2014 Mustang...Next Mods?

I just got finished installing some new mods on the 14 GT. I have the following:

-Boss Intake Manifold, Airaid CAI, SCT X4 with Bama 93P tune
-Corsa After-Cat X Pipe, Roush Axlebacks
-Roush Xtreme Lowering Springs, Roush Upper/Lower Control Arms, BMR Strut Tower Brace
-SVE Drift Wheels with 285/35 MT Street Comp Rears
-Barton Short Throw with Bracket

Looking for what to do next? I'm thinking of going with a Paxton towards the end of the year, but I may decide to go the turbo route. Therefore I'm not looking at doing Long Tubes until I make that decision.

I like the idea of a nitrous setup, but I honestly don't go to the track enough to need it.

Only thing that comes to mind right now are some Koni Adjustable Shocks; feel these would really help with traction and give me a better ride on the street when I'm just cruising.

Any ideas/suggestions are appreciated.

I'm planning on going with AED in the following weeks. Just installed the Boss Manifold last week...went to datalog and AM sent the wrong cable for the laptop to tuner. So I'm waiting on them to send the right cable.

Good looking car. And good choice on making the switch

Thank you! And yeah, I knew before I ordered, I'd be switching tunes.

I always thought the boss intake took away substantial bottom end making long tubes nescessary? Have you found that to be the case when driving it?

An AED tune will make a huge difference. Good move.

OP,

I'm sorry to hear about the inconvenience and trouble-I'm not entirely sure how that managed to have been picked in our warehouse incorrectly and I apologize about the setback!

You're definitely on the right track and a Koni Strut and Shock kit would work hand in hand with the corresponding mods on your GT as they'll help the car squat that much more efficiently off the line. Something else I would look into would be a Panhard Bar. Not only is it going to help keep you on the track as well as further improve the traction but it's going to keep your axle centered.

I wanted to apologize about the error again and if you're to have another order placed with us shoot me a PM and I'll shoot you over our discount code as a token of our appreciation for your business.

-Alex
