Here's what I suggest:

Longtube Headers

Off Road X Pipe Or High Flow X Pipe

Tune(I suggest AED or LUND)

4.10 Gears

Strano Handling Package

Bmr rear LCA

ADJ. Panhard Bar

Front/Rear Sway Bars

Stickier Tires

One Piece Aluminum DS

Circle D Stall Converter

___________

And last but not least

SUPERCHARGER

OR

NITROUS

With a good tune NOS is JUST as safe if not safer than a supercharger especially since your not always using it.

Coyote2014,

Welcome and Congratulations!! There's a variety of modifications you can have have installed on your '14 to get your times down and I would recommend the following:

Magnaflow Competition Catback:

This system will help your Coyote breathe more efficiently in the higher altitudes as well as giving it a menacing growl

BBK Longtube Headers:
Long Tubes will not only help increase the sound but they're help flow exhaust gas more effectively to increase your overall horsepwoer

BBK's Off-Road X pipe:
Replacing your factory H pipe with an X pipe will help the flow even further to produce explosive gains

BAMA Sf4/X4 Tuner:
When changing Headers or Midpipes it's a great idea to have a custom tune created to make the best of what you're having installed. BAMA's tunes are going to be created specifically for your ECM.

Airaid Race Intake:
Forcing more air into your motor is going to aide in increase throttle response as well as horsepower and torque gains. Ford did a great job with their factory airbox but it's not a true cold air intake. It's definitely a must for any newer model Mustang

J&M Lower Control Arms:
The Coyotes suffer from wheel hop and traction loss pretty badly-These are going to reduce the hop as well as traction loss so you're able to get the power down

SR Lowering Springs:

Lowering springs are not only going to make the GT look better but they'll help make the car squat that much better as the center of gravity is being lowered. This will also help produce better acceleration, braking and handling.

SR Panhard Bar:
This is going to be a must to keep your rear axle centered-This is also going to work hand in hand with the other corresponding suspension mods to keep the car on the ground where it belong!

Last but not least and in my opinion the most important variable; Drag Radials-They're going to be key to make sure you're getting off the line as quickly as possible. The softer the compound the better they're going to retain heat as well as sticking to the ground!

I hope this helps-Let me know if you're to have any other questions and I'm here to help!

-Alex

All the above suggestions are great however I would probably keep the stock rearend gears especially if u plan on going with a power adder later on.

Yeah I don't know why I said 4.10s but I always do, it makes your car FEEL way faster but it's just steep gearing.
I'd go 4.10s with nitrous (because it's like no power adder most of the time) and probably keep 3.15 with a supercharger..if that makes sense.

What is your budget? What is your purpose for the car?

Assuming it is primarily a street car with occasional drag strip passes here are my recommendations.

Tune and off road mid pipe are probably your best bet for power if you are on a sub $1k budget.

For sub $2k I would say above plus aluminum drive shaft and adjustable UCA with mount to set pinion angle.

If you are going to go past the above basics, in my opinion, you should really plot out where you want to go with your car long term. If you want a power adder in the future, that will determine things like what torque converter you should get or what headers you would need (in the case of a turbo).

If you want to lower it or do suspension, I would get with BMR and see what they recommend. But since you have an auto and aren't hitting the tires nearly as hard as a stick car it shouldn't take a lot to dial it in well enough. If you did drag wheels/tires, you might not even need suspension until you get into a power adder and really start making some numbers. There are a couple cars in the 9s on stock suspension, so that says something.

Just a few things to think about. Hope it helps.

A good tune and tire and you're knocking on the door of 11's. Add an off road x-pipe and a converter and you're knocking on the door of mid to low 11's. My best so far is an 11.3 @122 mph while I still try and tweak my suspension. Keep the stock gears or move up to 3.31's if you plan on adding the Boss Intake. But no more gear.
