What Mod first

Ok right now I have a CAI on my 02 gt and that is all. My question is do I get the SCT tuner first or some flowmaster catbacks?

Question 2: H or X pipes? I would like to have a classic sound from my car not a raspy one so im leaning more twords the H. I want to use stock headers. If I do get one of the two it will be used with flowmaster 40s, and will be put on after the catbacks due to money. Any thoughts?

Q3: If I get the SCT can I set it up so that I can use the 1 2 D to get good accel.? Also does it do much when useing the cheapest fuel?

1. Flowmasters
2. H-Pipe
3. Don't have a clue, sorry.

If it's for shorties that is what you want.

Answer to q3, I would have them adjust your shift points and increase the pressure a little. It will shift quicker and do less damage to the tranny than manually shifting.

So your saying this.... BBK Mustang Shorty H-Pipe Catted (96-04 GT, Bullitt, Mach 1 and Cobra) at AmericanMuscle - Free Shipping! will work with stock headers?

Also does the sct really gain you much when using regular fuel (87 octane)?

Does using better gas with out the tuner even do anything?

No those won't, I was mistaken when you said shorty h-pipe. I doubt the tuner will gain much horsepower but will probably give you better response. Better gas is good for the motor but without a tune won't noticeably help performance.

This is what you need for your stock manifolds.
