2005 Mustang GT Modifications

This is my first post so bear with me. Does anybody know any good Mustang specialty shops on Long Island, NY they would recommend. I am looking to do some non-radical modifications to my 2005 GT to get a little more horsepower out of it. What do you suggest? Thanks.

first off welcome the best bang for your buck will be a cold air induction and tune. American Muscle is your best bet with the JLT & SF3 combo. plus if you pm AMstanger you will get an additional % off for being a member your car will feel like a whole new animal, that is what i reccomend. if you know how to turn a screw driver and plug in a plugin and follow directions you will be ok, if you have any questions just post them here and somebody will talk you through it exhaust will make it sound good but it is worth any hp just coolness hope this helps

Glad to have you with us here on AFM, enjoy the forums.A Cold air intake and a custom performance tune will net you about 25 hp

welcome! I've heard and read others say good things about Realspeed Automotive on Long Island, though I'm not personally familiar with them.

If you are looking for a great shop on the island. I would recommend Mustang Magic. They are in deer park and have some great guys there. I have my car worked on there as do a bunch of my buddies with 600+hp.

This is not the law, just my experience.

Real speed is also a great shop from what I have heard, but have no personal experience with them.

Good luck.
