Best Bolt-Ons for HP

I have an 02 GT with an o/r x-pipe with flowmaster 40's, K&N CAI, 78mm throttle body, and a Bama tuner. I'm wondering what the next mod I should get is. Any suggestions?

Personally , I would start doing some suspension/brake upgrades before adding much more power. Subframe connectors, springs, shocks/struts, camber plates, hawk HPS pads, etc. Our cars come with decent power, but the suspension needs to be upgraded to make full use of it.

Re: Best Bolt-Ons for HP

you may not believe it but suspension is an EXTREMELY important part in terms of getting from point A to B the fastest. It can make such a huge difference overall, but mostly at the track.

I think next would be gears and some lower control arms with poly bushings. This will help transfer all of the new power to the ground. A good set of Ford Racing 3.73's or 4.10's and a non-adjustable (fixed) lower control arms set would be a huge increase. Not only would you notice less wheel hop, but the gears are an instant pick-up in acceleration.
