Hey ok so, i just bought the 2013 mustang v6 premium with manual transmission. I love it so far. I just want to make it go as fast as i possibly can. I didnt buy the gt because im 20 and i cant afford that right now. I also have no idea about how to work on cars but i am a quick learner and want to start working on it as soon as possible. The problem is i have no idea where to begin. What modifications should i do to my mustang? And where can i buy these parts? Where do i start?

Hello Evan, and Welcome to our Great Site here at AFM:bigthumbsup I would start with a CAI (Cold Air Intake) and a Handheld Tuner that you will need to adjust for the increase in air that will be coming into the engine. This is called an Aftermarket Tune. I suggest that you Visit our 2011+V6 Tech. and Talk Forum Pages, as there is plenty of information there..
Make sure that you check out our Year/Platform specific Forum pages so you can Post or just Read about The Stangs that our Members have that are of your Mustangs Same Year/Era
You can Navigate to the whole Site by clicking on the "Tech" Icon at the upper right hand side of this Forum page. Have Fun.
And Thank You for Joining All Ford Mustangs
:bigthumbsup

Learning curve.

The initial fear of removing something critical to your engine may seem daunting. Once you start to tear apart your car you'll find it really isn't that bad. Learning will be time consuming and I'd advise against anything in-depth if your first learning. Nothings worst than doing a big job and trying to have it done by Monday. The biggest question I think you need to ask yourself is: What do I want this car to do? Is it going to be a drag racing car? Road racing (not many do, but it';s fun), or do you want more speed with simple bolt-ons while maintaining drivability. Do you want visual appeal? I agree with Sean saying start with a tune and Cold air intake. These two mods are a easy install to start building your confidence in yourself. And like Sean stated, go through the forums and see what works, what problems you may run into, ..etc. Chances are someone already has it and then you can ask them specific questions on the part itself.
If you're wanting to do your own mods, I suggest( if you already don't) do your own tune ups. you'll learn a lot about your car (rotors, brakes, Oil,etc.) If you ever get stuck on an install just post a question, someone will answer.
