Need some advice!

I just bought my dream car which was a 2007 Convertible i would have loved a v8 but the insurance was a little too pricey so I am content with a V6. I have been trying to figure out what mods to do to my mustang because its basically fully stock besides a flowmaster 40 muffler that the last owner placed on it. I just need some advice on what i can do to increase the HP and torque and maybe give it a little more aggressive sound. Id like to turn it into a mustang i can take to shows but im not sure where to start! Thanks for the help. I can add pictures of my mustang later today the weather is not so good.

I would suggest converting to a true dual exhaust . X-pipes usually see the most gains.. A tune and cold air intake is good, new wires, coil pack, maybe even high flow cats. Definitely a new set of wheels and tires and maybe control arms. The best bang for your buck would be getting new gears however

For an automatic I would get 4.10" gears. A tune and CAI are definitely a good start though

Would you recommend any specific brand of CAI? Or just any package one?

JLT or Airraid. Or even the ford racing one. Basically any CAI that requires a tune will be better than ones that dont

Yep! Don't forget the tune. You'll see mpg gains with them paired together. The guys on these forums are great and any questions will be answered based off knowledge and experience. Good luck on your build!

Lowering springs and some tokico hp shocks and dampers, dont forget the caster/camber plates and adjustable panhard bar. I love my C&L CAI. Everything else these guys have said are great ideas!
