2005 V6 Mustang. Tuner or chip?

I drive a 2005 V6 mustang and just needed to ask some questions like:
  1. Would it be better to get a tuner or a chip for my car to get the best performance increase.
  2. What would be the best cold air intake to get.
  3. And i was looking at mrt exhaust and was wondering if it was the "best" exhaust performance and sound wise.
  4. Also is it really worth the money to get your 4.0 bored out into a 4.2?
Thnks for your comments.

i cannot comment on what to do to your 6 shooter, but i will add some about tuner vs. chip. if changing tunes was any easier/faster, i could swap tunes at a red light after some punk revved their engine. after the initial flash, i bet it takes less than a minute to reflash. a chip seems like it would take a while...

Don't mess with any chips. A for stroking the engine, better to take it to a 4.5.

Ok

In that case does anyone have some really good tuners to suggest and does anyone know how much it will cost to boar out the engine?

I have a 89 performance 89 torque and 93 race from bamachips.com
The 93 race is by far the best out of those 3. I don't even switch tunes anymore. I am going to order two tunes eventually to replace the 89's. I am going to get a 93 torque and a 87 performance, for when money is tight and i need to spend 40 cents less a gallon on gas
I got the xcal3 tuner and C&L intake combo for around $625.00. Did the install myself and it was really easy. I'm not even a do it your self kind of guy when it comes to cars.

Performance: C&L CAI with Xcal 3 Tuner. 93 Race tune by Bamachips. GT sway Bars. 8.8 Rear axle with 4.10 gears. Dual Magnaflow Exhaust.

Not performance... 7 inch In dash Pioneer DVD/touch screen deck, Shaker 500 system, Chrome taillight trim. Sequential taillights. Window tint, Viper alarm with remote start. Cobra radar detector with GPS. Black 18" bullitt wheels with Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II Tires.

boring a block is cheap. (last time i checked it was about $12 a cylinder) it's the labor to pull the engine, tear it down, clean it after machining, assembly, installing and parts that will kill you.

by the time you build a stroker V6, you could have a blower on, and the blower could follow you to your next car. as long as it too is a 6 shooter mustang
