New Mustang Owner

Hello Everyone,

I recently purchased my first mustang. 2008 GT. I use this car as a daily driver but want to make it a lot more fun to drive. I have looked around at some other sites but I am not sure where to begin and what all would I should add. I have looked at throttle bodies, CAI, gears, shifters, programmers, and exhaust options to start.

What I would like to ask of you guys is what products would you use and what products work well together. What gains should I expect with the setups. Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Depends on what you wanna do; NA, nitrous, or FI. Then take it from there. For starters, look at shifters, axel back exhaust, CAIs, and an SCT tuner. Those are good entry level mods. Gears are good too.

Welcome! Post pics of ur stang! I always think the very first mod should be cat/axle back exhaust. Get ur stang sounding good and even pick up a slight bit of power from it. Then from there you can go anywhere. Like ppl have listed cai, tuner, throttle body/plenum, shifter, gears, mid pipe x or h, headers. Also you can do cosmetics things like lowering, rims, grilles, tinted head/tail lights. The possibilities are endless but I think those are some good starting places.
