But bbk throttle body , bbk cold air intake , is on the way and getting a new exhaust system next week which will be a x pipe with magnaflow mufflers thanks!! 👽hahah oh ya and need this to show all these vtec lovers what American muscle is about !!!!

Underdrive pulleys free up some HP from the pulley system by making the crank pulley small diameter to spin more rotations. If your going to get these only get the steeda brand they are the only true ones out there all others are cheap mock ups and can hurt the internals after a while.

They are called a "piggyback" style and are not meant for daily use it could make your crankshaft unbalanced. Do some searching on google and there is lots of info on it. I use to have bbk's on my 01GT and a performance shop said to get it off of there if I drive a lot.

Yep, you don't have to listen to me though, but if a shop that messes with mustangs all day and that's all they know I would listen to them. The shop is called Brenspeed you can email them and ask they respond really quick and they are very nice. They are just like all of us....crazy for mustangs!

You aren't having issues with Hondas are you? Those things need a lot of work before they can run with our cars stock.

Oh and nitrous is the way to go for a weekend warrior, just be smart and keep the shot 100 or less. Cheapest second you'll gain in the 1/4

Gears, headers, and maybe some suspension mods to help get the power to the ground!.. How much you looking to spend?..

S2000s should be a drivers race. I managed to fend one off at my local road-course because he was a mediocre driver. Granted I do have a tune and 3.55s.

If you want long tubes the you are gonna have to drop the k-member.
