Have you done anything besides just lowering it? Shocks/struts, subframe connectors, control arms, etc.

What mods do you have right now?

OP.... List your mods and tell us what you want the car to be better at. We can throw out random mods all day long, but it'll be much easier and more beneficial to you if you tell us what you want to improve on.

Ortiz just closed up shop. He may continue tunes though since you can do that almost anywhere.

Yeah I think him and his brother said they will work on tunes on his free time. He has always been so busy, it makes me sad to see him close down he is a very good tuner.

Lots of smaller performance shops have a hard time staying afloat unfortunately. Even real good ones.

If you do gears you may want to look into getting 31 spline axles and a posi 31 spline diff if you are want to launch pretty hard and dead hook. But then again some just do gears. Better to do it all at the same time than waste more money going back. Just something you should think about when doing gears.

If you are at a bolt on power level, its still not necessary but I doubt the OP is doing this. For a street car that just wants more power, there is 0 reason to go 31 spline and an upgraded diff.

Actually I have a buddy who broke his axles with slicks on at 320rwhp at the track and I've done plenty of research to see others breaking their rearend with usual bolt ons on other forums http://www.moddedmustangs.com/forums.../topics/186978

Road race the car. Problem solved. I'm only going to upgrade to 31 because that's the only way to get a Torsen T2R differential
