New to the mustang world

Hello everyone, I have recently just bought myself a 2005 mustang gt5 speed. It has about 80k miles and it's completely bone stock. I want to start to build it, and do some passes on a track. I know I want to begin with exhaust, I love the noise the exhaust has stock but I need it to be louder. Any suggestions on exhaust? H pipe, Y pipe? And overall any other bolt ons that could show slight improvement for a cheap price to begin with. Any advice could always help and would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Welcome.. Exhaust I always loved the h pipe with some flow master 40s.. Do tha cold air intake and a tuner and you'll see some gains

Are you doing Full Exhaust or just Cat Back? H pipe will give you more of a Classic Sound, X pipe will give you a little more Torque at Higher RPMs. Full Exhaust does mean getting Headers: Long Tube or Shorty's.

I'm thinking I just wanna keep the heads stock for now and just get exhaust from the cat back, I would love to have a classic sound that's loud, but the extra torque could always be useful. Eventually I want to get shorty headers but that's down the road

Be careful in how you word things. Head Work and Headers are two completely different things and subject. Be aware that Shorty Headers are not that much of a difference than the Stock Header, just a little bit. The Mid-Pipe and Exhaust will make the most difference. And Long Tube Headers, even though that's what I have, you won't really notice the gain or difference until you are at High RPMs. Mufflers are basically, which sound you like the Best. And remember Most Exhaust Company's have multiple models of Mufflers, not just one model. So don't walk into a Shop saying: "I want a Flow master muffler", there is different ones, if you do that, you're telling the guy to pick one out(whatever he wants) for you.

Best bang for your buck mods in all three categories:

Performance - custom tune + SCT X4 handheld tuner (huge difference). I'd probably choose a Ford Racing CAI after that.

Exhaust - Unless you're going FI in the future, skip a cat-back. Axle-backs will be just fine (factory mufflers are heavy and quiet).

Aesthetics - shorty antenna, tail light sequencer kit (the 1-2-3 turn signals the 2010s+ have), painted mirror covers. The antennas are super tall and ugly stock, and the last two are small details that really round the car together. All super cheap.

Solid list. If you can swing it I would recommend the gen 5 talights which have the built in seauintials.

^Ah, I forget about those nice new lights. Those could be an option to. I usually prefer keeping the stock look over bastardizing (like putting 2013 tails on a 2011 etc.) but those Raxiom ones are super hard to pass up.

My boss is taking his 15 to a local place so I'm kind if waiting to see how they do. 05s scratch tint pretty easily from what I hear though

When you roll Windows up and down. Something about not having a true weather strip. It is supposedly a somewhat hard plastic. My window with no tint has marks from rolling it up and down
