2006 4.0 new owner!

Hey guys and gals, I just joined. I have a V6 (coming from a 4 cyl Fusion it's a major upgrade!) and I want to know what mods y'all recommend to do first. I was leaning towards CAI and a tune. Here's my ride

It has the true dual exhaust already in place. I believe it's the Ford Racing package. Previous owner saved me close to $7-800!

I AM on a budget too, and they beat the livin daylights outta the rims, so I may have to buy a set first simply because they're close to trash. They have dents and actual cuts in them in a couple places so I'm worried about that. That alone is close to $500

I realistically need to stay as close to $400 as I can. Being in college sucks. Especially with no financial help or support. But everyone's been there...

Looks like it already got some body work also, that's a great looking Stang you got. Normally I don't like yellow cars but yours does it nicely.

Thanks! That's what attracted me to it! She's beautiful haha a little paint problem from being in the sun, but I can't complain. Hearing her scream is all I need

Would you recommend first doing the wheels? I honestly don't know how bad they are but they're awful. I like the look of them, but they're scratched, cut, and dented all over. Thoughts? I want performance over looks any day, but not when I have new eagle gt tires on...

Get a staggered set up, looks great and gives you more tire in the rear for better traction.
