Got a couple mods, what's next?

I bought my car about two years ago, it's a 2012 V6 Mustang Club of America. I have an airaid CAI, Ford Racing Catbacks, shift kit and a performance chip. Want some more mods to bring up my hp and torque but I'm not sure where to go from here. Any tips are welcome.

Doesn't add power but gears would be a good mod.


Pick your poison.

Tuner will help wake it up. Lots of good ones: bama, mpt

I believe the op simply meant tuner. They use to be called chips before they were handheld units(tuner)

My car is a mix of the performance package and the mca. So it has the best of both packages. It's got the 19" pp wheels not the 18"mca just as an example.

Nice looking car. I want to find out how many cars were made like mine from factory. I'm guessing not many.

I thought I would like the glass roof but it really limits me to the stripes I can put on the car lol. I want to rip off the mca banner and do something else but I can't do the roof or it would look out of place.

I'm keeping the MCA stripe and grill. Only thing that really shows it being a MCA..lol. Ford show parts is supposed to have MCA certificates. They just haven't produced them for the '14 yet. They have them for 11-13

Ya I just need to get one printed for my car.

I can order a replacement mca sticker so I'm not worried about it. Not a huge fan of the stripe to be honest

Work on your suspension first. The car will perform better with more HP and the Suspension will make it handle better. Tune will help now and an aluminum driveshaft with the speed rev turned off.

Yeah I would love mine a lot more if it was white. Really limits me on what stripes I can put on my car. Wanted some white racing stripes but I feel like it would clash.

I did stripes and I think that if you do like stripes then it's one of the biggest appearance mods per dollar that transform the look of your Mustang and renew that feeling that you own an awesome car. The stripes also tend to cause more people to notice and compliment your Mustang.
My 3M gunmetal metallic stripes were around $500. That may be more or less than others have paid but to me the price quote and finished product were well worth how I like the way it looks now.
Not done yet of course. Saving up for 20" staggered wheels in charcoal grey. If you don't already have the nicer style and size factory wheels, it's also a complete transformation to the overall look of your Mustang. Unfortunately its a more expensive mod to pursue.
I have respect for all of you that already worked hard, saved and have been able to get wheels that make you stare at your own car.
I sincerely hate my factory silver 18" wheels but I made a commitment to myself to only do quality mods even if it means having to wait and save until Spring for the wheels and tires instead of making them black temporarily with plastidip. I would not feel good about that.

Not too many bolt-ons for the 3.7 before you have to star dishing out $$$.

I'd say definitely make sure your tune is right. If you've got an off-the-shelf tune (SCT) or popular conservative email tune (Bama, Steeda, etc.) go with someone like MPT. The tune is huge.

Other than that, LT headers + catted mid-pipe or boost. // suspension, shifter, gears, etc.

Better tune if you have a canned tune right now. Then suspension suspension suspension. There are power adders for the 3.7 as well. Problem is the turbo kits are from shops that may or may not give you the best product in the world and the Procharger is not exactly world beating. Nitrous may be the best option currently...
