What next for my 2004 Mustang GT?

So two months ago I purchased my 2004 Mustang GT 40th anniversary edition for 8.9k. It has 74,000 miles and the previous owner installed a CAI, bbk 75mm TB, c&l plenum, larger fuel injectors, UD pulley, hydro booster, 3.73 gears, catback exhaust and was dynotuned at a local mustang specialist called panhandle performance here in panama city.

My only problem is that ive caught the bug and want to do more mods but it seems the typical bolt ons were done by the previous owner. So my question is.....where do i go from here??

Plus one finish off the exhaust. Then start the suspension/drive train. Then slap a blower on it.

+1 on the brakes. Better make sure your car can stop fast before you get to deep into making some power.

I would definitely start building the suspension up and upgrade the brakes.

Well, if you're driving too fast, wouldn't you want to do it on a familiar road at least? Not that im seriously arguing against safety, just saying I don't go acting foolish on unfamiliar asphalt.

Haha yeah I'm not about to argue it either, I've met some seriously retarded people who will try to top out their car just about anywhere. Case in point: my friend bought an '05 GT a month ago with 63k on it and he's already thrashed it enough to get a nice oil starvation issue from trying to peg his speedometer and from racing anything and everything he could find. I upgraded the brakes on my car and the first thing he said is "you could have bought cams for that much money."

Well if your dumb enough to ruin a car like that so quick, no point in investing any money!! Ugh those boy racers drive me crazy.
Just too add, i've got a buddy thay bought an 04 WRX with 75k on it about 6 months ago. Already losing his synchros and the turbo is leaking oil already. Scratches and dents all over, just a ruined car.

Yeah I hate it. Oh well, that just means they'll pay me to fix it

Re: What next for my 2004 Mustang GT?

Yup just did some investigation (got the car on a lift). My stang has BBK long tubes installed and an H-pipe. So the exhaust is good to go. Im thinking about just doing some cosmetic things. Possibly some Corbeau seats, interior kit, chrome under the hood, head/tail lights, mach 1 grill delete with chin spoiler.

I'd do smoked heads and tails, those always look great.
