Just get a roush rs3. If you get a base rs3 it'll cost you around 48k. I bet you could get a 13 for even cheaper.

Step 1. Pull the brand new motor out, do not drive with it other than to get it home.
Step 2. Sell it, hopefully you can fetch around $5,000 for it. Maybe more.
Step 3. Pull the brand new transmission out.
Step 4. Sell it, you could probably get $2500, maybe more.
Step 5. Pull the Rear end housing out.
Step 6. Sell everything that's inside of it and set it aside.
Step 7. Throw the factory driveshaft away. Lol.
Step 8. Completely gut every factory suspension piece brakes, including your brand new wheels and tires.
Step 9. Sell it all along with all your factory exhaust pieces for whatever someone is willing to give you.

At this point, you won't have much of a car left. But trust me, it will be ok. If you followed steps 1-9 correctly, along with the $16,000 you already have, you should have about $8,000-$10,000 more. Bringing your total for mod money up to....
Anybody....
Bueller...
Bueller.
That's right, $24,000-26,000. We will just call it $25,000. So if you have completed steps 1-9 and are not afraid to continue. Proceed to step 10.
This is where the fun begins.
Step 10. Buy this:
Ford Racing 5.0LMustang 4V DOHC Aluminator Crate Engine for Supercharged Applications (11-14 GT) M-6007-A50SC - Free Shipping!
Step 11. Buy this:
TREMEC MAGNUM XL S197 CONVERSION COMPLETE KIT (also Includes Driveshaft,Clutch & Flywheel options) - Justin's Performance Center
Step 12. Buy everything needed to build up the rear end housing. New Differential, Axles, gear set, watts link, have the rear welded and braced, etc... To fully build the rear you should be looking at about $2,000-2,500.
Step 13. Buy this:
2005 - 2014 Mustang GT | Handling Performance Packages | KHP009 - Koni Handling Performance Package (Level 4) | BMR Suspension - The Leader in High Performance Suspension & Chassis
And this:
2005 - 2014 Mustang GT | Control Arm Packages | CAP003 - Rear Control Arm Package (level 3) | BMR Suspension - The Leader in High Performance Suspension & Chassis
Step 14. Buy this:
Wilwood Superlite Mustang Front Brake Kit (05-14 All) 140-9109-DR - Free Shipping!
And this:
Wilwood Superlite Mustang Rear Brake Kit (05-14 All) 140-9221-DR - Free Shipping!
Step 15. Assemble
Step 16. Wheels and tires, Buy these:
Staggered Gloss Black Forgestar CF5 Monoblock Mustang Wheel & Mickey Thompson Tire Kit - 19x9/10 (05-14 All) KIT||29616||29617||79539||79540 - Free Shipping!
Or a quality variation of that
Step 17. The icing on the cake, BUY THIS:
Mustang 5.0 (2011) Supercharger Kit
Go with the 3.6LC Mammoth, you won't regret it
Step 18. Full Exhaust, headers, xpipe, 3" OTA Pipes, quad tip gt500's if you like. Whatever.
Step 19. All the little stuff, cooling, hoses, brake lines, whatever. After all this stuff you should be spent and brake pretty much even.
Step 20. Enjoy your potentially 1,000rwhp handle on rails sounds like the devil himself freaking monster of a car, the way it should have been.

Good luck!
Have you done any of these mods yourself or gone thru a process that is at all similar? If not I would refrain from giving this kind of guidance.... cause its bad.

No, I have not ever done anything to this extent. Yes, I have done some of these mods myself. And yes, I would love to have the opportunity to undertake a project of this caliber. I know my guidance isn't great, it was simply a idea. But bad, I won't agree. If I had a brand new mustang shell and $25k this is the direction I would go or one very similar. I'd work from the ground up and try my hardest to get the most bang for my buck. This was literally thrown together in 5 minutes to give the OP a idea of what could be possible. I know I left a lot out, I'm sure there'd be added expenses, but I'll be damned if I would blow $16k on cosmetic, engine bolt ons, power adders, and whatever.
I would start from scratch and replace or fix the weak points in the car. Engine, trans, rear, suspension, brakes, wheels and tires, then boost.
I should have been a lot more detailed, given costs and expenses, labor estimates, foreseeable problems, tuning, a explanation of why I chose each part I listed, did more research as to what each part on the car sold as a new take off can fetch, but I didn't. And I apologize for that.
So now I have to ask, and I'm sure others are thinking the same thing. What would you do with $16k and a brand new car? Answer while keeping in mind that most of us don't have the relationships you have in the industry or are lucky enough to get parts at cost.

I have a lot of respect for you Jason and I am in no way trying to bash you and I am not offended in even the slightest to your reply.

Lol, sorry. I really didnt mean to offend, just the most I could patiently text over my phone. I was wrong by saying the advice was bad but your advice can be somewhat misleading. I fully believe in buying from a company where you are able to learn from. No offense to AM but you dont get that. L&M/ livernois/ RGR are some sample companies that when you buy from them you're not just buying an engine.... you're getting their expertise as well. This is some of the reasons I offer some of these companies.
I don't know the capabilities of the OP but the labor involved IF he is unable to do himself is almost the cost of the parts listed itself.

But seriously, I do apologize for the short and negative response I made to your post.... I shouldn't have done that. When I have time and access to computer I'll list out some possibilities. If the OP has the ability to do the labor himself 16k will get him very, very far.

I totally agree, I tried to hint around to the fact that's there's better prices and companies out there. These were just more or less to show what's out there and how far your dollar could go.
Like I said Jason, you didn't offend me. It just seemed like a awful short unlike you reply. My skin is thick brother. At least I didn't recommend On3 turbos. Lol

All joking aside, I'm sure I speak for a lot of people here in saying. I look forward to your ideas.

First off, thank you guys so much, tons of fantastic info here!

What are my goals? As farcical as this sounds, to have fun!

Up until a few months ago I was making a sad 85k a year, now I have the funds to make a dream car with my grandpa. If the car is 700rwhp or 1,200rwhp, I will still love the car and consider this project a success.

In regard to being able to do the work myself, no. I will have help, my knowledge is minimal but I do have friends of the family who have been working on cars for years.

My reasoning for asking you guys was the family friends tend to build not street legal cars and just produce drag cars to haul around in a truck, something I do not want.

Everyone has been giving very detailed answers and I appreciate that, thank you for taking the time!

You just put your foot in your mouth!

Sad, really. Me and my wife combined don't clear 85k. I guess we're pretty sad, not much fun down here being pisspoor lower middle class, huh? Wtf,

To hell with you, your car, and your grandpa.

GTFO

I really don't know what to say DWC, I did miss punch a button which resulted in the 8 instead of the 5. I should work on me editing skills, therefore I will not make these horrible mistakes again. I never meant to degrade anyone, I have always been middle class.

So for a correction post, I use to make 55k which is not enough to build a car how I would like too since I have a short period of time. Once again, I apologize. I will leave you guys alone now.

+1. Id also LOVE to make $85k a year.

Edit- even making $55k is considered good for some of us.

I never meant to upset anyone. Yes, using the word "sad" inregards to any salary is going to sound bad. I was just clearly stating that I once did not have the funds and now I do. That is all. But based on the answers I have been given you guys have more then enough knowledge and skill to achieve that type of money!

And this why I don't associate with new mustang owners... Bunch of snobby pricks. He said a sad 85k "corrected yes" but why the hate all the sudden? The man probably works his *** off and your simply jealous...

If you want that kind of money, your only going to get it one way...

To the OP, I also came into about 15k dollars to rebuild my old mustang. I will also be doing it from the ground up and I strongly encourage you do the same. I however, will be spending the time with close friends instead of family. Good luck with the build!

Haha people are jealous because you are banking man! More power to you! If you made millions then that would be good for you, and I would totally respect that. If you made 18k working at mcdonalds all year I would say the same. Getting mad someone makes more money than you is childish. Good luck with your build man, I know if I had 16k to blow on my car id probably just sit in the corner sucking my thumb trying to decide what to do. I make plenty also, because I went to college 6 years to do so, but my cars aren't my only toys. Until I pay a couple other things off, I won't be putting that much into my 5.0.

55k is not chit, the op was not arrogant or putting anyone down in any way shape or form, why the hate all of a sudden. If I was making 55k, I damn sure wouldn't be putting 16k into mods. 55k is barely making a living. To those that don't make that kind of money, quit shopping at Wal-Mart and buying cheap imports, or quit *******g.

+1 I can't imagine my income being 55k. If it was...I wouldn't be spending it on car parts. I don't understand why people choose to work for next to nothing. A combined income of 85k is next to nothing as well. That'll get you a house, two new average cars and probably pay the bills and have a little extra cash each month. Throw in kids and you're pinching pennies.

Hmm, I'm going to pretend there was nothing insulting about this.

Not everyone has a college education making excellent money, and it also depends on what part of the country you are in as to how much you make in large part due to cost of living but also dependent upon how high of a demand there is for a particular trade, skill, or specialization.

Some people suffice off a combined 40k per year with 4 kids and some make it off 20k per year with 5 kids... Ask me how I know

And before I get some idiot in here talking about how I must be on welfare using govt money to buy my mustang and parts, I'm talking about when I was a young child

I agree 100%. Not everyone can make $100k a year... And those who do should not be making comments about how they "would never work for $55k". Thats arrogant, and pity. Good for you if you make that kind of money, but they guy in the state over may think $55k is alot of money, and is going to bust his *** for that and put food on the table every night. Just incase anyone was wondering, yes i do make more than $55k, but i would NEVER look down upon, or condensed someone who didn't.

To the OP, no hard feelings. I would love to have $16k to blow on mods. Good luck with your build.

Agreed, I don't think the OP meant any harm by what he said, I think he was just happy with recent live situations, but others have crossed the line with such an arrogant attitude

Oh for sure. I think the op just used poor wording haha. Other comments (not gonna name any names and start a war) made after the fact have been plain out arrogant and condescending.

Just incase anyone was wondering, yes i do make more than $55k, but i would NEVER look down upon, or condensed someone who didn't.

To the OP, no hard feelings. I would love to have $16k to blow on mods. Good luck with your build.
If you have to bust your *** to out food I. The table, you should be buying mustangs or parts for them.

I'm not saying 55k is bad...I just can imagine spending money on cars and parts at that wage, especially with a family.

Not everyone has a college education making excellent money, and it also depends on what part of the country you are in as to how much you make in large part due to cost of living but also dependent upon how high of a demand there is for a particular trade, skill, or specialization.

Some people suffice off a combined 40k per year with 4 kids and some make it off 20k per year with 5 kids... Ask me how I know

And before I get some idiot in here talking about how I must be on welfare using govt money to buy my mustang and parts, I'm talking about when I was a young child
My point was that 55k isn't an income I would be comfortable with while owning and modding a mustang. I'm glad to see you weren't blowing money on car parts when you made 40k.

I agree to that point . You need to have you're priorities straight, but there were some pretty arrogant things said about a $55k salary.

Remember all Pony cars were made for all classes of income and types of people. I look forward to his build. I read daily on this forum and have gained knowledge and insight to my car.

The only thing I said was that I couldn't imagine making 55k. I personally wouldn't be able to stay afloat. I also said I don't understand why people work for next to nothing. A combined 85k is next to nothing in miami at least.

I agree...the people that don't think they can make 100k a year, don't make 100k a year and never will. You don't need a college degree to make six figures. You need to be smart, confident and have an internal drive to succeed. That's it!

Where I live, that is not the case. But I agree to an extent. I wouldn't make anywhere near what I make in my field of work where it not for a degree.

Be careful with hellion turbos, they have been known to blow motors due to back pressure issues. Supposedly that was only on the single kit and has already been fixed but I would still remain very cautious
