    Yes, this pertains to me but I was wondering what are the most popular power mods that are generally done. I have $1,000 to spend and I am looking for bang-for-the-buck pieces that allow for more power later. Currently I only have K&N Intake and MAC Exhaust. :damnit:

    How would YOU spend my $1,000? :shrug:

    Why not 4.10's and cams? get the heads worked later and you can do bottle or blower...I don't know what it costs to get cams installed...I'm a DIY kinda guy, so if you're not, then the cam install might zap most of your $1K...

    plenum/tb
    predator tuner
    pulleys
    shifter if you have a 5 spd
    o/r mid pipe

    Personally, I'd hold off on the gears unless you have an AOD, then I'd drop the Predator and get 4.10s instead

    This all sounds relatively familiar. Oh, I have a 00 vert. my info USED to be in my sig. I guess the site got tossed around though. I think I put it back.

    Can anything provide direct links to the exact product that I should buy and where I can get it for the best price? Usually mustang tuning comes up. Anyone have any better online shops?

    Thanks in advance for your expretise knowledge. I <3 Stangnet
