None.
You don't need one and it would provide only minimal if any benefits.
Do gears instead.

Unmodded you say? First mods I always do are CAI (cold air intake), catback exhaust, and a short shifter. You'll pick up a few hp from the cai and exhaust (plus itll sound much better!) and the short throw will make driving it a much better experience imo

I agree. And you can also bump up your timing a few degrees.up to 14 but you may need to run premium fuel.

Yes, but yours is a 94-95 and the ECU's are a bit cranky on those to begin with.

Not to my way of thinking I didn't.
I had to get rid of it to preserve my sanity.
Sorry to say since it is a Mustang, but I hated that car.
I loved the way it rode and handled, but that was about it.
It gave me nothing but trouble the entire time I owned it.
I replaced every sensor, relay, tune up parts, fuel pump, exhaust, intake gaskets, fuel injectors, ECU,...........etc., etc.... and it would still miss, cut out, sputter, stumble and D. All of the above.
I cleaned, checked and replaced everything that could be cleaned, checked or replaced.
Finally well over $1.5k later I conceded defeat and banished it from my ownership.
I was on the verge of ripping out the newer ECU and replacing it with a 89-93 system when I sold it.
Note I did inform the buyer of it's issues and he still has it and its issues today along with a brand new 331 in the engine bay.
It is currently scheduled for the ECU transplant.

Pulling EFI for a carb sounds a lot more like "giving up and stepping down" to me...

I didn't really give up, step down or get away from the problem and I will be helping resolve its issues because my youngest brother bought the car.

You got that right for sure. The 94-95 ECU's are a pain to work with and going carb solves a whole host of problems you would have with an engine like that.

Re: Tuner chip

Unless you are planning some significant modifications the CAI won't be a major increase in anything but the looks.

Remove the air silencer (Free) and put in a decent filter (You should do that anyway).

As previously stated gears will increase 1/4 time more than anything else
