Tune, boss IM and exhaust if you don't mind voiding warranty.

Also there are a number of handling packages from eibach, FRPP, BMR and others. Lowering springs, sway bar kits and shocks/struts and strut tower brace are pretty good for starters

Thanks! Is it posaible to get rid of the live rear axle and put independent wheel suspension? If so do you recommend i do it? Or does it just spoil the fun for a stang? Thanks

Anything is possible with the right amount of money... But it would be completely custom job and be really expensive

The live rear axle isn't as bad as it was in the past. That'd be one of the last things I would do. Money isn't an issue? Whipped charger, 1 7/8 American racing headers, off road x pipe, jpc over axle pipes with steeda axle backs, jlt passenger side oil separator, coil overs, some staggered wheels, one piece driveshaft, stage 3 clutch

If your looking for performance, i would start with some fake boss badges and a NOS sticker on the window. Now if you want handling, i recommend buying 3 extra spare tires and installing them at all 4 corners. Then maybe cut a coil or two out of the springs. She will handle likes shes on rails and probably put down an extra 25-29 Rwhp, easily.

I promise.

Re: New Stang. Mod Recomendations?

CAI and a tune would cost you around 600 bones or so. After that, exhaust...maybe an xpipe. After that, start working on suspension...no use having 400+ whp if you cannot control it.

If you got the 6 speed I'd get a mgw or Barton shifter it'll help from embarrassing yourself and get a tuner along with a free flowing air filter and full exhuast.

You forgot to mention that you can really lighten the chassis with some stick on carbon fiber pieces strategically placed on mirrors, wipers, console and soforth

Wow that went off topic lol. These are mods that I've done and have been really happy with. Airraid cold air intake, Barton short throw shifter and bracket(prob my favorite mod ) magnaflow street exhaust, eibach pro kit lowering springs, 25mm h&r wheel spacers on the rear (I wanted a staggered setup but love my stock wheels too much), and I will be putting on my aluminum one piece driveshaft, adjustable panhard bar, and bama tune on this weekend. If you do end up lowering it tho, I do recommend going ahead and getting the appropriate shocks/struts to go with your springs to prevent harshness in your ride
