I'll start, I recently added a 8" Bazooka Bass tube in the trunk. Its small, fits in the corner and is easily removable. I didn't want a lot of bass, but now I can jam out cruising around town and not hear my flowmaster 40's.

Whats your's?
Does yours look like this?

1) Unisteer rack and pinion. Has a couple downfalls, but my god do I love that quick steer. I loathe driving any car after I've been driving Jane for a while because I love never having to turn the wheel more than 360* to make a turn. And if the car I'm driving isn't going off on a completely different vector when I turn the wheel a half inch to either side, I'm pretty mad.

2) EFI. Again, while my Powerjection isn't perfect, it has given me tens of thousands of trouble-free miles. No matter where I go, I don't have to mess with the tune, replace parts, worry about fuel quality, worry about heat, or anything else. Also don't have to piss off the entire campground with the "whrrrr whrrrr whrrr whrrr" of a carbureted cold start. So that's pretty good.

3) Custom console. That actually IS perfect as far as I'm concerned. I freakin' nailed that design and I'll brag all day long about it if you let me. While it is cool that it looks good, more importantly it holds all of my stuff on road trips and gives me the ability to charge up all of my electronics at once if needed. That's where music control, the camera, the sunflower seeds, the sweettarts, the candy bars, the gas receipts, and all of the electronics chargers go. Music control goes on the center panel, camera goes in the pocket to the left of the ebrake handle, sunflower seeds and sweettarts go to the right, and everything else goes in the compartment. Without that console, road trips would be just a horribly disorganized mess and sunflower seeds would be everywhere and my water would be on the floorboard on the other side of the car and the camera would be ejected off into outer space and I'd be listening to a song that I don't like and life would just be terrible. So yeah, I like my console

Oh, and the '93 Mustang seats get an honorable mention. They are not my absolute favorite thing (since I really liked the stock seats as well) but they sure do make it easy to plop down and drive for 6 or 8 or 10 hours

Simply because I haven't done any driveline modifications (yet) I'd have to say mine is LED lights from gtonavy. People can actually see the car now when I have my turn signals on! I also love the sequential tail lights, I've always thought Mustangs should have had them from the factory. You couldn't ask for a more prefect tail lights design in which to apply them.

I haven't "felt" my car out on public roads or even over 30 mph so I can't say how much I like the 3.80 posi rear, billet servo, shift kit C4, the cal-tracs, the Shelby drop, front Cobra brakes, AAW kit, . etc. so for now I'll say I'm real happy with my audio setup..
I made the console to plug my iPad mini into, it charges, syncs to my hidden glovebox pioneer. I have an ir repeater that sends remote signals to it. I made the rear trunk kit to house a 10"kicker, Rockford fosgate 6.5", 6x9's, and I just installed some JBL 3/4" tweeters in the A pillars to complete the sound stage up front and enhance the highs a bit.
Seeing as how I built the car by myself from the ground up though... guess you could say all of it is my fav.

Presuming it runs good, it would have to be my 331 but I think a paint job will take its place at some point.

331 solid flat cam, rings and bearings break in run up.

331 break in complete and is waiting on me to finish the body work

One of the last tnt's on my 289 may she rest in pieces. It ran in the
high 11's low 12's when it was at its best.
