SUSPENSION! Tweak that handling. Right out of the box the mustang feels a little clumsy. Lowering and bracing will reduce body roll and thus increase your launch and acceleration around corners. A good coil-over kit and subframe braces are a good place to start.

Id get the gears/with tune first..the difference is noticable and will hold you over until you do the other mods...then lowering springs to tweek the look.

If your drag racing I would not suggest lowering I say if it's a stick car bmr upper control arm and lower control/relocation brackets if it is a automatic the the c&l racer intake it makes the most power with the sct tuner just what I suggest but do what you want
