New to the Threads...

Well I am new here, and was recommended here by a friend.

I am currently in possession of a V6 2005 Mustang. And I would like to improve it's performance. My good friend has suggested tuning, but I cannot afford a Tuner where I stand.

So what would be a good way to go about improving performance, yet keeping a decent budget? Or should I just save for a tuner?

Question is!.. What's your budget!.. About the best mod you can get for your car is a tuner!.. As every thing else falls into play with that!.. Other mods like a Cold Air Intake, and cat back exhaust will help!.. But you won't actually see their full potential with out at least a basic tune!..

Re: New to the Threads...

Most exhausts are still more expensive then a tuner. It would be safe to get that, so as you add more parts you can have your car retuned to get more out of it. And with american muscles free tunes for life its a great investment. other than that most cold air intakes are cheaper, but you may run a bit lean without a tune on some of them (stay away from tune required ones if you dont get a tuner first). I would also recommend one with a reusable air filter, to keep costs down.

Re: New to the Threads...

@blackhawk1, thanks for the suggestion. You think it could be cheaper?

@Eturner, it would make sense to get the tuner first since it would improve on any other part I add. Besides, my budget says, "Might as well save instead." haha

@ForsakenProto, sounds like the tuner would save me trouble from picking between the parts that need tuning and the parts that don't. Among the fact that it would make every part I add better.
