bolt ons for more power

I'm new in this forum, got a 2008 gt. I'm looking to give it some more horses and torque. Any suggestions on bolt ons and if the mods will need tuning ??? Thanks

There's a whole thread on beginner bolt ons. I always suggest starting off with full exhaust or gears

Gears will be a BIG difference if you go up to say 4.10s (do you have an auto or 5speed?)

I agree with 610swolf. My first mods were an Airaid cold air intake, 40 series flowmasters and a Bama tuner. Those made it a totally new car. Then window tint, tires & wheels and suspension and so on and so forth.

I came in super late to the intake and tuner, i just got mine and it makes a world of difference. I see why people recommend doing it first haha. Also OP when you get your tuner either if you but it from American Muscle or buy a second hand UNLOCKED/UNMARRIED one you can enroll in American Muscles free tunes for life. So basically whenever you make another change to the car you can send them a request to alter your tunes to fit your new upgrades.

Really? You have gears? I have headers sitting right next to me waiting to get put on! I hope they help a lot

Under drive pullies honestly was a good upgrade, I pick up 1.5mph in the 1/4 mile and I pull harder against my buddy top end

Its a 5 speed manual. Them 4.10's sound tempting. .. so far for this month I bought cold air intake from roush, headers from ford racing (shorties) and magnaflow mufflers, didn't have enough money for full exhaust system. But thats it so far, I guess my next step is the tunner since a lot of you recommended that. Thanks a lot everyone and let me know what you think...

A friend just told me he has a 62 mm ford racing throttle body for sale, never used it...would that be a good buy if I get it ? I read a lot of good and bads about this item.

Not really gonna do much for you at this point. TBs are best as a last mod kinda thing.

I started with exhaust first but I think if I could do it over again I'd go ahead and get my car lowered first

I went CAI, cams and full exhaust. Knowing now what I didn't know then I might have gotten the brenspeed cams for my future build instead of having to replace my FRPP cams with then.

I would definitely get a tuner next. A tuner will help you get more out of what you have already put on it.
