08 Mustang V6 Budget Build.

I Currently own a 08 mustang v6 and i wanted to make a thread on it. I'm not really making a lot of money. So i decided to make a budget build and see where I get with that. So for i have an intake and shorty headers. Soon I will do a lot of upgrades. But also i am looking for opinions. On what i should do. Thanks a lot.

first of all, buy them second hand where you can, of course. until now i've payed only 1/3 of what it should have been.
I see you have a pony package, so you have bigger than standard v6 wheels so this kit would go a long way with you
Ford Racing Mustang V6 Front Rotor Upgrade Kit M-2300-D (05-10 V6) - Free Shipping M-2300-D

also, instead of a dual exhaust i added a cutout on the y pipe and power and sound-wise it doesn't get any better that this, but when it's open, sometimes it's too loud for your mood, but you can always close it

by the way, can you please please tell me the size of your front and rear sway bar? i am looking to upgrade mine to pony package ones and there are many opinions about those sizes on the internet. Thanks

Gears(4.10s)

Tune
Nitrous
Short throw shifter(if manual)
Suspension(lowered)
Get rid of the shorties and go with long tubes
An off road H
And flow master 40s or super 44s
Get in contact with super six Motorsports
And see if u can get a custom grind cam that will be mild and not have to do head work.

Getting custom ground cams will not be cheap. And he is lookin for a budget build.

Hmm... I could be way wrong but that CAI without a heat shield that is also mounted further away from the fender well looks like it would hinder air flow rather than improve it

"Helps a lot." I'd say it's more like absolutely necessary. I don't know man, I'm really curious if that home-made looking air intake is even up to par with the stock intake...
