New to my gt/forums

Hey everyone! I just recently purchased a 2006 mustang gt that is manual and currently stock. I have some ideas of things I want to do to it both for performance and some audio things as well. I am curious about what would be a good starting point though to get performance moving? I've always started my previous cars off with a k&n intake and then did an exhaust but I was curious if there were other recommendations? Also, should I chip it after the intake or wait until I do an exhaust? Thanks a lot guys and girls!

Thanks everyone! Does anyone have experience with intakes? Like I said, I've always gotten k&n but I'm looking into the roush ones, airaid, k&n, and some others. Any suggestions?

My first mod was a pair of pype bombs, completely changed the sound of my 05. Then i got an airaid intake and tune and they both woke up the car. I like the airaid intake it feels solid.

Exhaust then tuner/gears should be your first mod in my opinion. Check out YouTube for which sound you prefer.

It's the only picture I have so far but you get the idea of what it looks like. And thanks everyone, I think the k&n intake will be my first venture, still not 100% sure on that though.

Found a strut bar on sale on Americanmuscle.com plus used a coupon code so I saved roughly $60. After I install I will upload a picture of it
