Thread: Chris' 2007 GT

    Chris' 2007 GT

    Explore Kenny Brown Performance today!!
    Since I can't leave well enough alone, I figured it might be a good idea to start a thread to keep track of things. The modding philosophy that was passed on to me was "make it stop, make it turn, THEN make it go!" With that in mind, here's how she looked when I brought her home a few years ago with 23k miles on the clock:

    And here is how she sits now with about 64k miles:

    Most of the changes are below the skin:

    Engine/Drivetrain Modifications
    - JLT Series 3 CAI
    - Bama 91R Tune
    - Kooks Catback
    - JLT Oil Separator
    - MGW Short Throw Shifter
    - Exedy Mach 400 Clutch
    - Exedy Lightweight Flywheel
    - Black FRPP Valve Covers
    - Steeda HD Engine Mounts
    - JHR Stainless Steel Clutch Line
    - FRPP Intake Manifold
    - FRPP 3.73 Gears

    Suspension Modifications
    - H&R Race Springs
    - J&M Camber Plates
    - BMR Double Adjustable LCAs with spherical bearings
    - BMR LCA Relocation Brackets
    - BMR UCA & mount with spherical bearing
    - Koni "Yellows"
    - Fays2 Watts Link
    - CHE K-Member Brace with Torque Limiters

    Wheel/Tire Modifications
    - 18x9.5 Forgestar CF5s
    - 275/40-18 Nitto 555s
    - J&M Stainless Steel Brake Lines
    - Ford Racing Brembos

    Interior/Exterior Modifications
    - Pioneer Touchscreen
    - 8" Shorty Antenna
    - Raxiom Sequential Taillights
    - MMD Matte Black Taillight Trim
    - MMD Retro Mirrors
    - GT/CS Front & Rear Bumpers
    - SHR Decklid Panel
    - Smoked Turn Signals
    - Steeda Hood Pins

    I just finished putting on the BMR UCA today. I plan to rebuild the front LCAs with Prothane bushings, a Maximum Motorsports bumpsteer kit, and the Steeda balljoints in the near future and then my suspension will be complete, which just leaves MORE POWER!

    In all honesty, after building the whole suspension up, the car handles so perfectly that I'm afraid to upset the balance by adding more power, but I'm sure that won't last long!

    Very nice Chris!!

    It's great to see you utilizing the "Members - Builds & Rides Area" as it was meant to be

    I'm certain that with all the applied modification to your 07 GT...it must be a blast to drive. I for one really appreciate a well handing car!
    It's also great to see you personally engaged with the installation side of the mods (along with your assistant).

    The FAYS2 Watts Link video that you did offered up some cool insight as to it's functionality, as applied.

    Good stuff my man

    It is a ton of fun! It's damn near telepathic now.

    I'm looking at redoing the Fays2 video with my current suspension and a better exhaust video (I had the volume set WAY too high on my last one). I'll get around to it...eventually.

    I'll also be tearing up Thompson Speedway at the end of June so stay tuned for more pictures!

    Thank you! I looked it up, the one on 14 July? I think I should be able to make it. Need to iron out my schedule over the next couple of months.

    Home of the SmokinStangs - Northeast Mustang Rally!
    Went to check the pinion angle after installing the new UCA. Everything was already in spec, but here's some rear suspension porn.

    And my aunt sent me this picture of my uncle and I working on my dad's Bronco when I was a kid. Guess Ford runs in the family.
