CAIs and exhaust are always good places to begin.

Welcome to the site btw.

Are you going for looks or speed? Most here will say go for speed, but I'm going for looks I'm about done w/ mine tho, I think.

I'm assuming you have a sixer too..

Hey and welcome to the best site ever

Automatics arent bad!

Here is what I would do:

1) Tranny Cooler
2) Shift Kit
3) 3k Stall Convertor
4) Dual Exhaust w/ h pipe longtubes and your choice of muffler
5) Rear end swap for a 8.8 with 4.10 gears
6) Chip from www.americanmotorsport.com to remove speedlimiter improve shifts and shift points and remove the check engine light for your off road h pipe
7) Heads/Cam/Intakes combo from RGR on this forum
8) If you still arent happy with that put a 4.2L crank in and enjoy your 300rwhp

Dont forget your suspension as well. Lowering springs, shocks/struts, LCA, Subframe connectors will help you get traction on the track and improve your handeling on the street.

The V6 has potential

Do you know of any websites to get mustang parts from?
So far I am getting Cold Air this week.
And by Christmas I hope to have dual exhaust and a performance chip.

Also, here are some links to both SCT and Diablo, I would research any and all information provided to you before making a decision.

again what i've HEARD is that if you plan to keep getting more mods your better off getting a programmer vs. a chip because you have to send the chip in for a reburn every time.

just what ive been lead to believe
