Need advice!!

Hey everyone, I have a 2007 mustang gt. Currently it has a cai, 62mm throttle body, shorty headers with an off road x-pipe exhaust, stage 2 clutch, slotted and drilled rotors, and I have a tuner and have tuned her. Does anyone have any suggestions for what else I could do to her for performance upgrades that won't totally drain my bank account? My ultimate goal is to turbocharge her, but is there anything relatively inexpensive I could do to her for some added horsepower?

What would be the best nitrous set up to get? And would I need to mod anything else to do it? And I'm thinking about buying the intake manifold

Get the plate kit from nitrous express. A window switch, purge, bottle heater and a good tune

How much do you think the kit will cost? And all of my friends keep sayin I'm gonna mess up my engine. Is slotted and drilled rotors all I need to be able to support the extra pressure?

$1,000-1,200 for kit. Window switch. Bottle heater purge. Then say $400-500 for. Tune. Ad long as you get a good tune and just run a 100 shot you will be fine

Your stock breaks will be fine bud.

I would do cams before anything else at this point. A better set of cams would unlock a bit more power and they aren't too expensive.

Not true. Nitrous would be the best bet. If he did go cams he would have to spend more money later on. If he goes turbo like he said.

Hr said he wanted a turbo. SO later on he would have to pull whatever cams he did to go turbo. SO would cost more money. Go nitrous. To many people who do NOT have a clue on what they are talking about

Not really true!.. Know a few guys that have Stage 2Cams from Comp that are also FI!.. And I'm not talking about the cams made specifically for turbos etc!.. Yes if your looking to build a Track Machine, then you'll need the other cams!.. But if your looking for something that is treatable then no!.. Been researching it myself as I was going to add Cams this time around but decided not too!.. I'm also planning a Turbo in the near future!..

Hey buddy. A NA CAM will cause you to loose power with a turbo and so will a blower CAM. SO do some more research.

Bc of the exhaust duration and overlap on a NA CAM or blower CAM will not be up to specs for a turbo aplication. Never said anything about stock cam did i?

Dont be max bc your shot is slow hagan

Also, this is a little off topic, but my upholstery on my doors is starting to come off at the bottom. What is the best way to reattach it? I bought some fabric glue and some rubber paste but I wanted to check with y'all before I tried anything

I believe the ford racing intake manifold comes with the delete plates built in.
