    CURRENT modifications: Gearhead intercooler & turbos, XDI fuel pump, DW booster pump, Stainless Works catted down pipes, EPP CAI & hotpipes, Anthony D torque mounts.

    Within the first week of owning the car I flashed it with the Gearhead AO, a month later I had the turbos, intercooler, and XDI pump installed by Gearhead. Finding downpipes was a chore, PPE downpipes were both made to order and back ordered at the same time! I settled on the Stainless Works catted downpipes and so far they have worked out, no codes. I plan to replace the stock wheels and add lowering springs in the next few weeks.

    So far I am loving the SHO, it’s fast without being a bonor-magnet. I also love the fact that it’s poor mans luxury sedan since I have severe back issues.

    This was my last fast car, a 1972 Ford Gran Torino Sport. I bought the car in 04’ when nobody knew what Torino was! Getting parts was insane, I had to fabricate the blower intake using an Edlebrock intake , nobody made a blower intake for the Tornio at the time! I built 4 motors for the car and replaced suspension, rear-end, axles, everything! The car was fun but was a total bro-magnet. DE428E46-8AF0-4687-928A-10324D759DAF.jpeg

    Nice mods. I agree there's plenty of reasons to love the SHO. It can pretty much do it all from AWD, space, luxury, performance, ride comfort, etc. For me it's a perfect segue car until I can afford a true RWD sports car and a 4wd vehicle separately for the winter. Looks great! How does it sound?

    That sounds amazing. I love the way my car sounds, but I’d seriously consider a stockish setup...

    Oh, and WELCOME! Love the cars!
