There are a ton of options, are you going more for looks or performance?

Hmmmm if it's manual you can do the hurst/ford racing short throw shifter. I've got that and it is great. I would definitely do a tunner and CAI. I don't have either but am planning on a JLT CAI and the BAMA tuner from AM. The JLT is highly rated and is a 84mm. If you want to go the suspension route I like the look of the SR lowering springs, I have bought them but haven't had the time to throw them on and still have to buy the accompanying parts.

The JLT has a bad name right now if I get a Cai I'm getting a ford racing one

And it's an automatic so I was thinking about getting 4.10 gears for it

Go ahead with the GEARS. I have them on mine. I also have a Tuner, but mine is SCT.

How will the tune affect the new gears?

Your Tuner will need to adjust your tuner, with the new Gears. The Car Computer with only reflect from the Gears in it's computer already. So it needs to be told that you have different Gears.

That probably sounds weird, but what I means is: You need to adjust the Tuner to tell the Car that you changed the Gears.

$500 won't get you very far. With $500 you can either get a sub-par 'okay' quality dual exhuast conversion kit or have an exhaust shop do it for you, but don't think you'll get amazing sound or even close to a V8 tone.

What's wrong with JLT? I had their CAI on my V6 and it was great. Since you're on a budget, a non-tune required CAI would be alright and cost $200-$300 but don't expect any bump in fun factor until you get a tune (another $400).

I read somewhere on here about them being terrible for the engine, and I was actually looking to get a JLT until I saw those posts,
But yeah I plan on buying both tuner and cold air intake at the same time because I want one that requires a tune for a even better fun factor
And for exhaust I'm looking at a pipes true dual

I was just seeing which would give me more bang for my buck

I say get: CAI/Tuner first, then Exhaust, then Gears. My opinion on Throttle Bodies differs from a lot of other People.

Yeah, when I said sub-par 'okay' exhaust system I was referencing the Pypes system, but most people cheap out for it anyway.

Scrap that throttle body. You're off to a great start looking for a good bang for the buck, but a throttle body on a naturally aspirated, minor bolt-on 4.0 won't do anything for you.

I agree with KATO, tune+CAI will make the fun factor sky rocket, or if you like sound put exhaust first.

You mean the Throttle Body? Well here it is, BUT I am basing and Referring to a GT. My Performance Shop advised me that Ford did a Excellent job with their Throttle Bodies, and they are not necessary to change them, and aftermarket TB are hard to Tune. So I did not need to waste that Money buying one, regardless of the Write-ups they make about them in Magazines.

Spend all the money on a throttle body now

I just thought it would have came in handy with the exhaust, and cold air intake and all I thought it would help boost all of those upgrades but thanks

No Problem. It's not always easy to get True information sometimes. And it's hard to separate what's Truth and what's just People boasting about all the Money they spent. They almost Never tell you what was a waste of Money.
