You've got a nice list of mods. How about some more suspension mods? Subframe connectors, control arms, sway bars and strut tower braces would help tighten up that handling and reduce body roll.

Aluminum drive shaft is one of the most under rated most powerful mods on a s197... people will argue... but the people who argue do not have one

Franco09GT,

It sounds like you already have a pretty nasty 09' & only have a few goodies left before going Supercharger or Turbo LOL! I would recommend a set of gears next, that will be your best bang for the buck. Ford Racing Ring and Pinion Gears are perfect for street, road, or race use. They'll help with acceleration & torque, which will get you off the line a lot harder!

Suspension is definitely important, especially for a streetable Stang. Just lowering your Mustangs center of gravity, will reduce squat during acceleration, body roll in the corners, and excessive nose-dive under hard braking. Any of our springs will feature more control then the stock factory springs, but are still comfortable enough for daily driving and occasional track use. We actually just installed all of these parts on our 07' GT project car, Check it out:

2005-2009 Mustang GT Bolt-On Build-Up - YouTube

These are just a few quick recommendations, let me know if you have any questions! Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266. I can also have one of them call you directly.

I agree with Silversky545, an aluminum driveshaft is a big help when it comes to drivetrain power loss, let alone the safety of having a stronger driveshaft. Gear's drastically help out acceleration too, and will go along great with your FRPP hot rod cams! It's easily one of the best "bang for buck" mods out there.

Franco09GT,

You already have a great list of mods to begin with. Knowing what your budget and power goals are, will depend on what I suggest next. If you're looking for even more power, LT's and some forced induction is the next big step (although you'll need a new mid-pipe). Give us a little more detail about what you're looking for out of your 3v. Then I'll be able to easily point you in the right direction!

I really wanna get LT's to help my engine breath out more but that's outta my price range. I really want 4.10's but I'm leaving off to college really soon & I kinda don't wanna be driving 70 doing 2500rpm you know.

I have a lowered 07 GT. CAI, BBK TB, Detroit Rocker cams, LT's with O/R H and violators, dyno tune and 4.10's. Driving from FT Bragg NC to Orlando Fl I got 23.5 MPG. That was cruising just over 70 MPH. Just so you know what you would be getting.

Franco09GT,

I agree LT's would be a huge benefit for your 3v engine. Especially with the FRPP cams and a revised Bama tune. Leave the 4.10s until after you're done school or go with a lower gear like 3:73s for a lower rpm at 70.

Let me know if there's anything I can help with!

I did not feel much improvement w long tubes... although I'm using a sub par tune from an online company... they may or may not be in this thread... dyno is well worth the money IMO

Thank you for your useless input. Oh yeah, that's right, nobody cares what you think. If you don't like the thread, don't post.

Re: Next mod?

Lt's won't do that much, you have spent money on your x-pipe and if you go FI ( turbo ) you will not need them. For now i would get a good shock and sway bar kit. and LCA's ( only get them with poly bushings). You said LT's were out of your price range, so just about all the good HP upgrades are all so out of your price range. If you can swing it , a 1 piece ALU DS is a great upgrade.
