Performance Gains?

Pretty much did everything appearance wise for now besides some minor accent painting. I wanna do some performance now. Before spring break or sooner I will have twin turbos probably 64mm.(still haven't picked a kit). Currently I have a bama tune, Roush axlebacks and a k&n CAI. What should I purchase as of now that will give me some gains and also parts I can do now that I'll need when I get the turbos. It's a 2013 5.0 manual. Coming from the truck building game, performance is all new to me. Thanks for any advice.

Thank you. She's almost done with appearance. Building my custom lights, painting calipers, some interior paint, and engine paint.

OP-That's a great setup you're working with! What kind of spoiler are you running? As per needed mods if you're just on springs I would definitely check out a set of Rear Lower Control Arms to help get the power down, Subframe Connectors as well to aid with stability, and if you haven't already done so have a Panhard Bar picked up so you can get your axle in line! After this I might look into a different set of rear tires, potentially drags to keep the car on the ground. Aside from the aforementioned i would take a look into overhauling your braking setup (You don't necessarily need to shoot for a big brake kit) but pads, rotors, and lines would be a must!

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions and I'm here to help!

I'm running the pre painted gt500 spoiler from y'all. About 98% of the parts on my car are from your website. Great parts 👍. I'm going to look into suspension upgrades now. I've been reading into the turboed stangs and people say it's a good idea to beef those up. And yeah my tires need to be bigger also. 305s? I'm on the h&r super sports. Was worried about rubbing so I got the wheel package with 285s. I also looked at brakes. I've seen gt500 brembo brake kits for like $1200.
Those should be plenty huh.

Thanks for the advice!

I knew that looked familiar and thanks for the feedback we appreciate it! Regarding the 305 what size wheel are you running out back? The Big Brake Kits can literally be life saving but I think for a fraction of the cost you could overhaul your existing setup. Very welcome as well, I'm always around to help!

20x10 on the back. I don't like the stretched tire look at all. Maybe I need an 11.5-12" wide tire. I have the gt brakes now. Was thinking of doing rotors and pads now. Recommend any kits?

With a 20x10 I would stick with the 295-Ive seen an read people with varying setups get away with this, but any large I would be concerned about rubbing under load. Regarding the setup I think Power Stop's Pad and Rotor Kit would help out a lot paired with Ford Racing's Boss Line kit

Awesome. I'll probably order those brakes this week! Definitely something I want now haha. And I think I'll be safe with a 305/30r20. According to http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/tir...0r20-305-30r20 it's only a little fatter and the other dimensions are so little it won't rub. I have plenty of room with the 285s even with a panhard I'll have a good .5-1" gap from being flush with the fenders.
