You got power, add some suspension mods:

1. Rear lower control arms
2. Front urethane bushings on A arms
3. CC Plates

Oh..and also exhaust, you need compensate for all that extra air going in.

also if your gears are stock, then bump them up a little, throw on some sticky tires and your set.

96 fobra. pi cams, pi intake, 4.10s, pro 5.0, and magnaflow.
the winner isn't the one with the fastest car, but the one who refuses to lose.

Automatic or manual?

And is that really the only mods you have?

Sub-frame connectors and a pro-charger?

2001 GT Mustang

Cheers!

I agree on the suspension mods, steeper gears sticky tires and drag launch suspension will make a HUGE difference gettin off the line and lowering your 1/4 times, the stock 2011 5.0 is making 360hp to the wheels and with just tires and suspension mods is able to run low 12's so like it was said above you have the power just focus on traction and weight reduction like an aluminum driveshaft maybe some other interior things and maybe later down the line do more for power, but i also agree on the exhaust that should go hand in hand with a supercharger

1997 with an '01 4.6 GT swap - Vortech V2/SQ Supercharger 10psi, BBK Shorty Headers, O/R X-pipe, Flowmasters out the back, Cold air intake, 3.73 Rear end gears, T-Rex high pressure fuel pump, 78mm BBK throttle-body, Rear end tubular steel control arms, Drag launch Suspension, MSD ignition and 275/40R/17 NTO5 Drag Radials on back.

Xbox Live Gamertag is DHG DrizzyMAN so hit me up :shiny:

5-speed and those are the only mods.

Thank you everyone for your help, the next step will be long tube headers, catted H-pipe, and 3.73 gears.......... stage three will be shocks & struts and lowering springs. Thanks again !!:kooky:

with a boosted application long tube headers, throttle body, and plenum will net you bigger gains than a n/a gt
