Mustang fever till I die!!!
Throw-out bearing went out at about 132,000 miles.
Battery needed around 133,000 miles.
Traction-lock went out at 136,500 miles (only one tire burns rubber!)
Rear seat belt doesn't come out, need to replace.
So far I've dumped about $1900.00 into the car in performance parts. Which includes FMS 15/8 headers, JBA cat h-pipe, MAC Flowpath cat-back w/31'2 inch. tips. Sounds almost like a big-block.
Factory 5 rear upper/lower control arms, welded subframe connectors, Hurst/Saleen short shifter, MSD blaster coil, Crane 1.72 roller rockers, and lowered 2 inches.
I just bought FMS 3.73 gears and a posi clutch-pack, but I've decided to save them for my next car. I'm going to sell my heavy-weight convertible in favor of a light-weight LX hatchback. The LX is going to receive the brand new, out-of-the-box gears/clutch-pack and I'm going to switch the control arms over too.
The convertible GT is great and I hate to let it go, but the LX has the weight advantage and is safer to take to the track.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
