Top 3 Performance Parts

What are the top 3 performance parts that will give the most'gains' to our mustang GTs?
Which will give the most HP/TQ.

Note: No supercharger, or Nitrous or anything like that. Just Bolt on parts $1000 or less.
Thanks, Trevor

Would it possibly be LT Headers,
Tune, X-Pipe? or Boss/Cobra Jet Manifold?

Will make you much faster and more fun to drive if its an auto. Hard to explain what it does...basically say you have a 3200 stall...when you hammer it the rpm sill go straight to 3200 instead of 1500 like the stock converter.

It's the automatic version of a clutch. It would benefit you to look up a picture of a cutaway section to understand how it works if you are interested. The number before the word "stall" basically means the converter will slip up to that rpm. A higher stall results in a harder launch due to increased launch point. At some point you end up with a car that is hard to drive anything but "balls out" because you have to spin the engine up to 4k+ RPM just to get the car moving.

In no way should this be taken literally in mechanical terms--it's just a very general expression of what's going on with torque converters.

when I'm working raking in cash. a little transmission problem that (80%) under warranty isn't a problem! Haha. More focusing on a Cobra Jet intake W/ Throttle Body&CAI, Longtube headers, Offroad X pipe & a Tune. 😜 Car should be back at my place within the next 72 hours. Saves me about $100 in gas there from dd πŸ™ˆπŸΈβ˜•οΈ

A lot of Suggestions here are good, I recommend changing your Rear End Gears. That will give you a Noticeable difference. I changed mine to 4.10s.

I heard 3.73s are better than 4.10s for the streets, opinions?

3.73s are good, not a problem. 4.10s do have a few drawbacks. You can't go wrong with the 3.73s.

You have a 3v with 100 less horsepower and a different transmission. So it's not even remotely the same thing now is it?

No Problem "Repth", but in Truth it is Amazing how much and how different Ford did with the changing around of the Mustangs. You are pretty much at the point where they are all totally different and you can't Swap anything around on them.

Actually no he's not. He's talking about a totally different thing there in case you hadn't noticed.

Yeah, I did notice. You're just always an *** hole. The guy is trying to be helpful, and while he may have been less than helpful in that particular post, I can't help but feel like you were way too rude (like normal).

I call out B.S. When I see it in case someone else gets the wrong idea. And name calling is not permitted here. You'll learn soon enough.

Yeah, but you know you're overtly rude when you point out mistakes. There's no denying that. Make no mistake, I'm not personally attacking you. I just call 'em like I see 'em. I've seen many people express this same sentiment to you.

And yet I get daily PM's from guys looking for advice. So apparently some are looking for my knowledge/experience.
