Currently have S197. 4.6L with CAI, lowered suspension, short throw shifter and glasspacks. Vehicle will be paid in full a lil after '12. Finally compiled a list of all the upgrades I would like to get done in the long run for my vehicle. Feel free to tear this list apart or suggest alternate parts and if you see anything that won't go together please tell me asap haha. I will have available 1st-$200 & 15th-$500. After paid off I will have 1st-$500 & 15th-$500. This is only an estimate, not exact, since sometimes things come up haha. This is not ALL of my spending cash just what I'm wiling to put into my car. I don't need critics on savings for other things haha.

sincerely for all that money i would sell the mustang for a gt500...
That would be a blast but got too many problems or I would. I don't want another loan to my name (selling and buying new car). I would really enjoy learning how to put all these parts in myself as I buy them since I never really got any experience before so should be a lot of fun!(I'll have friends and full base garage to work with) Also the car is a bit of a momento and I would like to have something to show for hard work. But yeah if I could afford it a GT500 would be AMAZING:D

You won't be able to do the shaker hood kit with that supercharger. Also wouldn't get USP with supercharger

Yeah i figured that shaker would be a problem. I saw that there was a bottom kit to it so I was curious if I used the top only but good to know.

Not too great with acronyms... USP? sorry

Sorry meant UDP- under drive pulley. Damn iPhone. If you want a shaker and supercharger look at the Saleen super shaker. Brenspeed sells it for sure don't know who else does.

holy crap that is gorgeous MUSTANG GT SALEEN SUPER SHAKER SUPERCHARGER (05-09)
You're right about the udp with s/c. I looked into it. It will lower the boost. Thank You Very Much! If anyone feels like telling me which supercharger is actually better I'd love to here it. Couldn't find real specs on the brenspeed s/c.

Thank You

Your going to need a good DynO tube for all that so there's no reason to buy the calibration tool. They'll change that in the tune.
holy fudge yeah I was meaning to add it and never got around to it. That is most definitely a must. I don't know how to do it or anything, hopefully ford dealer nearby can do it for me when time comes. I'll edit the 4.10 combo

Second the brake kit...always want to stopping power lol. The Saleen S/C seems to be one of the best I've seen for the price and upgrade abilities.

Might want to look into a brake kit as well. I also agree with taking the UDP's off your list if you plan to s/c it in the future.
I'll throw one on the list. Thanks! browsed over brakes and then forgot to make up my mind on one :p If anyone wants to gimme a suggestion, awesome

Comp Cams Stage II XFI NSR Camshafts-$740
cams you may want to consider getting sc'er cams now if you are going to get a sc'er later.

CDC Shaker System-$800
skip this since you are 1) getting a new hood and 2)won't work with most sc'ers

Aluminum One Piece Driveshaft-$770

Kooks Header and Catted X-pipe Combo-$1300
these are on the top of my prefered list for LT's

Ford Racing 550HP Supercharger Kit-$6800
great sc'er you'll love it

Mustang 6-Speed Trans Installation kit w/o driveshaft-$2700
this is my choice of transmissions, but you'll need a clutch/flywheel also

Ford Racing 4.10 Gear and Speedometer Recalibration Tool-$320
don't get the recal tool. you can change your gear ratio in a hand held tuner

Eaton Limited Slip Differential - 31 Spline 8.8in-$480
good choice

SPEC Stage 3 Clutch-$320
you don't want this clutch. get a mcleod clutch

Steeda Underdrive Pulleys-$215
getting a sc'er you'll just be removing these so no point in buying

PA Performance Alternator-$260
why do you need this?

Edelbrock High Flow Performance Water Pump-$180
don't bother with the water pump unless you're getting a meizer electric pump

Ford Motorcraft OEM Spark Plugs-$70
usually most sc'er kits come with new plugs that are the 1degree colder

don't know either

Eibach Anti-Roll Kit-$340

8-Point Roll Bar-$350 (My wife is afraid i'll crash haha)

Understand its lowered but is that just springs or did you change the upper and lower control arms and mounts? Thats a lot of HP to put to the road and if your control arms and mounts cant handle it you'll be spinning lol
