Best mods for 08 gt

As some of you might now I just upgraded to an 08 gt from a 98 gt. The car is stock besides wheels, lowering springs, and a magnaflow axle back exhaust. What are some opinions on the best mods for these years? The car is unfortunately an automatic so no short shifter.

I echo getting a tuner. Really woke the car up. I also have an automatic and the tuner added to the shift firmness nicely.

Also it is a mod that keeps on giving as you continue to add more bolt ons.

Good luck!

Agree. I've had Bama send me 5-6 updated tunes already. Pretty sweet.

Thanks for all the input. My ideas are cai, x pipe, keep the magnaflow and tune it. I still have my hand held sct from American muscle I just have to pay $150 for it to be changed to another car. But I plan on 373s sometime soon too. What about the frpp intake manifold? I had an 07 gt before this car and it had it with Detroit rocker cams. I plan on FI in about 6 months after I get new wheels

Those quarter mikes are important! But really, lower control arms are a good mod.
