For me, aesthetically, wheels. For performance, a decent tune.

Can't go wrong with a mid pipe and two pretty chrome pipes hanging out the back. You get performance/sound/style all in one package.

IMO, I think exhaust. Making her sound better is a must. A close second would be a tuner.

Best bang for the buck period is gears.

I'm just talking in general. It's what you did to your Stang. I want to know about that one mod that you did, and you stopped and said" this is the best thing I ever done to my car".

When my '98 blew its headgaskets, I swapped to a PI intake manifold and cams while I was in there. Best thing I did to that car.

I can't pic just one!.. I have to pick three, and that would be the exhaust (O/R X-pipe, Vortex Cat back), tuner, and rims!..
