Need ideas for my new '14 gt

So i got a '14 gt last friday and i need ideas on what to do to it. I just recieved a set of matte black 20" fr500 wheels and a set of sve lowering springs from latemodel. I think ima tint the fog lights and all the sidemarker lights and all that. The car is the base model race red gt auto. Had to get auto so the wife could drive it too. Lol i also just installed a ford racing sport ab exhaust. I also bought new black 5.0 emblems. What performance mods should be first on my list? And exterior too? Thanks. Im a foxbody guy.

CAI w/ tuner and exhaust is pretty much what most ppl do off that bat. The tune surprised me the most when i first got it. In the best way possible!

Lot of ppl say the CAI isn't worth it, better off spending that $ on something else.

Your car is gonna look BA with those wheels. I'd get black hood vents to compliment the wheels/5.0 emblems and maybe the black vinyl roof wrap personally.

Post pics when you get those wheels on!

There's a lot of friendly competition between BAMA and Steeda here. BAMA offers a #8 cylinder warranty but rarely have issues, and Steeda tend to be more conservative/safe. Both cost about the same and offer tunes for life. CAI seems to be a resounding waste of money, but it looks better than the factory box to me.

Basically what I'm doing and what I'd suggest. Also because I hate chrome, lol. Definitely look into a set of trailing arms and a panhard bar to get rid of the nasty wheel hop and center the rear after dropping it. Maybe some strut mounts with a camber adjustment.

We may not try to make the most power ... but like stated ... our tunes are very safe, reliable & powerful. We have had 0 warranty issues when our tunes have been installed ... provides you with a piece of mind that your investment is safe when you run with Steeda.

The tune compliments the CAI very nicely. The combination provides better gains than just the tune alone. You can check out our CAI here:

Best Regards,
