Upper & lower control arms is where I'd start. Tuner is a must once your ready to void the warranty.

If performance isn't your main concern, since I stock form these 5.0 have tons of power, the most noticable mod u will ever get that will always bring a smile to your face is definitely a set if axlebacks... That was my 1st mod when I got my car new and is still the most noticable mod I have, and I have plenty of mods... As far as what type, its up to u to google and YouTube exhausts since there is plenty of feedback on these... Good luck!!

LCA and UCA and get some wider rims and tires. Preferably summer tires minimum.

The chance of getting a bad install, isn't worth the risk imo. A lot of other things i'd do first before gears.

If you can find a good mustang only shop I wouldn't be worried. The one near me swaps gears all the time on the owners son's race car. Among all the customer installs they do.

Brand new car, if you're not going to be racing at the track a lot, than I wouldn't worry too much about performance or suspension upgrades. Maybe lowering springs, but I'd definitely go exhaust first. That's a must if you wanna hear that muscle car growl. Customize the appearance if you want to stand out a bit. A lot guys go right for suspension mods, but I don't race my car and I don't run high speeds on public roads, so other than getting rid of that nasty gap in the wheel well, I really don't need suspension mods.

I totally agree with gtstyles2. The exhaust is always my first mod on all the mustangs I've ever driven.
