Help with planning for v6 mods

I just bought my 2014 v6 and I was wondering what to save up for first, take the dive and go aspirated? Or get the bolt-ons first? This is my daily driver, but I am looking to race on the local tracks. It's the manual version if that matters. And as far as what parts I'm looking at here is my list if you are interested. And no I will not consider procharger. And this is deciding my first mod my second mod is going to be suspension no matter what, and with the turbo kit I am grabbing the Diablo InTune tuner. Trying to for the 450+ mark on e85. It's 1.57$/gal vs 2.09$/gal and you only lose 30% gas milage so i'm willing to take that tradeoff.

It makes sense to do supporting mods/ bolt on's first but you should really spend some time and plan out your build to avoid wasting money and only do bolt on's that will support the turbo when you add it if that is realistically your goal. Although I really can't think of a lot of supporting mods that these cars need before getting a turbo aside from exhaust. Just about everything else should be included in the kit, aside from suspension to hook.

A few things to consider:
1. If you buy the CAI now you will have to get rid of it when you put on the turbo.
2. Some turbo kits replace the manifolds which means you couldn't use headers. Although I believe another member on here said the added heat from the turbo caused the shortly headers to crack.
3. If upgrading the gears be sure to consider which would be ideal with the power that the car will have with the turbo. Most of what I read on here say 3.31's or 3.55's are ideal for forced induction and anything more is too much gear for the power.

Let me start by saying this; take whatever you think its going to cost you to turbo and double it, then decide if its still something you want to do - or, be honest with yourself - can do.

So I should just save up for turbo kit and get exhaust with that because it should be only needed support that wouldn't be included in the kit correct? Sorry if my questions are dumb lol.

Buy my turbo kit! Same on in that link, fully upgraded turbo. No injectors or heat blanket.

Brand new, that'd cost you 5250, as of now. The high bid on mine is 3750.


I've got my lpf turbo kit for the 3.7 mustang up for auction on ebay
Made 460whp on 10lbs.
Go check it out!

You need to get a driveshaft, injectors, and a dyno tune (preferably from LPF)
