Thoughts on Next Mod?

SO I've been contemplating what my next mod should be, and I thought I'd get your input. Right now I'm debating between the 3 choices in the poll with an open thought for any better suggestions. I need a new bumper due to hitting a tire on the highway at night that I didn't see. I would also like retrofitted headlights mainly because the Raxioms just don't offer enough light output. I want the throttle body because I know it will compliment the LT headers and X pipe well, however if you have any suggestions to what my next mod should be if it isn't a choice please post them below.


2011 V6 Black Mustang Automatic: Magnaflow Competition Series Cat-Back Exhaust, Airaid Cold Air Intake, Raxiom Smoked Projector Headlights, Raxiom Smoked Aero Tail Lights, 93H-R3.1 Bama tune, BBK Long Tube Headers, BBK Catted X Pipe

4.10 gears in that automatic would be great!

I haven't done them yet, but seriously EVERYONE tells me they make a huge difference. Once I finish lowering my car, it's between gears or more exhaust tinkering.

Otherwise, I vote TB

Since you're doing some horsepower adders I'd assume you enjoy doing a few highway pulls from time to time (only saying that cause I do). If that's the case you might want to get a new driveshaft if you haven't already. 2011 V6 shafts are supposed to have a high failure rate when reaching a certain speed.

I would do the gears. I put 3.73's in mine and it has been the best improvement and the most enjoyable one as well. But, depending on the damage to the bumper, I would get it fixed first. My next mod is the drive shaft and safety loop.

I always thought my cars looked great , as they came from the factory. But there is never enough power. So I vote , throttle body. It goes on easily, doesn't take anything away from the looks or driveability, doesn't break your bank account but earns its keep when you exercise you right foot.
But why stop there. Longtube headers, tune, CAI, only add to the fun.

Well I had a list set up, it went Throttle Body, then Gears with the Drive shaft and LSD, and then bumper. However over the course of about a month (during which I was saving for my LT Headers which I love!) I got a lot more people asking about what happened to my bumper, that's the main reason why I bumped the bumper up on the list but I'm having my doubts, and so I came here to see what your thoughts would be.

Definitely getting the bumper damage fixed would be first. Than some retrofit projectors would be nice, heres some on my old civic I did myself. Definitely improves lighting!
