Don't know how to proceed - Mods

I have a 2014 v6 and right now I have the BBK shorty headers, BBK catted x pipe, roush axle backs, Airaid CAI, and a 93R bama tune. I have few things in mind for the next mod but I'm wondering what would be my best bang for my buck to do next.
1- 3.37 gears
2- aluminum driveshaft
3- BBK 73mm throttle body
4- open to suggestion!

This is my first thread so sorry if it's on the wrong place!

Hey Entities19 - Welcome to MustangEvolution. I think it's alright that's this is posted in here and if not one of the mods can have it moved over to the 11+ V6 Section.

That's a really good question and I would have to start off by asking what you're looking to get out of the car?
Looking to make it a little more peppy during your daily commute?
Do you Drag race?
All of these will come into play here!

Being said I think a set of Ford Racing 3.73 Gears would be a great upgrade - I can't stress it enough how popular they are (Especially around here as well!) and they'll really wake the car up so it's not feeling so lethargic. The only downside in my opinion is if you have a heavy foot and your commute is on the longer side you will see your fuel consumption suffer as they're going to essentially force you into the higher rpm range. The Pro's are that the cars going to get off the line like a bat out of hell along with having power on tap in the rev range where you wouldn't typically have it with your stock rear. Here's a couple reviews as well!





If you go that route and you're still looking to better enhance your V6's performance after the fact I would recommend taking a look at the The Driveshaft Shop's One Piece Driveshaft - this would essentially work hand in hand with your gears to get you up to speed even that much faster. Not only is the OEM DS the weakest link on the 11+ V6's but it's on the heavier side as well. This piece is 20lbs lighter and if you're tracking the car every little bit is going to help get you off the line and down the 1320 that much faster. Here's a couple reviews too!






Let me know if you're to have any other questions at all and I'm here to help!

Alex

It is my daily commute, but I would like to be able to keep up at the strip on the weekends. Thanks for the advise, I'll look into those ideas!

Gears and suspension. Also, manual or automagic?

Tune, gears, exhaust and then suspension and pretty much G2G, same as the Coyote really. The Cyclone is possibly THE most underappreciated/underrated motor out there. Has decades of "just a V6" stigma to fight.

I'm going to go with the gears. I got a performance shop that quoted the install at $300, which beats the average $550 iv been seeing. I'm doing my best to make sure I can beat friends almost stock '10 v8

Oh she's already tuned. And I love it. I have a friend who's running 3.73 in his '14 v6 and he says it drives like a bat out of hell now

I'm not sure about the 6 but I know with the 8 you never want to go above 3.31s because of how the new 6 speeds are geared. I'm assuming you can go higher because the 6 doesn't make as much torque. But yeah, give me a 2011 V6 over a 05-10 V8 any day especially since lower mileage 2011s are like $14k now.

I'll definitely look into that! I'm pretty new to gears and all that so I'll do some more research.. And people always hate on the v6, but am pretty much done with all the bolt ons I can do, and she loud, she's fast, and she's mean lol

Upload to youtube and then just paste the link. Easier and you have a centralized video repository. photobucket works too but photobucket has become kind of ****ty in the last few years.
