    Picking a new ride

    Yep one of these threads... Budget would be $25-$30k and would replace my 03 cobra. 2010-2012 GT500 - higher miles (60-80k) but holds value; already 6-8 years old. 2015-2017 GT - low miles, ‘new’, lots of potential and a great interior. So where would you spend your money?

    fuel pump dead

    Fuel pump died this week so replaced it with a walbro 255lph pump and swapped the fuel filter out too. All i can say is it was a pain in the ass. Had a full tank of gas which only complicated it. Getting the fuel filler neck out sucked as did disconnecting the fuel filter. Overall from start to...
