2014 GT - Roush phase 3 what's next?

New to the form. Sterling Gray Metallic, Evolution Performance dyno tuned, Roush R2300 with upgraded 68MM dual throttle body, MGW shifter, Roush Axel Backs, 601 rwhp, 553 ft. lbs trq @ 10.3 lbs boost stainless clutch line, window tint. Looking for suggestions to add some more rwhp, car isn't raced just looking for BA street car. Car is only driven in the spring and summer. Thanks for the advice.

I see no mention of suspension mods or tires. You need to get that power to the ground and the stock setup is going to have issues doing that effectively.

Your kind of close to the limit of the stock bottom end. Any more substantial increases in power is going to need a built bottom end.

Oh, it's not a Roush car, just Roush supercharger . . . yes definitely tires and suspension.

And I would want to take it on a track for sure; no way you can explore its limits on the street.

Long tubes? Drive shaft for certain with that power to be safe.
On another note - and I think some will back me up on this - set up for the street anything over 500 hp at the crank is vanity on our cars - street set ups will not put the power down and if you do manage it would be completely unsafe to do so on the street.
Having said that - different strokes - long tube headers will help up the hp and tq numbers - definitely look into an upgraded drive shaft
