Spring Mods anyone???

I'll be the optimist and say spring is on its way.......yah, I know its February, but I'm hoping to be back on the road at the start of April.

Soooooo.....who's been planning mods over the winter ??

Oh, Oh, Oh, Mr Kotter.....



Our Resident CMOC Diva probably wasn't even thought of at this time, but anyway, the older crowd will get what I'm saying.


I'm going to pull the trigger on the Ford Performance GT350R Rear Seat Delete, super easy to install, and might even drop a few pounds too.

I love the way this car sounds with the rear seat backs down, and chances are, no one is ever going to sit in the back anyway.

Good news, if the time arises where I need the back seat, easy to retro fit.



Ford Performance Part #M-6346612-M


Anyone else got plans for the nice weather, 1lo already posted his.....curious to see what everyone else has on tap.

The only plan I have is to get it out of storage. Come on Miss April! <---- It's Miss February up in my garage now, Miss March is next. Then the beautiful Miss April.

That seat delete looks much nicer than the ones I've used in the past. I don't have any mods planned, as I've got nothing to mod. I'm hoping to come across something before spring.

This had peaked my interest. I don't ever have passengers let alone rear seat passengers lol.

I'm a relatively short guy, 5'8", so the seat is pretty far forward, and theres barely enough room for a child to sit behind me, very little between the seat cushion and back of the front seat.

Installation looks pretty straightforward, and as I said, you can always go back.

Best part is that it's OEM equipment, so fit and finish is spot on.

Got these on my shopping list too.....

https://performanceparts.ford.com/part/M-5300-W

- Fits 2015-2017 Mustang GT350 and GT350R
- Gives a more aggressive-looking stance, as well as increased handling dynamics yet maintains excellent ride quality
- Lowers car approximately 20 mm front and rear
- Works with both standard and MagneRide suspension systems
- Designed to work with production struts, shocks and sway bars
- May cause slightly harsher ride when compared to stock springs

If it looks half as good as the S197 kits I've seen, I'm in, and they're pretty reasonably priced. I love how its a perfect fit for the application, no other mods required.

Solid list, how much of an improvement with the Blowfish shifter support? I've heard of replacing shifters, the support thing is new for me.

I was experiencing periodic nibble on the 2nd to 3rd gear shift on my 2013 Boss, pretty much from when I got it. Some cars had 1st to 2nd gear grind also. I was told by the dealer it will go away when the trans oil was warmed up. Oil heat didn't make a difference. I installed the Blowfish shifter support and have never felt it again, both with civil driving or spirited driving. The biggest problem with the MT-82 transmission is the shifter is mounted to the floor pan on the under side of the car, therefore when accelerating the transmission and shifter don't move together. The Blowfish support basically mounts the shifter to the transmission so they move together on acceleration, of any style. Kind of makes the MT-82 work like a top loader, or Tremec. Oh, it also has a drive shaft hoop built into the design. I would recommend this for any MT-82 transmission. Easy install and completely solid feel.

In my opinion don't waste money on a replacement shifter, this will fix the problem.
