Next mod for my 2010 Mustang!

So far for appearance I got
- Quarter Window Louvers
- Headlight Splitters
- 12" White Racing Stripes

And Performance
- Magnaflow Dual Catback Exhaust

Next mods I'm thinking of doing are
- Cai (without a tune)
- Grabber Blue Mirror Covers
- Strut Tower Brace
- 3.73 Gears (Wondering if anyone knows how much installation for these costs?)
- Or New Headlights (Thinking The Halo Ones)

Wheels are in the near future though since I'm on a budget right now though

So which ones would y'all get first and again just wondering if anyone knows how much a shop would typically install gears for? and would any of these be pointless to get?

Gears would cost around $300+ to install. Gotta check shops in your area. And tbh, I wouldn't do them on your 7.5 rear. I'd upgrade to an 8.8 if it were me. You can find take-off 8.8 rears with gears installed on newtakeoff.com. Believe they go for around $700-$1000? Plus installation which would probably be a few hundred as a guess. I think mirror covers and halo lights are pointless but that's just me

Oh sweet thanks for the info. And those were the last on my list for wanting most likely gonna get the Cai and the strut bar. Make my engine look a little better and improve the performance more. But gears are no longer an option lol

Curious as to why you wouldn't want a tune though?

I want one just not with the Cai right now. Too much right now since schools about to start up again.

Maybe I'll just get the Cai and the mirror covers at the same time so I can get some performance and appearance upgrade. Is the Cai worth it to y'all without a tune?

I didn't have a good experience with cai without a tune but many others have, we all agreed that you see the full potential of cai unless you get a tune. I say you start with wheels. All the other minor appearance parts won't do much for you without wheels, that's what really changes the look of the car. Understood they can be pricey but if you save up instead of spending $100 here $200 there you will have the cash before you know it. You can get 19" wheel and tire package shipped to your door for around $1200 from www.americanmuscle.com. That's my 2cents
