VEHICLE STORY

I purchased this 2010 Shelby in July of 2012 with only 10k on the clock. In January of the following year, I was involved in a minor bumper bender due to an elderly lady passing out and running a red light. It was then that I decided it was time to get serious about upgrading and truly making the car my own. I swapped out the stock hood for a Cervinis ram air hood and the stock 19 inch wheels for a set of chrome 20 inch razors. I wasn't happy with the stock 4x4 look so I decided it was time to get low. Eibach sport springs quickly went on with an adjustable panhard bar. Koni yellow shocks and struts were installed with Steeda heavy duty strut mounts to smooth the ride out a little. Shortly afterwards, Metco lower control arms and relocation brackets went on, and a BMR adjustable upper control arm soon followed. I was finally happy with the car's stance so it was time to turn up the volume. An MRT H-pipe with high flow cats kept the rumble low while Roush extremes amplified it nicely. The car stayed this way for about a year before I decided to go a little stronger. A JLT 127mm intake with a Diablo MAF brought the air into a new Cobra jet throttle body before being compressed by the new ported Trinity TVS that replaced the stock head unit. A new 2.4 upper pulley completed the new power upgrade. The car was then tuned to reach the final power numbers of 721whp and 657tq. Finally, some under hood parts were then hydro dipped with a snakeskin pattern to give it a little wow in the engine bay. Future mods are a set of long tubes and a one piece driveshaft to handle the extra horsepower.
