Its been awhile

Hey guys, finally pulled the trigger on 16 black gt premium. I havent been on here in about 7 years but from what I remember these forums were the best. Few questions :

1.Looking for suspension suggestions i.e coilovers vs springs any recommendations?

2. Any experience with barton flatstick shifter? Worth it?

3. To maintain my warranty im limited to the ford performance pack tunes any experience with those? Typical gains?

4. Last but not least exhaust suggestions? Would like to minimize drone but maintain full setup headers etc i know there is no such thing as quiet headers but i do have neighbor what would be the relatively quietest setup that will still net some gains?

Thanks for any responses guys

Haven't followed the packages but figure for the stage 2 about 20-25whp. Springs depends on how low you want to go, eibach has options, BMRs also have some nice ones. Exhaust wise. I have longtubes and GT500 axleback with factory resonator and it's sounds good all around, no drone and no pissed off neighbors.

Yeah i was looking into the gt500 exhaust i like the sound and imagine it will sound great with an h pipe. How did you get it to fit? Did the have to custom fab some pipes or what? Also im looking at the eibach kit or the ford track pack i know eibach is roughly 1.5 inch vs ford being 1 just curious which handles and rides better

Honestly, I have the eibach pro kit with 20s. Now I kinda wish I had gone sportlines or BMR, to give it a slightly lower look in the front. Not sure as far as handling, honestly don't think you will see any difference unless you also swap shocks. As far as the GT500 axleback it sounds very good, fitment was straight forward, they cut the hangers off of the GT500 and weld 1 to match the factory setup. They cut the factory setup at the differential, mock up the GT500 axleback and make a piece that will fit from the stock pipe to the new axleback. Done.

I

Pretty sure this is the route im going to with gt 500 just to clarify. I can buy an aftermarket h pipe and the mufflers and they can fit it or do i need to keep it stock to fit the mufflers. Thanks

You can use an aftermarket H-pipe. The shop will fab up the mufflers.
