What more could I do?

Hey guys, I'm new here and this is my first time posting a thread, so be nice if I happen mess up or anything :p. So anyway, I have a 2013 v6 auto with an air raid intake, bbk long tubes, off road x-pipe, 3:73's, lowered it 1'5 inch, and have a 93 octane bama tune. My question is, what more can I do? I really want to turbo, but I dot have the money for it. Is there any other mods that i can do to improve my performance? Thanks.

First off welcome!!!!

Well there's a couple more things but some people would suggest not to.

You can get the BBK throttle body. From what I heard it will increase throttle response and get retune for it and it'll make it worth your money.

If you don't want dump 4 bills on that you can get the TB spacer. (Which will not work with the BBK TB) I have the spacer and it gave me some low end torque plus a whistle when I take off. Sounds sweet. Lol.

You can also get the coils but idk of you'll see any gains from a NA car.

Also a 1 piece driveshaft would be a great addition.

Unless you want to go with a suspension set up next?

LCAs,UCAs, Braces and swaybars.

Other than those things I believe your maxed out till you go turbo/procharged.

Unless someone else here can offer more options that I forgot. Lol

Welcome to MEVO! Post up some pictures of your Mustang, we'd love to check it out.

Silverbullet definitely made some great points. It sounds like you have the basic bolt ons and are off to a great start! I would probably start to lean towards the suspension. It doesn't really matter how much power you have if you can't put it down to the ground! I would recommend throwing on a set of Upper and Lower Control Arms, a Pan hard bar and a 1-piece driveshaft. This will make a huge difference with weight transfer, traction, reduce wheel up and will help with acceleration as well!

This is just a few recommendations! Feel free to hit me up if you have any questions or need some assistance.

-Dan

Have you tried it? I still have mine on since I bought it and it does as it says. I could feel (not much) but a slight difference in my low end. Mpg stayed about the same but could see a difference on my highway cruising.

Not saying you NEED to buy it but only way is to try it out on your own and you can make the call on it.

There's you problem it doesn't fit the BBK TB. It's made for the stock tb.

For $20 I'd buy it too. I've been thinking about using one as a plate system fir nitrous. Or at least try to make one, but not willing to spend what they are asking for one new!

Lmao its useless all it does is make a whistle noise on the stock TB. U cant even use it with the BBK TB.

Why would u make a plate system when the Zex kit is an all in one system. I run it and its hidden so no one can see it and thats the way it should be. A stock looking air box with the nitrous port hidden
