cai, tune, x pipe w cats, aluminum dss drive shaft. skip the headers thats $1000 for kooks + about 5-8hrs to install.. another $600+.

suspension is soft, but that is not necessarily bad - it will roll more but as far as pure track times go this is a big ass car and it needs to plant weight via transfer.. and the track pack springs are already optimized as are the dampers. you also get the nice hard bite brembo pads, boss oil cooler, etc..

Depends on what parts and how far you go. Shorty headers plus axle back, then Tune and CAI, you might be around $1500.

But if you go with Kooks Long Tube Headers and a matching shorty catted x-pipe, you're already at $1500. Add on a nice Cat-back system, add another $600-750. Now finally add the CAI and Tune, another $650 for a grand total of $2750.00.

I can pick up a set of JBA long tubes for about around $600, and I have an exhaust guy who has helped me out in the past for cheap. I'm betting I can get full exhaust done for $1100.
I'm surprised nobody has mentioned a BOSS 302 intake manifold

I just don't think the gains from the Boss Intake are good enough on a stock GT motor w/o full exhaust and Tune. Plus once you've done that, you're could be well over $2000.

Someone on here had done the Boss Intake, 85mm TB, Full Exhaust, Tune, and CAI, and were pushing around 450hp to the rear wheels, which is about 515hp.

Get a tune and on your way home roll up your warranty papers and smoke them. Then when your car breaks down come back on here and start a thread about how much you hate ford. Lol
