04 GT 5.4 2v swap mod help
So below is what I am currently running. I was having heating issues the other day when it was 105 degrees outside. Put in the new thermostat and my most recent purchase, the throttle body. Let it idle for about 15 mins and then test drove it around town quite a bit. Seems to have been the fix as it didn't over heat again.
This Saturday I have a performance tuning scheduled with Y2 Performance here outside Dallas. The lead tuner and lead mechanic from Dallas Mustang are over there to do the work, so I believe I am in good hands.
I am newish to the mustang world and my other half is saying I am already obsessed and addicted. I am curious to hear from others who have had success with this 5.4 swap, as well as everyone else. I am considering stage 2 cams 102200 next but am still not sure. Also considering a SVE aluminum radiator and performance oil cooler.
I would love to know what else I should consider doing/undoing. What everyone thinks? Any and all advice is seriously appreciated. I really do need help making the right decisions.
Besides the TB and thermostat everything else was already done when I purchased it for $7,000. I would love to hear if this was a good buy or not.
