Gears and tuner pronto!

The gears will give you faster acceleration and the tuner will give you an extra 30-40 HP easy with your current mods and be able to adjust the speedometer after you install your gears. American Muscle sells a combo (gears and tuner)
And you get free custom Bama performance tunes for life with your purchase!

Yea I thought about the the tuner. Gears are a must. I should at least get some sort of a suspension right?

With gears a tuner is a must and it's the only way you'll get the most power from your full exhaust.

gears, tuner and DEFINITELY suspension. however the tuner wont quite give you 30-40 horsepower...but it is still a good investment

I pulled the 30-40 number because he has headers and mid pipe and catbacks witch is supposed to net about 15 HP when tuned and the tune from AM and bama performance gets 21 rwhp on a stock mustang gt. so that was a rough guesstimation. But I don't think it's too far off.

Bama claims to get 21 out of it, but personally I dont think they get it. If you notice on the video they get that with the tuner and a cai. I would say with his mods he is realisticly looking at 20rwhp over what he has now

I duno Cody, all I have is a CAI and a cat back and that race tune makes my baby scream over what she was...I wouldn't hesitate a minute to say I gained 20-25hp when tuned with just those two mods. So ima lean towards the higher numbers too.
