    For some the warm weather is just around the corner and it's time to get the stangs going and the mod money flowing.

    Got mine last year, drove it stock for the summer and now I'm bitten by the bug that seems to have infected this place.

    Which would YOU consider the top 5 mods to do first?

    1) Driver Mod

    After that, figure out exactly what you want to do with your car and be as purposeful as possible.

    Popular mods tend to be;

    2) Exhaust (LT's, Mid-Pipe, Cat-Back) - any of which, pick based on sound.
    3) Gears - no less than 4.10 n/a, with a power adder you may want to carefully reconsider.
    4) Suspension work. It will be the foundation towards taking you to your end goal with the car. Just don't do something silly like get Eibach Sportlines or H&R supersport springs if you want to drag race.
    5) Practice and more practice.

    I would do(as a street setup):
    1, Short Throw shifter
    2(or 4). Cat Back Exhaust+Xpipe
    3. Gears+A handheld tuner
    4(or 2).Springs, Shocks, subframe connectors, Rear LCA's, C/C plates, and Alum rack bushings.
    5. From here on out you are wasting money unless you go fi in the power department, and any future suspension mods depends on your plans for the car

    I think Squares has it summed up just perfect. It really depends on your plans are with the car. Keep some deep dishes in mind.

    Ouch! I wish....but then I would have just bought a cobra and got rid of number 1.

    I did already buy black deep dish bullitts, they are in the mail.

    Going to order spring when they arrive after I find out what customs is going to charge me.
