I have about $1000-$1500 to put into my 04 GT right now, and I was wondering if anyone knew some cheap and easy mods to gain hp such as exhausts, gears, intakes, etc... Just asking for suggestions if anyone knows what's best.

[QUOTE="Raf5050;1723601"]I have about $1000-$1500 to put into my 04 GT right now, and I was wondering if anyone knew some cheap and easy mods to gain hp such as exhausts, gears, intakes, etc... Just asking for suggestions if anyone knows what's best.

1. gears ( 410>373 )
2. Short shifter
3. Tuner
4. Suspension ( Rear control arms / Upper ) ( Springs ) ( Full length subframe connectors )
5. Long tube headers , X Pipe
6. Typhoon manifold , Plenum , 70mm TB, Cold air intake

That's what I would do if I started with a Gt again..

Gears will be best bang for buck ..

You will notice it more than other mods
Normal gear install is 150+ labor which should be no more than 300$

Slow pretty much covered it, though I'd avoid headers and intake manifold until you have everything else he mentioned. Stock intake and exhaust manifolds flow sufficient for a bolt-on 2v. Start with exhaust and a cold air intake. You'll love the sound of the exhaust, and the CAIs offered by American Muscle are super cheap, even moreso with your forum discount. Gears will give you the biggest improvement in acceleration.

There is a sticky called "Beginner's Guide to bolt ons" at the top of the forum.
