Just picked up an 03 GT

Hey everyone, just picked up an 03 gt, miles are a little high at 170k but got it for only 3500 with no problems. Gonna do a full tune up and picking up my buddies Steeda intake. What are some mods that a budget friendly hahah it's a 5 speed so the short shifter is a must and lowering it as well

Lower
275/40/17s on the back
And just get a nice sound system

And It has the mach 460 system, we have that in our cobra and it sounds good, might just change the radio

All that would be nice haha but I just want a peppy daily driver, I did stuff to my sixxer but it had way less miles, I want this engine to last, and I'm very religious about my oil changes haha
Do the different intakes have different power gains? I know for the v6 all the intakes are the same, but what about for the gt?

I was looking at that one, I like the look if ram style intakes, it almost looks the same at the k&n intake for my v6
I wanna know if the gains are different because I wanna get the best on I can, I get a little discount on k&n products so if they're all the same I can get either the SR one or the k&n for $198 which isn't too expensive
