What mods should i do?

I have a 2007 gt, i only have a cold air intake, pypes violators mufflers, and a throttle body spacer so far, and as far as exterior i have quarter window louvers, gt500 spoiler, and a hood scoop. I just wanted to get others opinions on what else they would do to their car. Thanks in advance.

Everybody is different on here so there really isn't an answer to that question. Some guys are more subtle with appearance mods even going to the extent of removing badges keep it plain. Some guys like a little more attention grabbing mods like lights or out of the box stripes or decals ...

Really you gotta know what's true to you and what you had in envisioned for your Stang, cuz there are a few that would love to control you and make as many clones as they can ... Lol

Just do you man, if you like it be proud of it and stand by your decision it that's simple...

I try to do one upgrade a month be it new floor mats, brushed aluminum interior parts, or whatever. I tend to go with what's needed. My headlights were all scratched and useless so that was my latest upgrade. At least then I feel like the purchases are justified!

Are you looking for more of an appearance or performance? You could lower it and get rid of the gap between tire and wheel well!

Agreed. Drop it like it's hot. Do something to get it low. Eibach and BMR. Thays what's on mine. New srings, upper and lower control arms and adjustable pan hard bar. Poof, it'll look like a different car.

Performance wise -

Longtubes , Mid-pipe, Catback
K&N drop in , unless you find a cheap deal on a aftermarket intake duct. Tubing.
4:10 Gears
Custom tune
Air charge delete
Some hot rod camshafts

Springs , Struts , shocks
( H&R coils , Tokico Struts /Shocks )
Lower control arms , Upper arms ( TeamZ or UPR )

Hmmm axle back just runs from the axle and back , catback runs from the actual cat to the back ( longer piping , probably better sounding )

FYI.....throttle body spacer does zippo

2 things you really need to decide early on so you don't end up doing double purchases and/or taking items off down the road. 1) NA or FI 2) Drag or road rally setup

Since you already have CAI you should get a tune to adjust for the increase air flow. I'd finish the cycle and get Long Tubes (Kooks, American Racing), X-pipe & cat delete (or highflow cat).

If your staying NA get an UDP (Steeda) and charge motion delete plate (Steeda) and NA specifi cam - do alot of reading, some give more sound/lope than gains (Comp Cam's, FRPP, Breenspeed Detroit rocker). Skip any Intake Manifold and throttle body upgrades since beyond looking good (they do !) they give very little gains.

Oh i thought throttle bodies were pretty solid haha, and im not sure if you know the solution or not but when i push down on the gas pedal theres dead spot in the gas pedal so it doesnt actually accelerate until i push it down where as in my previous mustang the car would accelerate once i pushed down the pedal.
