need advice

Im thinking of modding out my Mustang but what should i start with? i heard headers and air intakes make you loose power because they have it so finely tuned or something. I have a 3.9 liter 04 V6.

chip isn't worth your time unless you've heavily modded.

me for example: with my supercharger i'm getting a custom-tuned SCT chip so my blower will function properly.

You need a chip if you have an auto...unless you want your speedo to be off. That is if you put in gears.

do exhaust, its easy, it gives you looks as well as sound, and a little more pep... after you get that them come back and we can help you farther.

look for some GT take offs, decide if you want a GT rear bumper or to keep the oem if you have a 99 up... if you want the bumper with cut outs get the 99+ gt take off, else try to fidn a pre 99 gt since the tips are far nicer if you dont have the little cut outs, since more of the tip wills how.
