Best power gain for the buck?

Wondering what would be the best purchase for my 94 GT for more power? Any suggestions? My mods include CAI, underdrive pullies, exhaust is right off the cats under the car.

Won't necessarily be a horsepower mod but a set of 4.10 gears will really wake the car up and put u in the rpm band much faster

Bolt ons gears/tuner.
Boost is about the price of all bolt ons and gets way more power

Gears will make the most drastic difference for the money. Don't waste your money tuning a stock 5.0 though, set the timing to 14 degrees advanced and run 93 octane.

After that, FULL exhaust including headers, they are trash on the 5.0 pushrod cars. Also get a set of Steeda subframes installed. Not a power mod but it'll make the whole car feel so much better and firmer. Also lowering is mandatory on these cars to get rid of the ridiculous 4x4 stance and godawful stock handling.

How much hp can you get from advancing the timing, pretty shire I asked you about this once before but I can't find it and I forgot what you said. Also will the motor run hotter. Also where I live some places only have 91 some have 93. Is it really worth it to advance the timing? What gains will I see.
