New to Mustang Evolution

Hello Mustang Evolution Community! Well I've been a creeper since 2010 whenI bought my first GT and only now starting my own profile.

I just purchased a new 2014 GT so I've got the mod bug which lead me back to Evolution. As you can see in my sig I have already installed a few basic modswith more in route.

Coming from a 2010 GT w/Trackpack(CAI, Tune, axle-back) to a 2014 GTw/Trackpack was like night and day.

1st thing that stands out is the power increase. I really enjoyed my 2010 but felt It was lacking a good 100hp so the 2014 hits the spot. 2nd thing thatI noticed was the shifter feel. I haven't missed a shift but it is much too soft. 3rd is the handling. I felt much more connected to the road in my 2010 which gave confidence in aggressive driving. Hence the multiple suspension modsin the mail.

Mods I would like in the future: I would love to get a MGW shifter but Iwant to see what the Barton 2post bracket does first. After I get the current mods installed I may pull the trigger on UCA, new sway bars and koni shocks/struts if I'm not getting the handling I want.

Any recommendations for must have bolt-ons/upgrades?

Welcome officially to the scene. I just joined not too long ago myself with a 2014 GT/CS. Can't wait to do some modding myself.

How does a CAI do withe the vented hood? I imagine water would pour on it. An issue?

Just installed the Barton bracket and it made a really nice improvement in shift feel. Crazy how cheap the stock bracket is.
