You could move on to ignition mods, or induction mods like CAI, throttle body.. After your next mods I'd suggest some sort of chip. There are no handhelds for your car but there are a few options depending on wants, needs and budget.

Re: Some basic Mods?

im thinking intake manifolds upper and lower, then throttle body of course the CAI with the manifolds. im looking at an explorer intake and getting the CAI once i get back from afghanistan. I'll be honest i dont know really anything about 5.0's i used to have a 04 cobra and also a 04 40th gt but my first divorse took them to the bank....my wife now is all for my mustang so im good

Do the HCI (Heads, Cam & Intake) if you can swing it. One of the biggest restrictions are the stock heads. There is an article on the net somewhere, where they changed the heads on a mild 5.0 to the AFR 165's and picked up 100 HP.

Then save up your pennies and get an AFM PMS for tuning. Save you the hassles of sending a chip back everytime you change something and there are a lot more tuning options to boot.

+1 had that tuner in mind when I made my post. Only thing I would add is an upgrade to the MAF, whether you buy one or use one off a new edge 4.6, with those mods I think it'll will be worth it.

For the MAF upgrade, I prefer the ABACO MAF for its ultimate tunability.
