Re: I am Ready to mod my 2010 GT

You're going to want to first decide what you want to do with the car. Is it going to be a daily driver, a weekend cruiser, or am *** kicking track car? Your mods will be based off this decision. Certain mods can conflict with each other, and there's no sense in wasting money on things you don't need. For example, you're not going to want underdrive pulleys if you supercharge...superchargers usually run off the stock pulley.

Also do you want a stock looking GT with a ton of performance mods, or do you want to balance styling and performance out? Wheels really make or break the appearance of a mustang, but some aftermarket wheels can be significantly heavier than the stock ones...all things to consider.

If you're leaning towards a mildly modded daily driver or weekend car, exhaust, CAI, gears, and a tune are some good mods to start with. These will help you out in the power/quickness department. Lowering springs, CC plates, shocks/struts, brakes upper/lower control arms...all good supporting mods in addition to those power mods.

As I said before exhaust is always a good starter mod. It'll give you a slight boost in hp and much improved sound over stock...a CAI is another good mod. Usually on the newer models 05-10's a tune is required for the CAI, so as DDTCM suggested look into a custom place like Bamachips or VMP Tuning.

American Muscle is a great place to check out. Great products, great prices, free shipping, plus they are a site sponsor.

John at NQS will get you sorted out with suspension/braking, also a site sponsor: (you can PM him with any questions, he's good about responding)

Re: I am Ready to mod my 2010 GT

^^^^ I agree American Muscle is a great site when shopping for parts.They are cheap,fast and have excellent customer service,but if you are going to do a Cai and tuner deff go with a custom tuner like Bamachips (my personal choice) Brooks or any other custom tuners.For $30 more you can have a much better tune then from A.M.

if you wish to keep your warranty then do an axle back and lower it not much else you can do but perhaps a pulley for your crank~ anything else requires a tune and that voids warranty

Re: I am Ready to mod my 2010 GT

the 2011 will be 412hp/390tq vs the 2010 315hp/300~ tq and the weight will be right about the same. The 2011 should be a good bit quicker stock for stock. However, you already have the 2010 so no point in not enjoying that to see if you can get out of it what you like.

My friend had an 08 gt, basically the same thing power wise. He has 310-320rwhp with pulley, intake, exhaust, and a tune (from bamachips.com) over the stock 260rwhp.
