help on making my 2000 GT faster

Hey gang, Im a newbie on here so hiya! Let me start off by saying ive had a 65, 89 5.0, 92 5.0, 91 5.0 all mustangs and now i just picked up a 2000 GT. Ive never did any mods to the other stangs but I really want to make this one fly. Its an automatic and this is what it has already that was previously installed. BBK shift kit, Full SLP exhaust, Throttle body, Steeda underdrive pulley, BBK trans cooler, 4:10 racing gears, tuned by bamer tuner. So it already moves..what do you think the next thing i can do? aside from NOS or a supercharger. Thanks!

The first thing I would do is add subframe connectors and focus on the suspension.

Higher stall speed torque converter. Have heard from many with auto's that this is basically required in order to make the rearend gears worthwhile.

Get a tuner.

Above suggestion on subframe connectors and in general suspension stuff is spot on. Lower control arms for the rear are a must, and if your car is still factory equipped for crossing small streams and other misc floodwaters then you may want to think about lowering it a little.

All the usual bolt-on's /200 I6, C4

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

When I had my 04 gt auto I had Catback, X pipe with cats, intake, steeda pulleys and a nitrous tune (pulls timing) went 13.9 in 90 degree weather. On the bottle 12.7 12.8.

With those mods in a manual it should be a little quicker depending on where you live.

Sounds like a pretty good setup so far. +1 on the Subframe connectors, just had some Maximum Motorsports full length installed on mine and made the car more comfortable to drive as well as better at handling. +1 on the Lower Control arms as well. A panhard bar would also be a good investment for your rear end.

C&L CAI, 80mm MAF, TrickFlow 75mm throttle body, TrickFlow Upper intake plenum, Underdrive pullies, BBK catted X-pipe, 4.10 gears, limited slip diff with carbon fiber discs, moser 31 spline axles. MM FLSFCs, Screaming demon coil packs, Ford Racing 9mm wires, SR lowering springs, 95 cobra R rims, black, machined lip 18X9's in front, 18X10's in rear, Bullitt style pedals, SVE race seats.
