haha thanks, i'm pretty happy with it but i'm always adding and taking stuff out as i find fit for beginners.
I've been in the mustang scene and doing real research for probably 2 years. I started out like most asking silly questions on parts opinions and from searching/ seeing other posts/ getting replies/ and actually TRYING PARTS and paying for them this is the accumulation for all that time and effort.

It took several days to write the original w/o any extra input from other guys. Since its been created i've been molding it to become easier to read and more understandable by the average user.

Awesome thread that could save someone some serious $$$, thank you for taking the time to do this man
That's the major plan. I haven't seen any other thread like it for any other car platform, let alone one of the most popular cars ever produced. It feel's good to make it and hopefully help people who are willing to do some searching around for info. I'll continue to clarify what I can and maybe add or subtract things beginners may need or not need to know right off the bat.

I plan on making a thread for those that have read and done all of the things mentioned in this. However it is taking much longer than expected.

Thanks for reading,

-- Logan

This is absolutely awesome! For new modders like myself, I think this makes the absolutely the most sense of any of the mod order posts that I have read!

Sounds great! Also it's always a plus when the wife is happy. Keep us updated when you start modding your car.

THANKS FOR READING. Personally I love 4v. With that being said 2v is cheaper for the parts, but more overall if you're going balls out for max horse power. I personally was in the process of hunting down a 1998-2002 Lincoln Nagivator 5.4 dohc to put a forged rotating assembly in and throw a turbo on it. However I wrecked my mustang before I got the expensive parts.

great write up wish I would have read this when I was 16! wouldn't have bought all those bolt ons :(
Awesome write up.
Hey Guys,

Thanks for the great info and guidance. I want to do so much it is hard to know where to start.


As stated in the last post of the thread, here's where i would start

RECOMMENDATIONS

After looking at what I have learned over the years I probably would have changed a few things I have done to my car or at least the order I did them. After looking for any repairs to make sure your car is running properly here what most 'experienced' modders recommend to the new people:

1) Hand held tuner
2) Rear Gears - fit to your ultimate goal
3) Full length subframe connectors (weld in)
4) Lower control arms
6) Short throw shifter
7) Exhaust (you can start with just a cat-back but the mid-pipe and headers make a large difference as well)
8) Performance tires, and possibly new rims to accommodate wider tiers

Those are modifications recommended to just about EVERYBODY for any application, that are farely easy to install, and WITHOUT wasting money in the future... beyond that you will want to customize your car to your specifications and ultimate goal.




Thank you for reading, if there's any questions or concerns please feel free to PM me.

- Logan
