Headers,upper lower explorer intake, maf,throttle body, aluminum driveshaft, under drive pulleys..but most of all biggest difference you'll get for the cost will be 3:73 gears. If you can get ahold of some aluminum heads in your price range you should Definitly do that when you do the intake.

Re: looking to upgrade

If those are for real ASC McLaren cars I wouldn't touch them. They will be worth more stock than modified.

Any upgrade would be a downgrade that most of us do on here. Keep it stock

1987mustanglx50,

That's an incredible collection you have! Honestly, I wouldn't touch the ASC Mclaren LX's. Keep those bad boys factory!

Now for any other regular Fox body 5.0s, my first vote is for gears and SR Performance sub-frame connectors to prevent body twist. You'll see a huge improvement in traction and quick acceleration!

Let me know if there's anything I can help with!

Shane
