$260 seems reasonable to me. How much of a PITA is the install though?

You may want to buy one for a 2011 GT. The trans is different. haha

Here is part 1 of 3 on installing a MGW.

Dan, You are quite welcome. Make sure to order year specific parts. The 2010 has a different motor & trans as well as other odds and ends. Don't want to get the wrong parts.

LOL @ Jason

please! I have posts about them going back to 2010. When you still were swinging off of GM nutz!

Then I get the Saleen grill. Days later you get the Saleen grill. (Waiting to see the badge you put on yours. I bet I can guess what that will be HA!). I have a MGW shifter now you are getting one. I buy wheels and you say you were going to get them. Then I get the power pack and now you say you are getting the power pack. I see a trend her!

I am fucking with you Carter!!!! You started it. haha That is the problem with these cars right now. Not a whole lot of options on a lot of stuff yet. Wheels are about the only thing you have a lot of choices with. I can't wait to see what the aftermarket will come up with on these cars. Especially the motor.

btw, When are you going to sign up on CMC? VERY social group over there. There are even members up by you. haha click here

Tons of aftermarket for the new Coyote's. The suspension, brakes, etc. are essentially carryover parts so you have tons of good choices there. Join S197forum.com. They have a good 2011+ section.

I meant the motor itself. Not the S197 platform.

I am a member over there. That is where I found the wheels and brembo hookup. Been reading up on these things for sure.

Oh, and the Koni Yellow struts are on back order till late March or early April. boooo!

There were some cheap Koni yellows FS a few days ago.

If you see some Brembos, let me know. I've been looking every so often. Kind of funny that you asked me to stay on the look out haha.

I saw the deal on 2010. They are different for 2011-12. Different part number at least. :whoknows:

I think he normally is $500 for the new calipers. Have not seen any used set ups since last year. Of course when I want to buy them none are to be found. haha
