Default 2007 V6 Mustang Performance parts? Exhaust or Tuner

Does anyone have any suggestions on weither i should first get a better exhaust because im looking at a Borla or a Gibson exhaust tip or a tuner and if so, do you have any suggestions because im not necessarily the richest guy around. So I need to know what i should get for the best performance for the buck.

well performance per buck would be a CAI/tuner combo, it will bet you about 20-25 RWHP for around 550 bucks. an exhaust set up, depending on how you do it, (there are countless ways to go about doing exhaust) will net you about 10 RWHP for about 250 bucks for a single muffler to anywhere around 600-700 bucks for a true dual exhaust set up, which i HIGHLY recommend if you decide to exhaust before tuner.

basically its up to preference, a well done exhaust not only looks great and sounds great, but it will give you a moderate performance boost. However a tuner/CAI combo will give you the biggest performance boost for your buck if you only care about that, but im not sure if your restrictive stock muffler will hinder the gains of the cai and tuner

Default Upgrading

It is just my opinion but big name means big money not bigger power. I bought a Dyno Max Cat back Dual on sale with free shipping and it is 309 SS and I got the whole kit for under $350 with free shipping. It cost less than the Magna Flow single axle back I had on it for a year. And a hand held Tuner I picked up at AM with life time free tunes. Shop around sometimes if you put in the leg work you can get more four less. I wish I had some one too help me along the way with my mods I would have been happier got what I really wanted and spent less.

Also once I get cleared since I'm new here I will be posting some very nice V6 S197 upgrade slightly used parts. And I would be more than happy to help out and answer and questions or give advice to help out a fellow V6 Mustang Love like myself.

CAI and Tuner Combo is the Best first Mod hands down, then a Dual Exhaust. You wont gain any HP from going duals but it will sound and look better and be better for your car. You could gain up to 10-12hp by adding a good after market single axel back muffler but for the money it cost for one you could add a little more and go True Duals. I'd take the sound and look of true duals over a single muffler any day.

As the others said the tuner and cold air kit is where the power will be. I would rather go exhaust first mainly to get it outta the way and for the sound.

A Tuner and a Cold Air Intake is a great bang for your buck upgrade. American Muscle offers free lifetime tunes with there's and sometimes you can get a CIA and Tuner bundle and save some bucks. The next best upgrade is lower gears factory V6's came thru with 3.31:1 a set of 3.73's will make a huge difference. But you might want to wait until you have the cash for a posi hey while your in there it's the right way to go. And AM's Bama Tuner can compensate for speedo correction and with life time tunes everything you do to upgrade they will tweak you tune no charge.
