axle.  This tames the rasp a bit and if they were removed, that's part of the problem.  The cats removal is the second part.  A lot of the axle back exhausts are designed for used with cats and resonators in place.  Removing both and using an aggressive muffler and it's gonna sound like a former Honda owner missing his VTEC---complete ass. 

Check out the H pipe section underneath....it might be an off road x pipe.  My suggestion if you want an old school type sound, get an h pipe setup and put cats back on.  If the mid pipe section has no resonator, Borla, Magnaflow, and others sell shorty resonators that look like glass packs.  Weld those in.  Lastly, if it has the quad tip setup from the GT500, go to GT500 (Ford Performance) quad tip versions.  They have more baffling to cut down the noise.  All the kids are using Corsa Extremes which in my opinion are too loud.  Stay away from Roush mufflers too.  I have Borla S type axle backs on mine with the stock exhaust system which to me sounds nice as they were designed for the stock setup.  The mindset today is loud and obnoxious, straight piped with no thought as to tone character. 

Anyway hope our suggestions help, hope to check out the ride maybe at the next cruise night.  Congratulations and hope you have fun with it.  The Coyote S197s are cool cars and have a lot of aftermarket support.  You've made a great choice.
