Ok so basically this is my experience with the bolt on mods for the 2010's. This is just my opinion and the results I got as far as how the car performed and how it ran on the dyno after the mod.
Steeda cold air intake: best cai for the 2010 available. I netted a 20hp gain out of this mod. There a bit pricey but they look good under the hood and they work. Always had awesome luck with Steeda's products.
Steeda Under drive Pulleys: I got pretty minimal gains out of these. Maybe 5hp. But for the money i wasnt really upset about the gains I got out of them.
Steeda charge motion deletes: These are freakin awesome. I pulled 15 more rwhp with these in my 2010. I also had cams cai and a few other mods when installed but for like 100 bucks...thats what I think they cost me, who can argue.
BBK twin 62mm throttle body: For 300 bucks I was pretty disapointed with the tb. It really didnt make a noticeable difference in performance to me, except for a new whistly sound lol. I wasnt expecting much but I still thinks its necessary if your going for more than 400rwhp. I think the tb will shine on the stang once I port polish the heads and break that 400rwhp marker.
Comp Cams Stage II xfi nsr cams: Ok firstly, Dont make the mistake I did. Buy the vsr cams and spend that extra bit of money for the valve springs. The nsr cams really really fell short of what they advertised. With this config on my stang : comp cams, steeda cai, bbk twin tb I only made 310rwhp.....where the heck is this 30hp that comp cams is advertising on a stock mustang....cause I sure didnt see it. If your going to spend the money on cams just shell out the extra bucks and get the vsr's. My friend did that and pulled 40rwhp out of his STOCK 2010. I'm still pissed about that lol.
Kooks Long tube headers catted x pipe combo: You can pick this up for around 1400 bucks...I know thats a bit pricy for what most people are willing to spend on headers and x pipe but you get what you pay for here. I went from 330rwhp to 370rwhp with this combo and I even richened up the tune a bit to make the tune a lil safer for everyday driving. These are hands down the best header x pipe combo you can buy. Before we messed with the tune i had 378 rwhp.....and on top of that they sound absolutely nasty awesome with my corsa axle backs.
Rousch Short Throw Shifter: Easy install, easy on the wallet, works great no complaints from me. I dont know how this shifter compares to other 2010 short shifters as this was the only one out when I bought it lol. However I did this install at the same time as my friend put his short throw shifter on his 08 and my throws were atleast 1/2" shorter. Only thing I didnt like was it didnt come with any grease???? But I went out got some and it shifted smooth. Never had an issue with it since.
SCT Livewire Tuner: Sometimes more expensive is not better. The tuner works fine but as far as spending the extra cash for the big display and data logging.....pish...not worth it. Its in the way anywhere you try to mount it. The cord is a hassle. In retrospect I would just have bought the sx3 and spent the extra cash on suspension. I also have had several issues with the livewire. My dyno guy since then has told me that all the issues with sct he has are the livewires. He's never had an issue with the sx3.
