Well folks, here is #0017 with all the latest mods:

2.5" Deep Dish 18" Torq Thrust wheels
255 Nitto Extreme tires
Muffler delete pipes by Pypes Performance
Shift light by Raptor Performance
Pioneer AVIC V3 Navigation/DVD/CD/Sirius/Ipod/Bluetooth (And some other stuff I haven't figured out yet).
License plate is GT390

It runs great, looks nice, sounds awesome (Not really THAT loud; unless you really get on it).

How hard was the Pioneer Avic D3 install?
Did you hook it up to the factory Sirius?
I have been wanting to do that also.
It looks great.
Thanks,
Ron
Hi Ron,
I bought it and had it installed by The Specialists in Tucson. It was a perfect match-up and they have the adapters so no wires are cut. I can switch back to the stock system with no modifications. I'm not making any changes to the car that cannot be reversed easily. The only problem I have with this system is that it is so much fun to play with that I need to stop now and then just to figure out one of the features I didn't know about!! Just a note; all systems designed to be placed in front of the driver have the DVD and Navigation functions disabled unless the car is not moving. There is a way to bypass this, which my installer offered to do (Unofficially). I now have a hidden switch under the dash that now allows me to play DVD's and make navigation changes while I am driving. This is great for long trips with my wife functioning as navigator. She can also watch movies if she likes (I've seen Top Gun so many times I know the dialog by heart, so I can stick that in my DVD and listen, with a rare glance at the screen). I went for the V3 because it actually has internal hard drives for both music and navigation, so I don't have to mess with disks or other distractions while driving. Almost every function can be controlled by voice which really adds to safety while still allowing full function. Good luck, and have fun!!!!

P.S. I forgot about the Sirius. I did have to get a new module for the radio, which is compatible with the V3. One phone call to Sirius with the new serial number and I was in business with no interruption.

Looking good!

Thanks a bunch. I'm being careful not to change things that can't be undone easily. My storage space is shrinking rapidly!

Ratman Great job looks great
Thank you. It's really hard to find things to do with the Bullitt that won't affect the spirit of the car. After seeing all the nifty accessories available for Mustangs, I'm half tempted to get a GT just to play with!

Big Ron
I know there are debates raging on the wheel situation, but I can say that these new wheels and tires make the Bullitt feel like it's on rails at over 120mph in turns. I do a lot of mountain driving and found the stocks to be just a little spooky sometimes. I realize that most people don't drive like I do, so the stock setup should be just fine for sane people; I'm afraid I just don't fall into that category very well!

Thanks very much for the detailed info!
I don't think there is anyone in Corpus Christi with the savvy. I am going to have to look for someone is San Antonio or Houston to do it for me.

Thanks again,
Ron

Would THAT be AWESOME????? I thought I was the only person old enough to remember Space Invaders! Actually, it's just the audio display. It looks fuzzy 'cause I do a crappy job of taking pics.

One of those rare situations where something works as good as it looks. HUGE difference from stock in high speed turns.

You might want to check with Auto Tech Car Audio on Apollo Rd. and see what they can do.

Out of curiousity, where'd you buy the AVIC-D3, and if you don't mind, how much did you pay?? You can PM me if you want. I've been looking into getting one of these for my 01.

Nice looking Bullitt by the way.:D

Hi Scott,
I honestly was not even on the market for anything. I was at an auto stereo store called The Specialists here in Tucson looking for a replacement for the radio in my wife's Hyundai. While I was waiting, I got to poking around at the new stuff. There were some units that were less expensive, but when I found out the V3 had internal hard drives I was hooked. I spent that evening on the internet researching as much as I could find. I finally decided to go for it the next day. The basic unit sold for $1800. The Bluetooth, Ipod, and Sirius were extra. The total cost for everything plus installation was $2600. It is the only "Toy" I've ever bought that I have not had "Buyer's remorse". It is a classy piece of hardware that really dresses up the interior and is fun to play with. I could probably have shopped for the hardware and gotten a better price, but this business has an excellent reputation and understood that I may want to go back to stock someday. For what I might have saved, I decided it wasn't worth the risk. I certainly would not have tried the installation myself. Hope this helps.

I must have those wheels!!!!!!!!!!

Or at least some very similar. What are the spces on them? Width, offset? Tire size? Looks awesome.
I bought the wheels and tires, mounted, balanced, and delivered to my door for just over $1300 from Americanmuscle.com

At first, I was not happy because I understood the color would match the '08 wheels, and they don't. However, they are beautiful wheels, and I will keep the stocks for the future. If you go to the site and click on Mustang wheels, and then '05-'08 wheels, you will find the 2.5" deep dish in different sizes. I chose the 18x9 with the Nitto 555NT after talking to Steeda, Ford Racing, and Saleen. They all recommended this combination for my type of driving here in the desert southwest. Hope this helps.
