Mods under 500$

I want to add another bolt on, I already have a tune, CAI, 410s and off road Xpipe

I have a bunch of other non horsepower adding mods, but I'm looking for something relatively cheap that's adds a few horses and shaves a tenth or 2 in the 1/4 mile

Save another couple hundred for LT's. TB or UDP'S aren't worth it yet.

LTs are not worth the money unless you have FI or you just want sound. UDPs are about your only option for a power adder under 500. Or CMDPs but thats all top end.

Get an MGW short throw shifter, best short throw shifter on the market and its only $260. It will give you better and quicker shifts at the track to reduce that time.

Long tubes yield a NA motor 15-20hp for around 700-1000 for a decent setup. UDPs free up power. Maybe 5-10 but only cost 100-150 bucks. Obviously you must have been misinformed.

I'm getting longtubes and cams but that's tax return time, Throttle body idk, but the CMDPs sound like a good idea since I already have a strong low end

TBs are the same way. Unless your a pushing a lot of air they are not worth the HP per dollar unless you are running FI.

Good choice. Just have Brenspeed rewrite the tune. This is also my next mod choice as I have the same mods as you. Minus the drag radials lol.

Also are you going with Rockers?

I think you're reading the wrong magazine buddy. You're not gonna find much good info on mustangs in Vogue. So how much power did your pullies free up when you were dynoed?

Agreed. LTs are good for that and if you have the money go for it. I wish I can afford them now but gotta wait till spring for the tax return.
Hell BaSohol, for 500 you can do the CMDPs and the UDPs.

I have some up for sale $50

Cmdp is a nice little mod for cheap... speed picks up much quicker than stock once you hit 4k rpms

Long tubes add a good amount of power... whoever said they are not worth it in comparison w pullies... I guess I see your point to a degree, but I have every bolt on and did them separately from each other... so I know what helped w what and what added and what did not... my opinion on the following bolt ons:

*cai / bama tune: was not night and day like everyone says... but it was a great acceleration mod (top end )

*cmdp: cool for added sound, acceleration was increased at higher rpms

*Tb: super cool for sound made a whistling sound every time you blip the throttle, throttle response slightly increased (depending on supporting mods or lack of can also decrese gains) and it also looks great under Hood

*Long tubes: great sound, great looking, full power band gains

*pullies: difficult install, looks good, too much risk of charging issues that out ways the performance gains

*Tune: I have 93 race bama tune, I'm not happy w it I think it's too generic and car just does not seem to perform the way it should based on other less modded cars I've been in that had dyno tunes

*borla stingers: I'm not fond of the sound however I had two chamber magnaflows prior and the borlas seem to make the car perform much much better... I guess my car was being choked up by the two chambered mufflers???

*off road mid pipe: great sound, pita come inspection time, full power band gain, although its just a slight increase in speed throughout each gear if that makes sense

*Gears: depending on what you go to and what you started with THAT is one mod I can whole heartedly say makes the car feel like a whole new car

*Tremec trans: based on previous stangs one of my favorite mods due to gear change feel and better gearing for faster acceleration

*Aluminum ds: again based on previous stangs another fav due to similar results as trans

Same goes for clutch, fly wheel

Sigh I hate typing and I know 90% of you are not going to read this... oh well

Mr.Chicago if you have $500 and are looking to increase your et I would suggest focus on other mods that help achieve your goal such as lca, uca, drag springs, drag shocks n struts, sway bar delete, light weight front sway bar delete, rear seat delete, ect hp does not equate to speed... is a combination of everything together and everything is balanced

Long tubes are way worth it!!! The pull I have in third is way worth 4.5 hours under the car!!! Granted the pull is up in the rpms, isnt that we're you are in 1/4 mile pulls?! No I don't have times but from stock I don't think pulleys can give you that pull!!

I have a question about the cmdps, I know you need a custom tune for those but I'm wondering with the diablo intune is there already tune on it I can use for the cmdps since it already has a bunch of custom tunes already on it. I really need help with that if anyone knows?

I also would love to know this, I just started looking at the cmdps and I have a diablo tuner as well. Would like not to have to pay for someone to write me a tune for this part.
