    As of right now I have absolutely no idea LOL has pretty much everything I want done to it already, I'll be buying a SCT Tuner this coming week since with the intake and throttle body it needs to be tuned real bad because right now it's leaning out bad which is also affecting my throttle (yay for drive by wire, not). Once that is done I'll be looking into Brembo wheels. Then maybe get H&R Super Sports for a much lower stance. Once that is done I'll get some headers, FRPP intake manifold, and that's really about it. I'd like to get around 400hp to the crank, as it sits currently it's around 350hp give or take but don't quote me on that since I obviously don't have dyno numbers lol

    Sounds like a good plan, the sct tuner made my car run a lot smoother after doing some mild breathing mods. The SCT people are pretty good to deal with too, they made my tune over the phone and it kept it smooth enough for daily drivable dependability.

    Did they charge you to make your own tune?
    Sorry I've never used a tune before so I'm trying to get as much info as possible.
    Nah I picked it out lol I honestly love the White/Red combo, really sets it apart from the rest.

    I ordered the x4 off American muscle and they had free tunes for life. I just called them and set it up after I ordered it

    Bama tunes are by far some of the worst tunes out there. More than likely your shit is running seriously lean. Do a search for Bama tunes being junk and watch the results flow in. If you're going to do a remote tune, go with a company like Lund or Dirty Dirty Racing.

    You are probably correct, I'm sure there are much better remote tunes out there for it. For my purpose of getting it to run smooth on a budget, it did do the trick though. This winter I will probably change it up, but for the summer I wasn't disappointed.

    I can speak from exp that they suck for our cars but I have heard that was because they were better with the newer cars. Dunno...

    Nice ride.. You may get to 350 at the crank after you install the long tubes but that FRPP CAI will hold you back. You should look into deleting the CMP's also. If you recall, we made 318 with JLT 110mm CAI, CMDP, off-road X and MAC axleback. I'm not sure where it is after the long tubes but I may spin the rollers to see before I install the blower.

    tail lights are cool but there are better places to put money into a mustang.
