Modifications???

Hello everyone. I am buying a 2010 GT with 35k miles later this week. The car is stock. What performance upgrades would you suggest starting with least expensive (I can do some basic things myself but major work is beyond my capabilities, so anything major might include paying for the work). I am looking for biggest bang for the buck so any info on expected HP and torque increase would be helpful as well. Thank you.

Agree totally. Don't waste money on the little stuff, they won't give you the results FI will, I've been down that road and know from experience. If I could go back in time and undo all the little mods I did I would, and do FI period.

IF MY CAR WENT AS FAST AS THE MONEY I SPEND ON IT, I'D WIN EVERY RACE

There are two disadvantages with going the bolt-on route on a '10 GT. The first is that it has a higher flowing airbox than the '05-'09, so the HP gain is smaller if you replace it with a CAI. The second is that the Steeda charge motion delete plugs are no longer available so if you want to delete the CMCVs, you'd either need to go with an '05-'08 intake manifold with delete plates, or go with the pricey Ford Performance manifold.

yep the supercharger is the biggest bang for the buck for sure, check out Department of Boost for lots of related info, including their "kit" which will get you to about 450 RWHP, which is about the limit for the stock internals


if you're thinking less bucks and less bang, we can suggest some other things . . .
