Hey guys i gotta a question for you guys. I just got me a set of 17' chrome bullits for my mustang. The wheels w/ tires are 13 lbs. heavier than my other 16' rims w tires. Problem is that they are slowing me down a little bit. My car looks incredible but i want it faster. What would be the quickest way but keep in mind i want it naturally aspired no supercharger yet but that is possible in the future. My car is 2001 v6 mustang auto, K&N FIPKII, True dual exaust... and thats it besides visual mods tinted windows, bumber inserts, etc blah blah... Thanks 4 the help guys

See, here's the thing.

If you WERE to go SC, you'd want to leave the gears to around 3.27.

So that leves you with 2 options outside of the gear.

You can lighten up the rotational mass by going to 2-piece rotors at the rear (200), an aluminum or carbon fiber driveshaft (250 al-500 cf), and an aluminum flywheel (all of which will help you out a bunch, no matter your engine combination)

Or you can throw in 1.8RRs, and port and polish your intake manifold, and maybe swap out the cam and do a port/polish (without the 1.8 roller rockers) for around the same kind of money.

you'd probably BE faster with the 1st scenario, you'd FEEL faster, for sure with the second.

If you are for sure you're not going to go SC, then swap out the gears and you may have money for another item above.
