2007 Ford Mustang GT/CS - Redfire - 5,885 GT/CS Coupes were built that year
Purchased my Mustang in Oct. '06. The GT/CS model got my attention, just as the first Mustangs had in 1964 when I saw them for the first time.
It was sad to see the gas crisis, along with Federal emissions mandates, forever change the muscle car era in the early '70's. As the Mustang II rolled out in 1974 it was all done and my interest faded.
Who knew 30 years later Ford would once again build a car like this? I wanted one and the '07 GT/CS really got my attention.
It's a garage queen during the winter. 13,000+ miles on it so far. Not a daily driver and doesn't see rain if I can help it. It's driven for fun only and to cruise nights 3-5 times a week. It was in factory stock condition until April of '09.
A few before & afters
The shots on the left were taken when the exterior and tires were still pretty much stock, before lowering the suspension, 235/50/18's all around. Too much room around the small tires.
Foose Black Nitrous 20's wrapped with Nitto Invos. The rear 295/35/20 tire is an inch taller then stock and nearly 2 1/2" wider. Really fills up the wheel well. No more tucked in look.
Repaired the holes where the license plate mounted on the bumper. Too bad NH requires a front plate. Looks so much better without one! The plate can now be removed for photos/cruise shows and re-attached to the lower grille insert with zip ties.
All the shots on the right were after suspension mods dropped the rear 1 5/8", and the front 1 1/8".
The larger rear tire appears to push the nose down for a more aggressive stance!
First video shows mods done as of Nov 2010. Then a quick launch at night just to hear the SLP exhaust. And the third one a start-up and rev. Yes, I warmed up the car first!
Modifications so far, listed by date;
Silver Horse Racing CS/Shelby GT Lower Grille Insert # S197-200-CS
SLP Loudmouth Axle-Back Exhaust American Muscle #SLP M31014
Stock cats and H-pipe. Have an X-Pipe waiting for install this spring!
No muffler, just straight pipes from the H-pipe. Wide open throttle sounds like a "Beast"! Nice deep rumble when cruising! Wasn't very hard to install. Took a little patience to center them.

Hurst Competition+ Short Throw Shifter #HUU-3910201, 4:10 FRPP Gears #M-4209-G410A
I have both the classic white and the black one just so I can switch it up when I want too. Tend to like the classic white one a little more.

American Muscle Clear Black Turn Signals #49055
SHR Tru-Billet Fuel Door #5001
J&M Extreme Joint LCA’s American Muscle #23942B
Trufiber GTS-3 Ram Air/Heat Extraction Hood w/Hood Shock, CDC Squirter Nozzle Relocation Kit, GT-R Headlight Splitters, Eleanor Grille & Black Racing Stripe
The stripe is 19 5/8 ins. wide with a 1/4 inch gap between the 1/4 inch outer pin stripes.
Fully functional Ram Air directs cooler outside air over the top of the Steeda Carbon Fiber Cold Air Intake. Cooler air is denser therefore providing greater air volume per cubic foot. This increased air volume improves horsepower.
The open design of the Eleanor Grille increases cool air flow to the radiator and engine compartment. The heat extraction vents allow hot air to escape. This allows for more efficient engine cooling reducing the amount of energy used by the radiator fans. That energy is better utlized by the rear wheels. And it's really cool to see the hot air vapors rising through the vents when you're at a stop!
Street Scene Eleanor Grille from Moss Muscle #055-624
The fit is excellent on the Street Scene grille from Moss Muscle and it's made with injection molded ABS plastic just like factory, not vacuum formed. This grille installed just like OEM and fit like a glove! Highly recommend it!
Tru-Fiber Hood Shocks
UPR Billet Aluminum Hood Pin Kit, Black #1138-11
Mounted the pins in the factory hood stop holes. This location allows the pins to line up with the circle on the underside of the hood. Slid a Ford shock absorber bushing from Needa Part Manu. (#310184) onto the pins for a new hood stop. Adjusted the height by trimming the small lip from the underside of the bushing.
The shot below shows the circle on the inside of the hood that the pins travel through.
The pins and scuff plates are turned in due to the angle of the hood. Mine ended up at 4-10 o'clock on the left, and 8-2 on the right. Looks mean IMO!
SHR Flush-Mount Quarter Vent Louvers
SHR Tru-Billet Black Rear Medallion #S197-400
Hood, stripes, window louvers, headlight splitters and rear medallion all completed by Scott Wright's Auto Body Shop, Exeter, NH. Scott and his crew are the best around. They took time to discuss the details and offer suggestions. Together we decided how the car would look. The entire process was a two way discussion. Had access to the car as it was in production to ensure the final outcome was what I envisioned.
