Suggestions on upgrades

So I'm new to the whole mustang thing but, anyways I want to put some more HP on my stang but don't know what to add next. It already has the basics a K&N CAI and a Magnaflow exhaust. Any suggestions on what to do next? Thanks

Here is a very good thread about the basic "Bolt on's".

No problem!

I didn't realize until just now that they removed all of the other posts from Cliffy's thread. It used to be much more informative because people would ask questions and Cliff would elaborate. What a shame...

If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

They moved Cliffy's post into the DIY section without all the extra posts in it

I recommend using Americanmuscle.com they sell all your mustang parts for like every year! I bought over 10+ things from them and never had a problem, their customer service is great as well! (:. Get 50 posts on here and you can ask a AM guy on here for 6% discounts for all your purchases' 😜🙌 Keepin Moddin' Goodluck(:

Alex from AM has become pretty generous when handing out the discount code if you do not have the 50 post requirement. But, to substitute the 50 post count rule, he looks at the quality of your posts to determine if you are a fly by night memebr or one here to stay. If he figures you to be later of the two, then he will give it to you. But you have to PM him for the code. He can be located in the first sticky on the main page on top under American Muscle title.

I think I would look into buying a gears/tuner combo. The tune will boost your engines response and the gears will put your current power to the ground better. 3.73, or 4.10 gears are pretty popular. Gears is your best "bang for the buck" mod. You feel the difference instantly.
