2010 ford mustang gt

I just bought a '10 GT and put a cold air intake in it. Looking to see what other options I have to boosting HP and torque. Not to knowledgable like others on here about cars but trying to learn. Any suggestions?

Best place to start is a hand held tuner. Headers were my favorite mod on the 4.6

What tuner do you suggest? I keep hearing good things about Bama. But I also heard I should wait till I'm all done with making mods. And what headers?

You need a tuner to get the most from your mods, I like Brenspeed. On the headers, I think the pypes ss are hard to beat for the money. Ppl gona chime in on the quality, all I can say is the set I had were top quality. I'm a welder and the welds were perfect and so was the fit.

Since you already have the CAI Get a tuner/gear combo 3:73 gears. That will be your best performance mod. should cost you about $1000 including gear install. You should see about a half a second maybe more taken off your quarter mile time.

1.) Some mods will make your engine run wrong without a tune least of which is the tripping of CEL (check engine light)

2.) The road to "done" is going to be potentially long and never ending. Tune for Life by BAMA or Steeda will allow you to get free retunes for new mods as you go.

3:73 gears give you better acceleration than the stock 3:31gears. Go to www.americanmuscle.com and check out the different gears and video's they have. It will help you decide. Your GT might have 3:73 gears already. I know they were the upgrade gear option for that year.

Ok so I looked into it and it looks like the 2010 did come with 3.73. I was looking at the 4.10. What's everyone else think?

If gas milage in no concern. I'm assuming it is low on you concern list since you bought the GT. Yes, Defiantly get the 4:10's your car will run like a raped ape!!!

I hated the 4.10s in my car. I was the only one that could drive it. Unless you take off aggressively every time, the car would buck and jerk. The appraiser killed it twice when I traded it. I had to drive the truck if I wanted a designated driver. There's a code on the driver's door jamb that will tell you what gears you have now. IMO 3.73s are the best for the 4.6

How... Do you defiantly get 4.10 and run like a raped ape? Besides I don't think a raped ape would run very well

I would respectfully recommend a Sct tuner and begin with bama or Steeda tunes. Both have free tunes for life program and are highly reputable companies. They both will not steer your wrong and do an excellent job tuning your car. Once you do get a tuner and done modding your car with bolt on mods, I strongly recommend getting an MPT tune as well. Just to have loaded up in the SCT and add to the arsenal of your tunes. MPT makes an awesome safe aggressive tune as well and costs 75 dollars for one tune. MPT does not give free tunes for life but do give you free revisions for 6 months.

Here are my dyno results for my 11 v6. I'm aware the OP has a 10 GT but the results would be similar in closeness between the tunes. The 10 GT would produce higher numbers but just wanted to show how comparable all three tunes were.

Ah, I'm glad you made this thread! 2010 GT here too. Already have a tuner and plan getting a CAI soon. Kinda don't know what else to get, guess I'll look into headers.

tc x 4, I want to keep my cats. What type of headers do I get? Shorties I'm guessing? Long tubes are for O/R systems right?

Ok so what's the difference between delete axle back and fatback exhaust? Looks like they both would give me the same amount of horse power and sound the same but ones cheaper then the other......

From my understanding:

A 'muffler delete' replaces the mufflers (also called axle-backs, or anything from the rear axle and back) with straight-through pipes usually with nice polished tips.

A 'cat-back system' replaces all of the pipes starting from the catalytic converters and back (i.e. x-pipe, mid-pipes, and axle-backs).

Don't expect much gains from just a set of axle-backs. They'll reduce weight (stockers are quite heavy), but airflow is still pretty good with the stock mufflers I believe. I wouldn't recommend muffler deletes, uncontrolled sound will be loud but not 'tamed'. Just my $0.02.

Cat back exhaust will be mandrel bent, meaning the bends will be a lot smoother for better air flow. Unless your a serious racer ther a waste of money. They come alive on the big end more.

Lol. No, that was actually the mod I was going for when I let someone talk me into doing the o/r x pipe instead. At first I hated the way it sounded with the outlaws but now I love it.

With the o/rx you can always add the LT's, one less thing to buy.

You will gain really nice power with a pair of long tube headers to go with your sweet off road x pipe.

If you want big power get a BLOWER/SUPERCHARGER this will take you from 300 hp
to 600 HP or around 500 RWHP for about 8k not cheap but BIG power never is....
that's what I did. Any more than 600 hp and you will have to go forged internals for safety reasons.
