Thanks Big Daddy :) I have a lot of work in front of me before I pick up the 03....I have to pull all my mods out of the 01........longtubes,nitrous kit,shifter,CAI,harnesses,wheels....etc..

But it will be worth it I'm sure. :D

I still need to get used to the stock power before I think about adding nitrous. I just can't imagine! :jawdrop:

Sorry for the late responce,

I was away for the weekend (SCMC N.E. fall cruise) in Maine. I am amazed at the job the SVT crew did on this car. I just can't believe its the same platform. It's soooo much tighter than my 01 was....the power is a given...that was no surprize :D

I'm leaving it mostly stock for the winter......I want to think about the mods before I do somthing I regret later.

Hey Dave the Predator just arrived tonight. Got it from these guys
http://www.rpmoutlet.com/03cobra.htm . $349 delivered to the door next day air with a new 180 or 160 thermostat. I'll have to read through the manual tonight order up a K&N Aircharger and try it out.

By the way I probably still feel better than you.:D Did you guys tap into the Crown before you retired?

Hey John,

I was just reading the online manual for the predator, are you doing a catback too? I was reading on modularfords.com about a guy who has a CAI and flowmaster catback and the predator
http://www.modularfords.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=5444 check out his results.

As far as the other night go's I think we drank anything that wasn't nailed down :rotf:

Wendy slept all the way home Sunday :p

Eventually I'll do the exhaust too. I still have the VRS catted X and the 3" FRPP cat back off the 99. The VRS will definetly go on and more than likely I'll get a Magnaflow catback and save the FRPP for the Summernationals and the Dream Cruise when I want to make some noise. I liked the way yours and Pats' sounded. I'm starting to get used to the lower decibel level with the stock system after living with the FRPP on the 99 for over a year even though at wide open throttle and high RPM the Ford exhaust is the balls. :cool:

The last time I took a look out there that night you guys were toasting with something that looked very flammable. .:mad: :p The strongest thing I had was the hot sauce. :rotf:

Congrats on the new toy man ;) I also agree that the sonic blue is by far the fastest color :) I thinki tadds about 20 horses just by itself!
