Yeah...i'm hoping as the supercharger and motor components break in, the mpg will get better. I'm at the gas station twice a week right now.

Not too bad. The all terrain tires help. Around town though the fuel consumption is through the roof.

Not specifically planning to use it, but one track/camp spot I frequent requires a river crossing. With this I'll be able to do that in winter when the river is high.
It's more of a precaution. Same as the winch.

For sure! Haven't had a manual for over 10 years. Took a minute to get used to again. Pulled the oem shifter & put in a Steeda short throw. Makes a huge difference. Also, added a catback Roush exhaust & cold air intake. She's not the fastest thing on the road, but she'll pass more than she won't!

Oh yeah a short throw is the only way to go. I bet that thing sounds nice now with that exhaust on there. Those new stangs look really good.

Still have never understood why people would want a sports car with an automatic. I understand they shift faster than a human. But where is the fun in not being able to slam gears.

My thoughts exactly. This is my third one. All straight shifts & all loads of fun! However, their is no comparison between these new S550 coyote mustangs & the fox bodies from the 90s & 2000s!

My new mid-life crisis :lol:

I have been eyeing one of these for a while now, but proved hard to find with a clutch..Finally found one! All wheel drive, good old fashion manual transmission, targa top and new twin turbo motor for a lot more mid-range torque :clap:
