That being said, this car is an absolute blast. I'm having way more fun than I did with the scoob. It has the full rear partition, window bars and plastic seat. One of the best benefits is the fast lane on the freeway is always open for me, which makes commuting nice. Everyone gets over immediately when they see me.
I just did the "jmod" to the trans this weekend so it shifts instantly, instead of the normal slow/laggy ford 4r70w shifts. I gets up and goes pretty good now. It's got big sway bars and firmer suspension than the civilian model so it hugs the pavement really well for being 4000lbs, but it rides like a cloud. I get a ton of compliments on the car from all sorts of people. The border police got a kick out of it when I went up to Canada 2 weekends ago.
I'm actually thinking of putting a 70mm turbo on it pretty soon. Already talked to The Mustang Shop down in Auburn about it. They're excited to work on it. haha
haha! That is just rad. How/where did you find this beast all dressed up with the partition, window bars etc? My buddy in HS picked a police interceptor in but nothing to this level. The "jmod" sounds like a good deal...keep us posted with whatever goes on with this car!
