First mod for better throttle response

I am a new Mustang owner; I bought a 2014 base model V6 because it was dirt cheap. Now I want to start with mods, one at a time, and pay incrementally for power gains. The car runs great, good power, fun...but it is slow off the block. What's a good first mod for < $500 to improve throttle response? Thanks for any info.

Yup. Gears and a tune. That's not under 500 dollars though. But until you get rid of those airplane gears you won't be accelerating anywhere quickly

+1 for gears/tune, although I'd go 3.55/3.73 instead of 4.10 if you want to enjoy driving anywhere other than a 1/4 lol
