Pick my next mod

Well I'm ordering my rear window louver but have 400 left as mod money so far performance wise I have o/r pipe ,flowmaster, bama tune , and intake .
Was thinking
Cs chin spoiler with boss splitter
3.73 gears
Barton shifter
Uca lca

Between those pick one and tell me why you would . The gear would probably be the most beneficial but my mpg is already 13mpg driving like a jack off lol

Lca's are important in reducing wheel hop. If you are lowered then UCA's will help return your alignment and help with wheel hop even more so. If it means anything at all, I have the billet ford racing LCA's on a otherwise stock suspension and have no wheel hop.

Well if you are extremely lowered as you say you need an adjustable panhard bar, camber plates, relo brackets and UCA's bad then otherwise your goin to tear up those new tires.

Also, my buddies 2011 gt is procharged with a 6MT and 3:55s and his car will run 10s all day when he can hook up.

I would recommend the uca lca, if these cars lack anything it's in the suspension.

Absolutely, these cars do not lack power or looks, only the ability to put that power to the ground. The control arms will help with that a lot. It will help stop wheel hop and allow you to more effectively plant the tire to the ground

Buy all BMR, Steeda, or Whiteline parts. And do it all at once. LCA'S, UCA & Mount, LCA Relo's, and a Adjustable Panhard Bar. Do it right the first time, even if it means saving for another month. Your car deserves it.

Think about it this way... It all has to come apart anyway, so u will be doing the same labor like 2-3 times which means more labor$$ and time... So u might as well slowly start collecting the parts and put it all together at one time

+1. My point exactly. It doesn't make sense to buy a bunch of cheap parts that you can throw on right away. When if you buy quality parts, collect everything you need over the course of weeks or months. And then put it all together at one time, the reward is much greater. Either way, it's your car. Just my 2cents

I think all of these mods are a must have on the 10+ Mustangs! If you're looking to add more power, obviously the 3.73's are our only performance mod here.

However, Gears, Barton Shifter and Suspension is just as important! You'll notice a huge difference in drive ability from these mods. I would recommend doing whatever mod you want to do first because I imagine they'll all be on the car at some point anyway !

Let me know if you have any questions or need some assistance! Our Mustang Experts are here Monday-Friday from 9AM-9PM EST and Saturdays from 9AM-5:30PM EST. If you want to hit them up, their number is 866.727.1266. I can also have one of them call you directly.

"So they can't be that bad" is not a motto that will ever be used describing parts for my car. You get what you pay for, every time.

You don't need the UCA mount, but if your doing all that, it just makes sense to add that in as well. Eliminate all variables and weak points in the rear. Highly advisable. And any brackets would work with the j&m control arms.

Check out the actual BMR website... I actually got mine from there during a Christmas special, I got a pretty good package deal... I'm not sure if there's any specials but its worth a look

Ya there a lot but there very good. That's all they do is drive line work. I will see when I go there if I can get abetter price but wont push too much as I want them to do a good job.

I'm having them weld my axle shaft also so I may get a deal on that.
