New here! Mods!

Hey guys! Just bought my first car! And yah a mustang of course! 2007 v6 after buying it noticed steam under the hood looked at it and saw the thermostat housing was leaking so I replaced that and everything is running smoothing! I wanna start modding my stang but don't really know what to start with!/: was thinking a flowmaster super 10 muffler would be a decent start! Especially since I'm a highschool student making minimum wage!lol any suggestions?

I was where you are 2 years ago lol but start off with window tint. The flowmaster mufflers do not sound good with a single exhaust. Next I'd go with a cold air intake and a tune. Depending on options it will run you anywhere from $500-650 for a combo. I'm sure you know but check out americanmuscle.com and look around the site and start a build list

Post up some pics! And true duals can get pretty expensive to run. I have dual flowmaster outlaws with an h pipe and stainless steel mid pipes. Including install it cost around $800

That's quite an interesting set up. I like the color though! Orange lemans stripes may be a little over the top for my taste but to each their own. Sounds like you have a good plan going!

A custom tune will be the best mod you'll ever do to that car. Follow that up with true dual exhaust with some good mufflers (not cheap sh*t, you'll just spend more $ replacing it later) and you'll be set for performance and sound. A cold air intake would be follow those but isn't the best bang for the buck.

Aesthetics that should of came from the factory: 8inch shorty antenna ($20), painted mirror covers ($100), and sequential tail lights ($130).

If you're going duals then get an x pipe and a chambered muffler. If you want to run a single then the flowmaster 10 will give you just that

I'm running a BBK catted x pipe with Magnaflow mufflers, pretty dang loud and turns plenty of heads. My set up is high pitched and raspy so I would highly recommend if this is what you're going for. I can try to post an exhaust vid if you'd like
