Ditto. Suspension will help plant that power adder to the ground when you are ready. Plus suspension is gonna give you a better overall feel in performance.

I would do the basic suspension work (springs, dampers, lcas, relocation brackets, and uca) before going FI. It'll help put down the power better and help keep you on the road better as well
How many inches can i go, that it would still be "performance"?

Definitely drop!!! I would say about an inch, Eibach and FRPP are one of the more popular setups... Paired with shocks and struts makes a more complete smoother setup, I went with the Eibach Pro-Plus kit, and that was definitely one of the best mods I've done to my ride... I've had other cars which were lowered and was never really happy with what it did to ride quality, and I'm surprised how well this Mustang took the drop. It should have came like this from factory, the 4x4 stance don't look to good on a sports car

Ill look into it

Between 1-2 anything less isn't really a drop and anything more and you'll have rubbing issues. I personally think about 1-1.5 is perfect
I might go with k springs, what the fatest or wide whrn it comes wheel hieght on 19s 35 or 40? Without rubbing

I completely agree. Looking into options for mine currently.

Looks better is opinion, but I agree regarding the 1-2 inches.

Faster is often true, as our cars are pretty dirty aerodynamically underneath. Being lower reduces the amount of air underneath the vehicle, and there is less to drag on the car to slow it down. It may not be noticeable, but if you really know your car, you should feel the difference.

That is also how it is more mpgs. The more efficient a car is, the more powerful and better mpg. Like a drive shaft, for example. Less rotational weight makes it easier to turn, faster performance, that is easier. That less work also carries over to daily driving, and the engine not having to work so hard to maintain 35 mph. A k a, better mpg and better performance.

Combine a belly pan with a drop and it is like floating through the air. People often neglect theircoefficient of drag in their performance numbers.

I didn't realize lowering could have that dramatic of effect.
