What should i do next?

Hey guys, i have an 07 mustang gt/cs with 20k miles on it. It has a novi 2200 intercooled sc package, ford racing handling kit, dynatech aluminum ds, catless h pipe. Stock besides that. Anyone have any tips or upgrade ideas? It was dyno tuned by realspeed in suffolk county long island i think at 480rwhp and i think around 430rwtq. I just want it to continue being a reliable street monster and maybe keep upgrading

How about brakes? The stock brakes are pathetic. Also are you running stock wheels and factory all season tires? If so they are definitely worth upgrading.

Longtubes. Cams. Brakes. Weight reduction(Tubular K member, Radiator support, A Arms, seats, etc), Wheels, Tires, LCAs, and relocation brackets, UCA and mount

Full bolt ons. CMS Cams. And forever slow.

Actually brakes are a good idea, they are pathetic. Suspension power wise the car is a beast but then it has no brakes. Stock 18" cs rims. How much will my motor safely and reliably handle?

Brakes are only as good as your tires. I would be going tires/wheels, rear control arms and relo brackets. Brake wise you can find take off brembos from gt500 or 5.0 cars. I snatched up mine for 550 with 500 miles rotora, pads, lines and calipers.

For the brembo or GT500s? Its simple. Like 5 bolts each side (2 cailper to bracket, 2 bracket to spindle, one hold the line on the strut) and just have to unscrew the line from the car which is next to the strut. Re assemble caliper to spindle using the same 2 bolts that were used for the bracket to spindle prior then bleed them. Took me like an hour.

I paid 440 shipped for my brembos two weeks ago, pads have 90% life left, same for rotors, but guy did a terrible paint job on them, so had to repaint, but not that big of deal.

Pretty much. If you can change brake likes or swap a regular caliper its that easy. At the point of removing the calipers it's 2 more to pull the bracket and rotor.

480rwhp on stock internal 3V (If not, my apologies)? Wow.. I will be little nervous to push the peddle to the metal too often.

Why? I push 485 through an automatic which is about 500 on a manual car. And I drive it like it's stolen (10.3 mpg) and feel 100% safe. Good A/F and less than 18* of timing (I think I run 16*) and you will be fine.

boss, every damn shop (brick and mortal, AM, Summit, Jegs) or and performance tuner I spoke to said I'm tossing a dice pushing over 450whp on a 3V without internals. Are they just trying to scare u or wanting to sell u more crap?

One shop even said I should go forged even for a 75 shot jet (gave me a 9500 estimate for 850HP (650HP+200Shot) engine mod w/nitrous, clutch, dyno, wideband) but another said no need.

Frustrated.

500 rwhp is the general limit with a good and safe tune. 450-480 is a very solid and can be safe area tune pending.
