2001 Auto GT Vert

I have a 2001 Auto GT Vert and I just have a few basic bolt-ons. I have a BBK CAI, O/R mid pipe, cat-back, 4.10 gears and a tune. I am wanting more power, but unfortunately don't have the money to go Forced Induction. What should I do next to make more power?

Pullies, throttle body, upper plenum, cam, or you could just spray it.

Do the J-mod, its cheap, easy and while you won't have more power, your car will be much quicker and fun to drive. Look it up on youtube. It may seem daunting but if you can follow directions and use hand tools you can do it. This is also not something any shop but a mustang specific shop will even know about so its almost always a DIY thing.

I would not recommend spray (nitrous) with a plastic intake, spells disaster in my mind.

I'll definitely keep that in mind. I was thinking of doing a swap on it. Just because I love driving a straight drive. But I may consider the J-mod now. And definitely looking at cams. But what stage can I go with without hurting myself in the long run?

I'm not a big fan of spray myself either. I don't do a whole lot of strip runs

If you are going to cam the car it won't be cheap. Cams, valve springs, degree service, install hardware and then the tune on top of it will run you into the $1500 range. IMO, not really worth it. And that is if you do all the work yourself...

Minimal gains also. Not like a pushrod that picks up a lot from just a cam swap.

Pushrods pick up way less from a cam swap than the PI does. Unless they are GT40 Cobra motors they'll pick up little to no power and require a $600 tune to run like the stock cam. A PI motor with bolt ons and a good tune will see 30-40rwhp gains from cams which is really good. I mean REALLY good. But for $1500 you can damn near get a new turbo kit for that price or definitely a used Vortech. Also if the rest of the car still has upgrades that need doing like suspension etc... they should be done before cams or a blower anyway.

Well depends on the pushrod. When I typed that out I had an LS motor in my mind.

Since money is an issue, and you want results now with minimal invested, then I would work on the exterior of the engine. That being said is not going to net you much in HP at the wheels. Things like the throttle body, intake, pullies, and a custom tune. The j-mod is basically a freebie as the work is basically using basic tools and carefull attention to detail. But that in itself will only net you better shift points and not HP. But with the better shifting will make it feel more responsive which in itself will make it feel like you gained in the HP dept. There are youtube videos posted in this forum on how to do a j-mod. So just punch in the j-mod in search and you will get many results. I find that you can more to the point results by using google search instead of forum search.

Along with the J-mod if he has access to a shop with a lift or can afford the $labor to have a converter done, that is something else to look into. A bolt on/tuned 2V with suspension and a j-mod with a good aftermarket stall converter is a 12 second car.
