Fays2 Watts Link. For the money it has had the most dramatic effect on the way the car handles.

MGW Shifter/Blowfish bracket. Borla Touring Axle Backs would be a close second.

In the last week the following Mods were performed on my 04 GT:
1- CAI
2-BBK Offroad X-Pipe
3-Magnaflow Low Restriction Mufflers
4-Tower Support Brace
5- Welded Subframe Connectors
6- Hotchkis Lower Control Arms
7- Rear Gears changed to a 3:73 ratio
8- Numerous Cosmedic Mods which looked great but of course didn't affect performance
I drive the car the long way home last Friday afternoon about 15 miles to put some heat in the new gears and the road was pretty curvy. I didn't jerk it around but did accelerate pretty hard coming out of the curves and could immediately tell a difference in the handling and it pulled harder when I got on it a little. Saturday after lunch after asking a couple of questions here on the forum about tuning to which I got an almost immediate answer I went out to the shop and in about 20 minutes the 93% Shell Octane Race tuneup was complete. I picked my Brother up then my friend Bob who owns the Rod Shop and drive another five miles to a clear stretch of county that I refer to as my private test strip. I turned around and from a rolling start I nailed it and front end raised a little and the seat of your pants dyno told me instantly that the entire combination was successful but from the short drive home on the evening before it was obvious that the R Tunup contributed the most power. After my first experience with a Mustang I was very satisfied, I would liked to have started with one of the SVT Cobras but I had looked for one for months within driving distance but when my 03 SS Silverado and my Competion Yellow 95 Corvette sell I think I will go ahead and put a supercharger on it and maybe reach my goal I started off with.
I want to thank all the forum members for the advise you have given and answering the probably rediculoud questions I have asked.
Thanks to everyone
Garrell

As of right now the best mod I've personally done was plasti dip my rims black, however I'd say the best mod the old owner did was the smaller supercharger pulley woke the beast up a lot I'd say

Boss Intake Manifold, Steeda CAI, Steeda Tune and 3.73 gears were all done at the same time on my car, and had the most improvement so far. Drag Radials, LC Arms, brackets and Adj. Panhard bar were 2nd best improvement.

A combination of the Fays2 watts link and the Whiteline transmission rear mount bushing insert from Vorshlag. I can shift AND turn now, what a novel concept (transmission would "lock" all gears out when shifting mid corner or at high rpm due to driveline bushing deflection, both the six and eight share this issue).
