Ok, so i just got a 2010 v6 mustang (same engine as 05-09 i think) and I want to make it an overall better car. Primarily more hp, quicker 0-60, faster 1/4 mile, and then handling etc after. I was thinking CAI, throttle body, exhaust, and short throw (oh its manual). What would i have to do to turbocharge it? Forged internals or just drop a turbo in? Ideally i want to spend as little money as possible (don't we all?) and get the most bang for my buck, so if anyone knows any company's that make good cheap parts, maybe put a link on or something.
Oh lastly, what do tuners do? Like superchips and stuff? I know about them and basically what they do, but are they worth it? Thanks in advance.

To make it faster get a cold-air intake, supercharger (better than turbos), an exhaust system, and a super chip. Those should make it faster than the GT. For handling you should get a better suspension system and tires. The 2010 Mustang is already good at handling so these minor upgrades should help a lot.

1st mistake: You bought a Ford
2nd mistake: You bought a Mustang
3rd mistake: you bought a V6!!!

Ok in all seriousness: First things first. Do your bolt ons and maximize the naturally aspirated power. You have the right idea with CAI, bore out the throttle body, maybe a throttle body spacer, and a throaty exhaust. Make the car breathe better and your throttle response will vastly improve.

Screw turbo, get a supercharger. Way easier on the engine and can perform better in varying weather, unlike the turbo.

Tuners will do a number of things, it can remove a rev limiter, elongate your gears, increase top end speed. Do all of your bolt ons and internals (cam, pulley, etc) then its time for a tune. Look for a company that will offer a free retune to stock due to the fact that once your car is tuned your warranty is toast.

As far as handling? Strut bars, limited slip diff, performance tires (w rated or better), lowering springs, etc.

Don't forget cosmetics! Those new mustangs look badass with projo headlights and the rousche bodykits...
