Finally got my mustang

This is my 2004 gt 5 spd my dad bought it brand new in 04. It now has 182,000 miles on it. And it's still as much fun as it was the day he bought it. July 14 th was my birthday and he gave it to me. since I have already put a new head unit and a hurst shifter knob. If anyone has any suggestions for the car let me hear it. Thanks for reading.

Horse power wise? I'm not too sure I got one for my car and I can tell, the much smoother airflow does make a noticeable difference I think. Also provides a nice sound improvement wise. I would recommend one if your looking for tons of horsepower forced air induction is going to be your best bet. If your looking for something cheap and beneficial get air intake and a tune.

Yeah my father drove 100+ miles a day to go to work so he got a fun car to do it in, an it made the commute much shorter lol, and I'll prob do a cold air intake but would I need a tune with that or would it be fine stock?

On the new edge cold air intakes dont do much for our cars. I would rather put 300 bucks into gears or exhaust.

You may lose like 1 or 2 mpg. But aint nothing major to worry about. Get like 3.90 gears and you will be good.
