New 16 SHO owner

Just purchased a 2016 SHO. Very impressed with it so far. Other cars in the stable include a 2001 Bullitt Mustang currently running 8.6 @ 158 in the 1/4, a stock 2016 Z06 Vette, and an F250 to pull the race trailer. We sold a 2003 Mach I to buy the Vette.

Thanks for letting me join! I'll have LOTS of question on the car at first but hopefully after a bit of time I can contribute information back to the group. It's unlikely the SHO will stay stock for long after some break-in miles. I do my own tuning. Used SCT on the Bullitt for years but it recently acquired a Holley EFI system when I went from a Vortech JT-Trim to twin PT 6466 turbos on it for the power adder. I'm probably going with HP Tuners for the SHO because I want to learn that system and it will work on both the SHO and the Z06. I have a well outfitted garage that includes a 2-post lift. Sort of a car freak here, honestly. In case you didn't get that so far.
