New 5.0 Owner/Comments on First Mods

I've owned my 5.0 for almost two months and am ready for my first wave of mods. I am very new to this car and it's my first mustang. I would appreciate any commentary on the modifications I have chosen to put on the car. Here they are:

1) Steeda CAI
2) Steeda X4 Tuner
3) GT-500 Style Axle Back Exhaust
4) Pypes Off Road H-Pipe
5) Steeda Ultra Light Springs
6) Steeda Panhard Bar
7) Steeda Upper & Lower Control Arms
8) Steeda Heavy Duty Front Strut Mounts
9) Steeda Sway Bar Kit (front & rear)

I went from a 2007 mazdaspeed 3 to my new mustang. The two cannot even be compared! Thank you to whoever gives me their opinion on the mods I've chosen for my car.

Same question as above ^

Also, what do you want from the car? Cornering? Drag racing? Just a nicer DD/ weekend warrior?

My car is an automatic, it is my daily driver. I will be taking it to the track sometimes to drag race and wanted to improve it's cornering ability. I want to open the hp in the car up, but not go too crazy yet.

I would skip the sway bars. The stock ones are pretty good and the money can be well spent somewhere else.

So pretty much an all around good car. In that case I'd start with basic stuff like:

Custom tune (not canned)
Lowering springs
Adj. Panhard bar
Lower control arms
Aluminum 1 piece driveshaft
Adj. upper control arm
Converter

And definitely tires, all of your mods are pointless if you don't have a good set of tires.
