99-04 mustang gt upgrades

Just sold my 02 gt and bought a 03 gt. I'm trying to decide what route to take on upgrades... Pls list some upgrades and dyno stats if you got them...

My preference is to build a car from the ground up. Once the suspension and brakes are sorted then start adding power.

Agree +1 no use of having power if you can't put it down

Re: 99-04 mustang gt upgrades

Exhaust gives some decent gains on those 2v's...nothing crazy like h/c/i or FI but some gains. Do full exhaust to get the maximum gains - headers, midpipe, catback.

UDP's are good for a few hp and tq too...if you plan on running a supercharger I'd skip them as you don't want an underdriven supercharger

I'd consider some gears and a tune after the exhaust. The gears won't add power, but you'll definitely be quicker as the power is better distributed throughout the powerband.

The tune (use a handheld tuner) will adjust for gear tire changes, adjust shift points/firmness (auto) and free up some power on the higher octane race tunes.

Some guys do go a step further and start upgrading heads, cams and intakes (h/c/i). I know a few guys who are happy with the Trickflow setups as well as the Comp Cams Stage 2's.

I know a guy with the trickflow setup that goes to the track all the time, he has dyno sheets of it putting down 330 rwhp. That thing will fly too.

What does he have? Just a trick flow intake manifold? Heads?

Re: 99-04 mustang gt upgrades

From what I've heard the most gains are seen with the Trickflow H/C/I setup. Costly but effective if you want a solid N/A motor.
