Need help with next purchase

What should I get next. Choices: tuner, pillar and gauges, or o/r h-pipe. Or anything else under $400.

Have you done gears? That's a good investment people say best bang for you're buck. But I would say do the pillar gauges!!

Tuner or h pipe, but gauges are pretty sweet. What are you wanting to get?
Put up your read end and spin your tire a full turn and count how many times your drive shaft spins.
3 3/4ish, 373
4 and a tad 410
3 1/4 ish 327
And so on

What's your mods already? If you have a lot of mods already I would do tuner.

Oil pressure, water temp, and air fuel ratio. And that's what I'm gonna do soon.

The price of their tachometers concerns me a little, seems pretty cheap. But they look cool enough that i may ditch my ford racing gauges for a few of them! Love the green!

NAW! Kick the gauges. Plan ahead. Here's an impromptu:

Exhaust: be loud, or be quiet but deadly.
Engine: improve throttle body; be quick on engine response. Same HP.
Dress up:'make under hood nice.
Long term plan:
- long tube headers
- 70 mm throttle body
-diff rebuild/upgrade
-suspension upgrade
-gaskets change
-clutch change/ upgrade
-interior upgrade
-enjoy your car by cleaning It and making eye pleasing changes
-no hurry, we appreciate home built stangs, and more...
- take your time, no rush
-what's your plan?

About half is usually lost on resale =\„ unless you go through the dealer then probably only get 50 bucks per 1000 spent.
