Power adder

Ok Mustang Lovers I need some advice. I currently have an 05 Mustang GT with a stock 4.6 V8 that has 114,000 miles on it. I have installed a BBK cold air intake, an X pipe and a set of Magna Flow mufflers. I'd like to add more horsepower, but not jeopardize the engine. Currently the engine does not burn any oil, and I've lowered the car about an inch and have put a set of 18X10's in the rear and 18X9's in the front. Finally my tranny was FUBAR and replaced it with a new stock 5 Speed Automatic. Any suggestions would be gratefully accepted. Thanx

Tuner is a nice up grade, and same with gears tho the gears don't add power they make the biggest difference in acceleration

Go with a set of ford racing hot rod cams. They add good power and they just sound awesome

+1 on Bashol's comment, when you get the car tuned you'll see the real potential of any upgrades you put in. Tuners cost about 360 or so and even less with the forum discount and when you order from American Muscle you get enrolled in their free tunes for life so basically anytime you make a change to the car you can send in for a new tune. You can also find tuners people are selling but always make sure they're unlocked or unmarried.
