Question Are these good Mods?

Hey guys I have an 04GT with 50 Thousand miles on it and I'm trying to reach 300+ horse power I'm thinking about just buying a pro-charger but i was told i should beef the engine up a tab bit first so i was thinking Comp Cams,Intake Manifold,3.73 Gears...
I already have the Cold Air, Long Tubes headers,Off road X-Pipes and Cat back Exhaust...
What should i do throw the pro-charger on or take my time and beef the engine up first!

That ^ also save your money on the cams/intake manifold/long tubes and just go with a procharger... these engines can handle 450hp so if you're gonna drop a lot of money making more power then you might as well get your money's worth out of it.

Might not be as appealing but +1

Get a good set of shocks/springs, maybe CAs and SBs as well.

Engine will be alright to 400ish

Just get a bigger maf, 60-80lb injectors , bigger fuel pump , and get money for a sct handheld tuner , and dyno tune.

With the 2 valves you can buy just rods or buy rods and pistons and be safe around 600-650 without changing anything else. After that you'll want head studs and other supporting parts. But for 400-450 there is no need to do anything. A good tune will be key and make sure you have enough fuel. 60 pounds injectors would be perfect. 80s is a little overkill.

Suspension first, "spinnin ain't winnin". Your stock intake manifold does not need to be replaced, it flows great. Cams... save your $$ and just supercharge it. I'd just get a Vortech S trim and call it a day. If you get the whole kit it comes with everything but you will need a better tune than the stock Vortech one.

But yeah... if you have the stock suspension you'll lose at the track to cars making way less power than you.

Just because I give you advice, doesn't mean I know more than you. Its just means I've done more stupid ****.

Cams can wait. Welded full length subframes, progressive springs, MM LCA's, ditch quad shocks, stocker UCA's, sticky tires.

Once that's done pick up a used Vortech V2 or Procharger, send it out for rebuild and slap it on. Obviously upgrade fuel, spark and tune.
