What first mods do i do?

I have a 2010 Mustang GT, I have just a flowmasters 40 axle back right now but it's not loud enough and I'm planning on putting a throttle body and a cold air intake, and some headers, and maybe an h-pipe or x-pipe. Any suggestions?

I wouldn't say that... Maybe it would be the case for a brand new car under warranty, since a tune voids warranty. It's always best to stretch out its legs and make sure its not a lemon before doing that. Since yours is a 2010 its most likely not under warranty anymore, if its running fine w/o issues then a tune from a reputable tuner like Bama, Steeda, Lund, Lethal, etc. Your car can only run better with a good tune.

Tuner that will help out greatly you can go catless that will give you a 10-20hp increase. Suspension and lowering the car a bit if you want better handling. or maybe an aluminum driveshaft if you want to lighten up the car a bit.

For 2010 and newer i'd personally go x-pipe over h-pipe, CAI and tune, maybe a boss 302 or cobra jet intake, me personally i'm doing suspension first and working my way up to the engine. get some rims, maybe, 19x8.5 et 35 front, 19x10 et 35 rear. just my .02

You cant put a boss 302 or a cobra jet intake on a 2010. 2010 is a 4.6.

I second this. It's literally around 100hp difference between a 2011 and a 2010 gt.
