Help With Mods

So I have a 2014 Mustang GT with track pack. My current mods are JLT CAI, Flowmaster Outlaw axle backs, and SVE lowering springs. What I want to do next is I am thing of doing LT Headers and Catted X pipes with a ZEX nitrous kit. Bang for your buck are these good power mods? I am also looking on doing the LCA and UCA to stop the wheel hop. What do ya think of these mods and what do you think I could get that would be a better?

you really can't beat the value of stainless power headers, also UCA, mount and LCA's I would simply look at BMR. I've ran multiple brands, BMR and Metco were the best UCA's out there.

Thanks, do you think with the LT headers and X pipes I will be able to hit 400 HP to the wheels?

Just headers and an X pipe? I doubt it, get a tune after, and maybe.

You'll need to run a tune anyways when going to headers, the front O2 sensors are brought back a little more and you'll need to turn the rear O2 sensors off. A tune is going to give you the most out of any set of headers.

You'll have to get a tune with headers like Jayman said, you'll hit 400 no problem w/ longtubes.

I have a full Bassani exhaust on my car with an Airaid CAI and Bama tune and my car made 411 rwhp and 383 rwtq on 91 octane fuel. The best part about the headers is the sound...it always brings a smile to my face.

Pretty sure he was talking about pay mustangz no attention. Dudes a troll that like maybe 3 people like/believe. Anyways, to the op, if your going to spend the money on all that, mine as well spend the money on a good tune and do something besides bama. Not saying they aren't good. Just saying they aren't the best. Check out AED, VMP, Steeda or Lund if you've got the money.

I've seen a GT dyno sheet CAI and dyno tune pull 402 to the tire. Our cars stock pull about 365-370 a tune alone will get you close to 400. But it also depends on your climate you live it too.

Are you set on a ZEX kit, or open to other options? I have a custom Nitrous Outlet nozzle kit and my car made 519 rwhp and 551 rwtq on a 100 shot with my Nano system. I also have all of the safety features in place like...colder spark plugs, fuel pressure safety switch, nitrous tune and a NOS progressive controller. I am set to spray between 3500-6500 rpm. The hit is really smooth but very noticeable. See link below.

See pretty much just a tune got over 400 to the wheels. The drop in and axlebacks give minimal hp at best. Nice pull bro.
