Great looking color and consider getting a set of wheels ( wider ) and some sticky rubber , simply because tires are the first and best option to help you go faster. There is a cornucopia of 200 Treadwear Tires on the market today, with plenty of choices that work well for both track and autocross. Have fun modding your Mustang in the coming months and years as they are very capable on the track or autocross and will often fool plenty of other Trackrats at how capable they are.

Welcome and you have a great Mentor if the " Fabman " sent you here!
Love that red also!!!!!!!!!!! and also that hood scoop....I had a hood scoop on my 2004 wasn't functional, but it added mystic to the car.........I guess Ford never offered a Connecticut Special Mustang because the only upgrade would be snow tires................Enjoy your ride..
