Thanks in advance
Welcome to MustangEvolution and to the Mustang world! You'll meet a lot of great people and find a ton of awesome reads on this forum. Get out there and enjoy it! Let us know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future.
First things first, Congratulations on the awesome pick up! Post up some pictures of your Mustang we would love to check it out. As far as mods go, it sounds like you're already on a great track. CAI and a Bama tune is the two most beneficial mods you can do for any Mustang. How are you enjoying your Bama tune so far?
You're heads in the right spot with the 3.73 gears. Besides a CAI and Tuner combo a set of gears is the next best thing. You'll notice a huge increase in torque and acceleration. I think ordering my car with 3.73's is the best option I picked.
A throttle body is a good modification also. However, for a simple bolt on car or basically stock car it won't have many benefits. These are really a platform mod and don't start to shine until you get into full bolt-ons or a power adder. You won't notice big power gains but you'll definitely notice a huge increase in throttle response and engine noise.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance in the near future!
