I have a 1996 mustang gt with 115k miles all stock. What could I do to get around 280-300rwhp. Just getting some ideas so I can make some plans for my mustang soon. :D

you need to give some more details..

mainly what kind of funds you are working with, you can ask around and the cheapest option would be the bottle.

do you know what you want already? do you have a gameplan of going F/I or trying to keep it n/a which is going to take some effort.

im willing to bet most are going to suggest the bottle or some sort of f/I

your cars only limitations are how much time and money you are willing to put into it.

A full p.i. swap includes heads, cams and intake. I would recommend that along with some headers, an off road midpipe some gears and a tune and you may be happy enough with the results to not feel the need to add some nitrous.

along with a good set of gears to get the power to the wheels. an aluminum driveshaft wouldn't hurt either.

I'm getting 4.10 gears. Will ford C springs and tokico HP shocks and struts be fine? I'm not looking to race just a weekend car.

c springs and tokico blues are fine, just put them on myself a few weeks ago, ride quality improved plus it lowered it about 1&1/4 all around.

Idles around 600 rpms everytime I start it. No engine light on. Shakes a lot when idling and stops when I rev the engine.

I want to stay n/a. So PI swap and full bolt ons get me close to my goal?
Yes sir pi swap but with sum stage 2 Cams. Fully bolted with a tune and ur there. If u plan on putting a supercharger then you'll end up blowing ur engine then ur looking at a lot of cash to a complete new setup
