Need to win

Just finished the body work on my 02 Stang GT 5 speed, and now my buddy has all these cruises planned. I'd like for my 02 to have a bit of an edge over his 03 GT 5 speed. Not too much of an edge, just enough for him to be bum hurt

The plan? I have no idea. I was planning on 3.73's, catless x-pipe, and the American Muscle tuner/intake bundle.

Any ideas for better bang for the buck? Just looking to get him from lets say, a roll in 2nd or whatever the kids are doing these days.

Also my GT is stock, and I want it to still seem stock, at least in appearance, which leads to my question of will a stock catback negate the benefits of a catless x-pipe?

Best "edge" over the guy/gal in the other lane...driver mod.

Of course gears, exhaust and a tune won't hurt

The stock exhaust will benefit a little from a mid pipe, it wont sound as good. Just do a mid pipe and weld in some performance mufflers, so many diff routes to go exhuast wise I dont have the energy to get into it. Get gears, go 410 and you will have a definte edge and he wont be able to hear or see anything, other than your tail lights!! (sorry couldnt help it) So off road mid pipe, muffler swap, 410 gears, tune/tuner ( go MPT), shifter, and you will have him for sure if hes stock. The only thing he will know for sure is that you changed your exhuast as it will be louder obviously. Then after that do suspension. Weld in full length sub frame connectors like Steeda or Maximum Motorsports, lowering springs, shock/struts, CC plates, wheels and tires, and lower control arms again Steeda or MM.

The only thing you need to do to beat him is gears. Anything else is just going to make it even better

I like the nitrous idea!


There is no better bang for the buck.

I agree. And then just tell him, " I dont know? Must be a good Monday motor".

Lol.
If the OP uses it sparingly, just enough to barely beat his buddy each time, he should be able to get away with it for a long time.
Just don't ever open the hood, or the trunk, while he is around.

Nitrous. I have a zex kit for 300 everything you need. Just need to hook it up. Little 75 shot should do the trick. No other modifications needed

Like was said here and some others responses, gears. Oh, and if he isn't looking, pull a spark plug wire or two under his hood. What? He IS a friend, right?
