New mustang

Hey everyone. I am new to the whole mustang club. I was wondering what modifications to my car I should focus on first? The car is a daily driver for the summer and its a 2008 mustang gt/cs. I am looking for some more speed and really don't have the funds right now to supercharge it. The car has the 3.55:1 gears, h-pipes, and nice wheels. Any help would be great??????

Get a Cold Air Intake and a tune, you should see about 30 HP and TQ from that... Then you could get a new throttle body, underdrive pullies. Is your car a manual or auto?

Expect 20, 30 is high.
Just say 30 but you won't actually gain that.

Yea, 30 is what they say you should get but it's always a little lower.

And all cars do react differently to mods so it all depends

Other than Cai/tune,nice sounding exaust. Leave the car alone. Just enjoy the fruits of your labor. When it comes to HP , some is never enough and the more you mod the more risk you take. Some of us have to learn the hard way tho, so next would be throw some headers an x/pipe on followed by gears.

If you don't want a bunch of HP look at exterior cosmetics
