Welcome. The first/must haves are up to you. It depends whether you want looks or sound/performance. Mach 1 chin spoiler is a must and exhaust. Those would be my first two then it's up to after that. Bu thebt things like mid pipe, tuner, cai, headers, lowering kits would be my next choice. I just purchased a new mustang a few months back and so far I bought exhaust, chin spoiler, black mustang lettering, antenna, windows tinted and a few other small cosmetic things. In the next month or two I plan to buy cai, tuner and mid pipe.

The very first performance wise should be a tuner!.. That way the other mods you get and can adjust your tune accordingly so you can get the max out of those mods!.. Also a Haynes or Chiltons manual for when things break!.. And they will!.. Everything breaks at one point or another!.. Lol. Appearance wise I went with the Mach1 Chin and tinted windows!.. Also rocker panel strips and a few other little details!.. Lol

Just Remember, most companie have more than one MODEL muffler, Flowmaster has a couple models, as well as Magnaflow and different models give off different sounds, Just describe to the Brand you choose, what style Sound you want on your car. Sounds vary: AGGRESSIVE, LOW/DEEP, MEDIUM, ETC. I went with the Aggressive Tone MagnaFlow, and my wife tells me that it's the Loudest one in the neighborhood. Now I know FlowMasters are very loud, but like I said they have a variety of models. Let me know which one you deside to go with. Don't forget about the "OffRoad/OnRoad" setup, which means if it has CATS or not, If not, you will need a Tuner, get some brand CAI Intake also. I went with GEARS Instead of any kind of shifter, and yes they have shifters for Automatics too.

Flowmaster super 44's have a pretty mean sound to them. I've heard an off road x-pipe and super 44 combo and it sounds pretty mean. Most people don't have a problem hearing me from a couple blocks away with the factory h-pipe and super 44's.
