Hi there,
I'm new to mustang forums, but i have read some in the past and people seem to get alot of help from everyone that posts replies, so i figured i'd make my own attempt at this.
I currently have a 2004 GT with a bare stock set-up, except for a CAI and upper plenum. Right now i'm having trouble deciding what mod's i want to add on first and would like some help. Currently i'm considering getting either a tuner, Exhaust and/or 3:73 gears, but unfortunately only have the money to do them one at a time. Can someone/anyone give me some insight into what you would do as your first mod?

If you're doing them one at a time I'd say get the tuner before getting gears that way when you do get the gears you can calibrate your speedometer accordingly.

Get a 75mm throttle body, x-pipe, flowmasters, then a 3.73 gear, this will pick up your car, nicely!

Id do the exhaust and tuner first. You could do the Pypes "The Beast" X Pipe and catback kit on American Muscle for about $550. The X Pipe will make the car sound really nice with the catback, and youll definatley feel a power differance.
Pypes THE BEAST Exhaust System (99-04 GT) at AmericanMuscle.com - Free Shipping!

As far as a Tuner, Id go SCT. I have a Diablo Tuner for my GT, and my dad has an SCT for his Mach 1, the SCT is a lot better.

Then Id do gears. Could do 3.73s if you want to cruise without hitting higher RPMs (not to much of a differance than 4.10s) and if you plan on going Supercharger, Nitrous or Turbo.

I have 4.10s and there awsome, car felt 10x better and a lot faster after they were installed. I can chirp 4th gear pretty good with them.

Hopefully this helped, good luck man.
