Help me decide!

It's my birthday today...turned 30! So the wife gave my around $1250.00 to spend on the car. So I can't decide on what to do. Car is completely stock with 123 miles on it. Here is my options, all from AM:

1. Boss power Pack
2. Outlaw flowmatster axel back, JLT CAI, and Bama tuner
3. Outlaw flowmaster cat bat and Bama Tuner

What would you do?

Also shipping to hawaii is about $200.

I can't stand flowmaster. Always loved magnaflow and always hated borla, but I believe Carol shelby had something to do with working with borla and creating a better sound for the new mustang. This borla system sounds amazing imo.

Borla S-type.

That does sound pretty amazing! I looked but wasn't able to find the information on power gain from this set-up.

Most ppl give it at least 5-10 before they tune, its better to be safe then sorry since it will void your warranty... After that mileage, its highly unlikely anything major will go wrong drivetrain wise... Should be solid, I would say go for a set of axlebacks as your first mod, and use Google and see what others have done for mods

I'd do off road x pipe , axelback, and a tune . Then hooking up will be a problem . What gears do you have ?

That bracket seems relatively cheap I think I will throw that on the order as a present to myself.

If you're looking for straight line help, I'd highly recommend some lower control arms to help with launching. Cant go wrong with a tuner or the Boss manifold for hp. If you do get the Boss manifold I'd recommend a short throw shifter with a shifter bracket (if you have a manual) because the shifter can be stubborn at high RPM shifts.

I'm thinking of going with the barton short throw shifter, H&R springs, koni shocks/struts, and uca/lca. I think that will be a good first start. I am going to keep looking to see if I can find a suspension package with that in it.

the eibach suspension package doesn't appeal to me. I don't really want the sway bars.

Exhaust is always the first thing I do on my cars. Tune is the last. I always get custom tunes though.

Tunes won't work with your car every tune is specific to the PCM of that car so I would ave him unmarry the sct meaning he flashes his car back to stock then the rest sounds like a good deal

After some research I found it may be a wise decision to keep in under warranty until I get a little more mileage on her just in case something happens and I need that warranty.

I am going to start working on the suspension next.

Smart move IMO. Exactly what I did. Exhaust, rims/tires, barton, suspension. Im at 7k miles now, and am having a really hard time not giving in and getting a tune haha. I have a few more things i need to do first to hold me over. UCA and mount, GT500 spoiler, and MT street comps for rear.

Im lowered so i did the lcas and relo brackets at the same time. If you're stock hight you can skip the brackets for now. But oh my god, they made a huge difference. Cant wait to get the MT street comps on the back too
