2002 V6 3.8L Mustang (White)

I've recently purchased a mustang, and had about $1500 left over. I have already purchased a touch screen radio
, modern Billet Black Hood Pin, 10in racing stripes, rocker stripes, "Mustang," lettering, quarter window cover, and a cold air intake. My question is, which of these can be self installed, and how much would it cost to install the others?

You should be fine with installing everything. Although i would suggest having a shop install the stripes. They can be very time consuming, and turn into a big pain in the ***. A more common thing to do is to get a canned tune. Doesn't really give huge performance gains, but will give a more responsive throttle and a it'll make it run nicer. That'll literally take 10 minutes to upload.

I've done one head unit install on my sisters saturn. Never really messed around on the mustang, but the saturn was a pretty straight forward install. If you're unsure of yourself, for a few bucks you can find someone who knows how to do it.

You can get a set of lowering springs to drop it between 1.5 and 2 inches. Put on a Mach1 Style Chin spoiler. A Mach1 Grill delete, a shorty antenna, and some window tint. Those mods will completely change your car.

Would lowering it hurt the tires? As far as wearing them down sooner..

It can, if you do not have the car aligned after installing the springs. But if it is realigned by a shop afterwards, then no excess wear will happen.

So would it be smart to do that when an alligment is needed anyways?

Is the ride smoother by lowering it? Or rougher?

The ride will always get rougher. Mine are SR springs and they are pretty rough. However the stock ride is a bit soft and lowering springs make it firm.
