Hey is this a daily driver? If it's a weekend car then I'd say steep gears and working on a good launch would do more for you than just HP numbers.
But if it's a daily driver then gears will kill you at the pump, it would be way more cost effective to trade it in on a 5.0 that gets well over 26 mpg on the highway with over 400 hp.
Besides, doing all those bolt ons on a 5.0 would get you close to 500 hp at the crank.
If not just get a blower and be done with it
2008 4.0 SOLD (I will miss my first stang forever)
2011 5.0 black on black with 3.73 manual
and I still get over 26 mpg
