biggest bang for my buck

i have an 06 mustang gt i got it about 6 months ago. she parked for the winter now but i want to have new toys for her in the spring. so this is what she has already a 1 inch rear drop(roush), a shacker cold air ram air intake, flowmaster mufflers, hurst short shift, and off road x-pipe. so i'm open for ideas looking to spend between 300-400 biggest bang for my buck

3.90 or 4.10 gears are what I would do for the biggest bang for the buck.

Not superchips. I don't think anyone supports them. One good place to buy from is American Muscle. Here is the link: SCT SF3/X3 Power Flash Mustang Custom Tuner w/ 3 Free Custom Tunes - 3rd Generation SCT XCalibrator - FREE SHIPPING!
You get a SCT hand held tuner and 3 Bama tunes.

SCT used to stand for Superchips Custom Tuning. It was their custom tuning brand before they split off. Now, SCT is a very highly regarded name in the Ford industry for aftermarket custom tunes. You can purchase a box and have tunes written for your particular PCM code and modifications from a company like AmericanMuscle (Bama tunes).

Feel free to call Bama directly at 888.226.9764 Monday-Friday from 9AM-5:30PM EST and they'll be happy to help. They're here in the building to answer tuning tech questions, write custom files and use our in-house Dynojet 224xlc to research and develop the best custom tunes that money can buy! Give them a shout!

Good luck!

Defiantly go with a tune from American Muscle. That will be the biggest bang for the buck on an S197. I went with all 93 oct tunes from AM and can't wait for spring to come back to load up the race tune. I tried the street and performance tune so far and they are amazing.

2007 Silver GT, manual
3.55 Gears, Shaftmaster 3.5" aluminum drive shaft, Borla Stingers, Pacesetter ceramic Long Tube Headers, Pacesetter catted H pipe, Steeda UDPs, JLT CAI, MGW short throw shifter and Bama 93 Oct Street tune

2001 Laser Red GT, automatic (293RWHP, 310RWTQ) Gone but not forgotten.
