If you don't have kids you can get a rear seat delete kit.

3.73 gears would be nice. 4.10's with a s/c you pretty much wouldn't have a first gear.

What gears do you have now? If you're going with FI in the near future I wouldn't go shorter (higher number) than 3.55's. in fact I would recommend 3.31's

Why not do a MT 275-40-19 for the front? Those 9" wide rims can handle it.

Also breathers over the JLT catch can anyday.

Yea I would keep the 3.15's and I didn't even notice that you didn't have a catless midpipe, I'd go for one of those next, and also the boss intake

Maybe a TB if you're trying to squeeze out every last NA horsepower but not necessarily on a FI application

Throttle bodies are better for FI

How long before you get your Procharger.

The 4.10 gears are fun. You can go back to 3.15 when you go FI. But for now I say change the gears. My car feels sooo much faster now with 4.10

There are a bunch of Paxton guys running 10's still on stock throttle body. Throttle body is hard to upgrade effectively on the coyote motor

I have been told by a couple people here in Vegas that Long tube headers even though they are an improvement its not worth the money to have them done. I have been told that these new mustangs are coming out of factory with more or less short tube headers already. I have been told that hi flow x-tube cats are worth the money though.

LOL what? High flow cats won't net you much gain on the coyote, maybe 1-2HP. Removing the cats is what gets you gains on this motor which can be 15-20HP. Also changing short tube headers to other short tube headers is pointless, long tube headers are worth the money.

Yea you'll generally see about 15-20 hp gain from catless midpipe and only about 10-12 hp gain from LT's

Then there's really no reason to even mess with your exhaust anymore, unless you do LT's with high flow cats, but you need to be careful because FI will often times burn up the cats too
