a responsible choice
Jeffrey Hung – Canada (British Columbia) 2008 Highland Green #712
I'm not going to lie. The car was an impulse buy on my twentieth birthday on Mar 20, 2014. I thought to myself, "Hey, you're twenty; you need something to keep you busy, and responsible." Well... I was far from responsible for the first 3 years of driving the car!
I have JBA equal length shorty headers, off road H pipe, mid mounted Pypes M80, and Ford Racing FR500S mufflers. I have replaced the transmission twice (on the third transmission), replaced the axle assembly once, from crashing. With the new axle assembly from a donor 2011 GT, I forgot to put gear lube in it. It seized the pinion into the housing so the ring and pinion got replaced. I replaced the ring and pinion again in 2020, along with carbon fiber clutch packs replaced because it got noisy and the clutch packs were worn. I installed an MGW shifter, Whiteline and RTR rear upper and lower control arms, GT500 front control arms, Prothane Bullet motor mounts, and Driveshaft Shop aluminum 1 piece driveshaft. I also have American Muscle deep dish Bullitt 19" wheels with a staggered set up, 4-piston Brembo front brakes. A Ford Performance adjustable handling pack is in my future.
