Part list

Okay so my mustang is stock (5spd) and I don't really know alot when it comes to engine just the basics. So I was wondering if some one can give me a complete list what to get with the brand name for performance. It's a DD also for now.

If your like me and (not rich), I would just go with the basics for now. Underdrive pulleys, (I went with steeda), cold air intake, (most go with BBK but alot of other brands make them), Full exhaust is on the more expensive side but worth it (Mufflers, x or h pipe), a tuner if you want, and maybe a short throw shifter if that suits your fancy.

Thought you said you didn't know much?!?... Lol Jk. Looks like you've got a real good list to start with!..

I would also suggest some other mods, such as full length sub frame connectors, upper and lower control arms, front and rear strut tower bars, Steeda G track bar or Maximum Motorsports 4 point K member brace!..

Just a few different things to help with traction!...

I'd definitely get a tuner if you don't already have one. Biggest bang for your buck!

Correct me somebody, but I think the only thing you must have the tuner for is the throttle body upgrade.

Ive heard some tuners to recommend headers and exhaust. But you will be fine without that.

Actually I've heard the other way around!.. That is, if you have full exhaust such as LTs O/R Mid and so on, that you need a tuner!..

Not sure if that's what you ment!..

He'll also need the tuner to recalibrate the speedo after the gear swap as well as turn off the rear O2s due to the O/R mid pipe.

And take it from me.. You're going to want to get a tune after your new exhaust and TB upgrade or else you'll run lean and have problems like I did.

That's because your not going to throw a code with an upgraded TB!.. But you will with Off Road Pipes!..

When you re-tune for the x pipe, are you snubbing the code or actually changing the tune so it still uses the O2 sensors?

With mine I simply turned them off!... For the most part that is how most of them are done!.. I have heard of a few shops that have been able to tune so you can still use the O2 sensors!.. But I have not seen it personally!..

Does that hurt performance? Or, maybe that just stops the ECU from trying to adjust? Don't mean to ask so many questions just trying to learn

I want to get O/R mid pipe at some point but I think I'll have to get a new cat back setup. I have Flowmaster muffler delete now.

Getting an O/R mid pipe will increase your performance!.. Especially over the stock one!.. And turning off your O2 sensors will not hurt your performance at all!..

Hey E what up. Good stuff man. No i didnt read all the posts...too much reading. Just wanna chime in on a few pointers. I remember when I was a beginner too. I made a few mistakes along the way. I didn't try to imagine where I wanted my performance go, so I just bolted on whatever. For example, I bought a BBK O/R X pipe w/mid pipe setup (thankfully). No problem, but when it came to exhaust headers I was forced into shorties to capitalize on my Investments. I wasn't too dumb to realize I could use LTs. Still, I wanted the best of both worlds, easy tranny drop etc. So I hope the thread owner takes time to think things thru to include long term budgeting. See, once you get hooked, your hooked for life; usually.

Today I still run on 10%over stock clutch, but I plan to replace the T-out bearing with a high end one until I reach my desired HP I need to upgrade.

First upgrade I would make is TB to 70mm, next I would attack the suspension if needed; Then exhaust, or vice versa; Exhaust headers; tuner; diff gear upgrade; PI heads if needed; FI if internals can support.

When I'm done with my vert, I'll build a race only Stang.
