Depends what you sre going for. Gears, shifter if 5 speed, exhaust/intake, all the way to power adders. Cobra brakes were one of the best mods ive done to mine imo

Gotta agree with Blue on this one, there are countless posts on what good mods are for the new edges. Do a search and read up on it.

Guys, here at ME we try not to be the 'do a search' crowd. This way the OP gets info specific to their questions, and will have their own thread about their own car and other members threads don't get hijacked.
Please just offer your two cents or maybe a link. Sometimes ppl need help finding or searching out threads. This is also the way the powers that be feel about the subject.

If your going to ask this type of question you need to let people know how much you want to spend, what do you want to do with your car (street, strip...) and do you plan on doing the work yourself or taking it to a shop?

If the 99-04 is what you like and what you want then keep looking and you'll find one that's in your price range!!... The first thing is to know what you want and don't settle for less!.. It just might take a little more time to get to where you want but you'll be alot happier in the end!..

Ya I should have searched a bit more before I settled on my car!.. I probably would have paid less or gotten some thing a bit better than what I did!.. Lol. Don't get me wrong because I do love my car!.. Case in point!.. A buddy of mine bought a '04 Saleen and paid less for it than I paid for my car!.. Lol. And the pervious owner of his car bought it new and put about another 10,000 in mods in it!!!....

Try to find a windsor. Modified's are junk. The 400m and the 351m are praised by some hated by most. Mainly cause they stop oiling. The oil returns are to small and unless you want to drill those out your "m" won't last long.
