CAI, Mid pipe and catback. Gears would be the best bang for the buck though.

Welcome to the mustang community! I was in the same position as you a few years ago!

- Exhaust (Catback, Midpipe) would be best. No need for headers on a bolt-on, NA GT. Down the road you could prob look into a set of longtube headers.

- Cold Air Intake

- In the future, do you plan on staying N/A or going with a supercharger? If you plan on doing a blower, go with 3.73's if you stay N/A, Id go with a set of 4.10s.

Gears alone will wake these cars up. Will feel completly different!

Thanks guys! Um I was thinking about a Twin turbo.. I heard they where better in almost every way? But i never knew you could change gears! What do i have now? :headscratch: and if i get Force Iduc, i should get 3.73s?

you have 3.27 gears stock. supercharging is much much easier compared to twin turbo set up

3.27 Gear Ratio is stock.

If you do Forced Induction (Supercharger) go with 3.73's. If you do Nitrous or stay Naturally aspirated, go with 4.10's.

If you are honestly going turbo, keep the stock gears. If you are planning on going turbo, you will have ALOT of upgrades needed to work with the kit.

Fuel System, Suspension, Driveline, Motor, + Turbo kit.

Ooo okay lol then i wont go Turbo, thanks for warning me ahead :bigthumbsup so what do gears do? I talked to a friend who sayes he knows a lot on cars and it seems like he does... but he said gears take away power from the lower gears and only add a few MPH top end... So someone who can explain it please do! I didnt even think gears would even make a differents :laugh: my bad
