Im not really good on Mustangs yet, but first I would say get either new dual exhaust (flowmasters, magnaflow etc.) depends on the taste of sound you like, then I believe you can get a cold air intake, or you can get both. If anything I said is wrong, someone correct me. The cool thing is I have the same car and model as you, but its still stock, so im gonna get the Flowmaster 40's. As my first upgrade, then ill get the intake.

Take Care

just curious on how much u are wanting to spend.

You could do simple bolt ons.

UD pulley - easy install ~70 bucks
CAI - Easy Install ~50 bucks on ebay
Exhaust - Shop install ~ can be expensive depending on what you buy, be ready to spend around 300 at a shop for parts and labor.
Alum DS - around 200 bucks.

Not for HP but can increase acceleration.

Gears and T'lock - expensive.

Or, you can go

Ported Upper and lower intakes.

Or if i wanna really get into it, go for ported heads and a cam as well.
Thats really where the power is.

Good thing you used faster instead of fast. But those go hand and hand. Bolt-on's will make you car faster, but not much. To make a noticable difference you have to swap the cam and heads at a minimum. If those items are too expensive for you, you could opt for a split port swap. And since you say you have a 95, I would swap the head gaskets ASAP before they blow. Then I would go with some dual exhaust and you'll be golden until the horsepower virus hits you. I use virus, because there is no cure. You have to feed the need.
