2009 4.0

My mustang is a stick, headers wen changed, has Pypes and a cold air. What else can I do to improve performance on it(after I fix the antifreeze leak of course) I would also like to make it visually better as well. Any suggestions would be great.

Tuner
Lowering springs
New wheel and tire combo
That should start you off pretty good.

I've thought about the tuner idea before. Is it really worth it? Also with my lack of knowledge on the tuning aspects I would be afraid of destroying everything under the hood.

Absolutely worth it just give whoever it is you'd buy it from any engine and exhaust mod list and they'll send you your tuner already tuned to your specs. I prefer to buy my parts from Americanmuscle.com.

Tunes are soo worth it, after I got one, I can get out of it! I use a roush aggressive shifting tune is just great! It really wakes up the car. Maybe a new coil pack with good spark plugs and wires too?

Definitely a tune to tie together your cold air intake, headers, and dual exhaust (I'm assuming by Pypes you mean dual exhaust conversion). On the 4.0 liter, it's a night and day difference. Hands down worth it.

To start of with visual mods, maybe some painted mirror covers from AM? $85 and I think they should of came stock.
