What do you currently have done? When you say cheap ... what is cheap from a budget standpoint?

Cheapest wasnt the best term but bang for your buck. CAI, TB spacer, axelback. I know the spacer doesnt do much.

I got it. Getting ready to pull the plug on VMP 500 horse kit. With exhaust I've seen 430+rwhp, on that tiny M90. But if you go supercharger get a TVS or a centrifugal.


Pick your poison.

There is no such thing as BEST/CHEAPEST when your talking about adding horsepower on a Mustang. Best/Expensive = MUSTANG.

You have to decide on what your going to do with your car. You don't have to set it up to run on the streets or strip. Lowered with some horsepower Will make you very happy at a moderate price.

Decide is this a Daily driver, Toy for the weekend, shows only....Good Luck.
