What's up,
Just got a 99 gt vert 100,000 miles runs great

Basically I want to know if this is a good setup to start off with or should I go another route or if there's anything else I should get, I will be buying in pieces not all at once

BBK cai with throttle body 78mm
Long tube headers
Under drive pulleys
High flow water pump
Exedy Stage 2 clutch
Ford racing 4;10 gears
Ford racing aluminum drive shaft
Drilled rotors (needs new rotors anyway)
Lowering springs 2" front 1.5 rear

If you lower the car Caster Camber plates are required. Get the Max Motorsports ones, don't get the cheaper ones as they make noise and actually can fail and have fun with that...

A good starter combo is:

4.10 Gears
Lower Control Arms
Lowering Springs/Shocks/Struts/CC plates
Subframe connectors (Steeda)
Short shifter (MGW or Steeda)
Offroad midpipe and catback (stock manifolds are not really restrictive on modulars)
Underdrive pullies
Intake Plenum (Trick Flow or Accufab)
Full tune up (New OEM COPs or COP rebuild kit, Autolite 103s and all new fluids)
Cobra front rotors/brackets/calipers
Good wheels/tires
Custom tune

Ok thanks alot. I already have the sub frame connectors and did a full tune up as soon as I bought it, everything OEM but I used accel cops. Now i do A LOT of highway driving i would say about 80% of the time but do you think the 4;10s would be too much? Or should i go with 3;73s ? Thanks again

If you do a ton of highway driving you may want to keep the gears you have provided they are 3.27s. Also depends how fast you go. 99/00 cars and a few 01s have the good version of the T-45 and a .68 overdrive. At 70mph with stock size wheels you will be turning 2450 or so with 4.10s. You will also need a speedcal to get your speedometer corrected unless you get a tuner and then they can just do it in the tune.

As far as the Accel COPs... if they are running well now then leave them alone but just be aware they are not nearly as good as OEMs as far as durability goes.
