What would you do?

You wake up one morning with a 2014 mustang v6 w/ appearance package that has an x4 tuner and borla s type axle back installed (everything else stock, no performance pack etc).

You are then dragged out of bed and told to get on your computer and open every aftermarket mustang part website you know of.

Once that is complete, $1,200 is added to your bank account (not a penny more). What would YOU do to your car. (Incl. rough installation prices in to your $1,200 budget for anything mechanically advanced)

Headers, mid pipe and then suspension work. I.e. springs, struts, shocks, Panhard bar, LCAS and relocation brackets. Camber bolts, strut tower brace. All that will run you pretty close to 1200, but they're things that you can do pretty easily yourself provided you have time.

1200 is your limit? With labor included. Save it not enough to do anything worthwhile on your 3.7 besides a email tune

Gears,Driveshaft
Gears and driveshaft with tune will be faster then all other bolt on mods combined besides FI.

Concentrate on a complete suspension setup, getting her done all at once would be sweetest thing. That $1200 would be just the ticket when Steeda has their 20% discount sales

Go back to bed, since the Internet is open 24 hours a day.

I believe you win, especially if you keep the tuner and marry it to the 5.0 instead.
