2004 GT Speed Demon

So, I want to add some horses power to my pony, but don't have the adequate funds for a supercharger. What are some affordable changes that will shave some seconds off of my 1/4 mile?

cheapest hp per dollar is definantely Nitrous. I would recommend checking out a ZEX kit. easy to install and maintain as long as your fuel system and engine/trans is in good operating order.

Or you can do full exhaust, smaller pullies, Cold air intake, bigger throttle body, etc...... the list goes on.

The only thing stopping you is $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

I wanted more permanent horsepower. Refilling NO2 would get annoying.

BBK CAI
BBK 78mm TB/Plenum (lose a little bit of take off, but gain it back at about 3000RPM+)
MAC Longtubes
MAC Prochamber (high flow cats)
Flowmaster 40s
Comp Cams Stage 2
4:10 Gears
Intake Manifold
Heads
KB 2.1 or 2.6

Now keep in mind some things will require a new tune after the part is on, but with that build you should make pretty good power an you can slowly get the parts over time and put them on.

Anyone have any thoughts on that build?

Go here this man has a lot of knowledge https://www.allfordmustangs.com/forum...al-thread.html
the best bet to shave time off without BIG bucks I would say has to be suspension not increase of power but increase of power to the ground.

1996 Red Mustang GT - Sold back in 2012 after too much time and money was wasted on it.

This, definitely. Tall gears, at least 4.10's, cut as much weight as you can, and suspension. The guy who created that thread is running mid 12's with only a few bolt ons but mostly cut a bunch of weight and good suspension. I suppose it helps if you can drive, too.

And a few Explorers too... 2008 4.0 XLT 4x2, 1996 XLT 5.0 4x2, 2003 Sport Trac XLT 4.0 4x4

Full frame connectors and lower control arms. Those will be the biggest addition and gain the most traction for the best 60 foot times.
