Do u wanna do some appearance or performance?? Some new wheels & tires would look good!! LT headers or a mid pipe will add sound & performance!! Gears would also be a nice performance bump!!

I'm not quite sure! Haha, I want to get some new rims and lower it, but don't have that kind of money atm!

I am about to get $550 or so dollars from an accident a while back, so seeing what I could do for that amount.

I feel u on that! I'm trying to save up right now for some wheels & tires! For $550 u maybe do gears depending on how much u get them installed for! A LP or BBk mid pipe is a good mod! Or some suspension mods! There's so many things but so little money!! Lmao.

Suspension would be my choice.
You could do springs, bumpsteer and panhard for that kind of money.

Save up for some new shoes, bud. I know yours are plasti dipped, but the 17" OEMs really don't make the car stand out.

I would recommend going with some Suspension components or a set of Gears for that price range. Gears are going to be your best bang for the buck! They're going to give you a lot of low end grunt off the line and will definitely lower your ET's at the track. They're also perfect for street driving as well, your Mustang is going to accelerate much harder!

I hope this helps! Remember this is just a few suggestions, you really can't go wrong when buying a performance part for your Mustang. Let me know if you have any questions!

-Dan

I think for now, I'm going to get my appearance how I like, then soon after some gears and full exhaust.

What are y'all's thoughts on these rims on my car?

http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/pts/3928301348.html

Then some lowering springs and a boss 302 valance and splitter would go great.

I think they look OK! Better than the stockers IMO. & for that price that isn't bad at all!

I personally wouldn't buy them I think there not wide enough plus you would have to get adapters to fit these on your car, just my 2 cents.

Good thing you guys corrected me on the bolt pattern, that would've ended bad for me.

GET THAT DEAL NOW!!!!!!!! The axlebacks alone are worth more than half of the 900 ur gna spend so get it and you will not be disappointed, then sell whichever muffler u dont like. I would go with the borla bro better tone if u get that deal id be willing to buy one of the mufflers preferably the borla but they do sound better than roush so u decide

Yea I've heard that one! Wish I could hear it in person though. Videos don't do justice to some exhaust setups though.

And hey, the guys says its for a 13-14 mustang, but there isn't any difference between the 10-12 figment right?

If your going to do the suspension, do the whole thing a one time. New Springs, Shocks, Struts, Mounts, Rear and Forward Sway Bars and a Strut Tower Brace. If you going to do springs, might as well do the shocks and struts while your there.

Exhaust, Heavier Duty Rotors (Drilled and Cross Cut) and Better Pads.

Then wheel time. Anytime in between there, little things and then the engine.

Get Shorty Headers and the BBK Xpipe if thats the way u wanna go. I know with long tubes its just toooo much exhaust flow for tge roush that its too loud. I know this because I had those mufflers on my 3.7 when I first installed the long tubes
