Newby to 4.6 world

I've had a 5.0 for a couple years now, just upgraded to a 99 GT. Just curious about good affordable HP upgrades, any good suggestions? Car is bone stock, 5-speed.

O/r x or h pipe with good Flo thru mufflers , cold air intake and tuner will get you started.

Go with an SCT tuner with Bama tunes. Most CAI are about the same as far as I know. And my vote would go towards a nice catback setup or some gears 3.73 or 4.10.

After that, there's also a larger throttle body and plenum. This gives some extra HP and much better throttle response, especially if you already have the tuner.

Looks like you have some nice aftermarket Bullitt rims, so I would lower it and get rid of some of the fender gap.

Awesome, I actually just put on the red decals on back of mine too. Love the way they look, I also just installed my CAI last week, New chrome fog lights, and my new mufflers are getting installed today. Hope it sounds good. If not I'll need to get a midpipe to help out.

This has been something I've been considering, I love the deep dish in back.
