GT rear bumper or dump the exhaust.
New grille(personally I hate the small fog lights)
New front bumper or chin spoiler, needs a more mean look, tint the windows dark dark(again personal)
Drop it 1.5"-1.75"
Gloss Black Saleens 18x9 and 18x10
Maybe some louvers and side scoops.

Performance
LTs
H-pipe or X
And choice of mufflers
Cam, P/P Heads and intake
Tuner
CAI
T B and spacer
Supercharger or Turbo
Under Drive Pullies
T-Lok and gears.

List of stuff u can do^

Don't waste money upgrading your rear end if u do plan on boosting ur car buy a 05-12 8.8 rear end it's a direct replacement an I would recommend a one piece aluminum drive shaft along with all the other basilica bolt on an I have Mac Lt headers they make the 6 sound like a Honda personally

I've heard that LTs on the 05-09 4.0s just aren't great sounding.
I dont understand why?
I've heard LTs and O/R mid and flow 40s on a 3.8/3.9l engine and it sounds great but can u explain why the sound diff on the two years?

I disagree on that, I've heard a 2005-2009 with LTs and it sounds hella good, you just need a tune to bring it together

I was going to get pacesetter lt headers but am an other websites had bad reviews on them saying that the quality was bad an the rust really fast so I got the Mac lt headers which r wider in diameter hints the ricer sound which I agree with I don't like them at all but I just put my pypes shorty headers back on but I have a friend with a 07 v6 with the pacesetter lt with the magnaflow catback an it sounds decent but the headers r rusting by the x pipe pretty bad an he's had them for only 8 months

I did the same without doing headers. Just cut the muffler off. It sounded great. Now im running a open X pipe for the time being. Until i get the side exaust done.

And for your mods id do a different grill. Maybe try to find wheels off a 10-13 mustang. And do some body mods. I have the eleanor body kit and the cervi ram air hood. Plus scoops and louvers. It turns heads everywhere i go.

Get a tuner and cold air first makes a big difference. My auto spins it into gear now.
