Since you are lowered already, you should go with lca, uca, and relocation brackets.

I want to have a fast and fun DD but also take it to the track so where would my money be best spent? I might stay NA but at the same time I'd love to put in a superchager or turbo but then my price range isn't that big yet but I'm working on it. So what would you guys recommend?

Ok it's a 2011 GT manual base model with 50k miles I drive quite a bit. It has a JLT cold air intake, 93 Lund tune, Flowmasters according to my dad, eibach springs and panhard bar, and also brembo brakes off my dads 2007 shelby witch I heard are the same as the brembo package and the rest is all stock other than a few appearance mods.

Yea I think I'm gonna go get an O/r H pipe or a MGW or Barton shifter in a month or so. This is my first car so the shifter doesn't bother me too much but I have heard that a new shifter makes a huge difference over the stock.

Wow...things have changed since I was 16-18 years old...? I probably would not be alive if I had that much power at that age. Lol

Guys rolling around in fox bodied 5.0's with flowmasters and making maybe 210 whp were hero's in my time.

Start with the Whiteline transmission bushing insert ($30) and the Steeda shifter bracket. That setup is what Vorshlag uses in their record shattering TT3 monster. It helps keep cost down ($100 for parts), and cleans up the shifting feel and accuracy without adding much weight (looking at you MGW). If you have issues with increased NVH from the transmission mount insert, you can remove the large center insert with a hack saw, but leave the two smaller side inserts to maintain side to side stability without the vertical stability lock also.

You can't really compare the shift feel from the GT500 to a GT, since they have completely different transmissions. The GT500 has a Tremec TR6060 (if I recall the part number correctly), and every other manual 2011-14 Mustang has the Getrag MT82.

Haha, I know how it is. I'm only 19 and I have a black 2011 gt with the brembos as well but this is my fourth mustang. I went from a 92 gt to a 2000 gt to a 2006 gt and now I have the coyote. As far as the shifter goes, I just replaced my bracket with the two post barton and it made a good difference. The shifts are better and I guess you could say more accurate. It sounds expensive at $105.00 but it was worth it in my opinion. I'm going to get the barton shifter later but the stock shifter with the bracket made a world of difference in my car.

I would do MGW shifter first, followed by the UCA & LCA with relocation brackets. Offroad midpipes and longtubes for some more power before going FI

How much would u say the UCA and LCA with relos help out. I more than likely will go MGW first though.
