because the weather here its hotter than the one in the US
It gets up to 105 degrees where I live, and upwards to 110 sometimes. I run the factory spec 5w20, but I run full synthetic Royal Purple oil. If you get Mobile 1, make sure it is the extended protection. If it does not say extended protection on the Mobil 1 bottle, it's not 100% full synthetic.

You never want to increase the viscosity of the oil cold. Which is the 5w or 10w number. Your oil clearances are small and the engine won't get proper lubrication when the oil is cold during the initial start-up, if you run an increased cold viscosity. Now, you can get by with a 5w30, but I don't recommend it.

Shifter- The MGW shifter is a really nice piece as well. You'll hear good reviews about both Barton and MGW, so that decision is up to you!

Like others have said, I would just use the factory oil. That's what our Shelby uses and it runs completely fine.

It looks like everyone has beaten me to it when it comes to answers. Like they said, I wouldn't get cams. Cams cost a lot with very little gain. First modifications that I would do are a tune and a cold air intake. Most people that own Shelby's have a JLT cold air intake, however for the 5.0 I also heard great things about brands such as Airaid. When it comes to tuning, I would say most people on this forum have a Bama tune. However, other tuners like Brenspeed, Jon Lund and VMP are great as well.

For suspension, to start off a good set of lower control arms would help with things like wheel hop. J&M seem to be a popular brand when it comes to LCA's.

I'm in the Middle East too, and you do not need new brakes. I don't know any cars that have had to need new brakes to suit this climate.

Headers on these cars aren't really worth it until you get into FI. (forced induction, superchargers and turbos) I highly doubt they will get you 30hp.

Oh yeah, and welcome to the forum! Nice to see more people from the Middle East here.
