Well first what are your plans for the car? Performance and styling wise! Then start buying parts that will get you to your end result for the car. In the past I would always right up a parts list with pricing for what I wanted my car to preform and look like and start buying from that list a little at a time.

I would go with the CAI, AM has some great prices for CAI's got there 80 dollar one on my 94gt and it looks great and performs the same as the name brand intakes it's just cheaper cause you are not paying for a name!! If you can find one cheap you can afford that and pulleys!!

Subframe connectors. Yep it's not horsepower but it will stiffen the hell out of the car. Have them welded in. IMO cai's are worthless. You will be in the same boat with air silencer removed and a k&n installed.

Sleeping has the right idea about suspension! Stiffing that pony up will greatly improve handling and reduce body roll. Springs, brace bars, subframe connectors and control arms will greatly revive the nimbleness of your stang!

I made my own cai and there's an automatic difference. You can tell it's not running as hard

Re: Money to blow

The factory air intake is already a CAI. Just remove the air silencer from the inner fender and install a quality filter. Gears are the best upgrade if you have someone to install them, or, find an '87/'88 Turbo Coupe rear. Disc breaks, either 3.55 or 3.73 gears,8.8 with traction Lock. Those can be had for $200 or less. You'll gain no power, but you'll think you did, and you'll feel the difference immediately.

I think the 3.73 gears will be the first upgrade on my car.

Where is the best place to find 373s?? And I removed the thing with the ball in in, instead of just removing the ball then ran a new tube down through the fender with a filter on the end down on the end of the 28in pipe. Idk about y'all but I can tell a difference. Next I want gears!! If all I hear is true I should own with them.
