The underdrive pulley, CAI, If the car is a few years old give it a tune up and clean the MAF with non residue electric contact cleaner. This would also be a great time to maybe even get a shift kit

Well if you have not heard of this before I am surprised. But here is the low down. If you have a 99+ mustang and get 3.73 or 4.10 gears the speedo can only be corrected by either a Chip or Speed cal device. On Mustangs up to 98 you only needed to change a tiny plastic speedo gear. On 99+ the computer controls the speed corrections

If you need anymore info please feel free to ask. I will not steer you wrong

99+ 5 spd's can get a speedcal for 85$. (i'm on my third set of different sized tires now and am glad because you can recalibrate it to whatever tires, gears, etc. you have more than once)
