^Cams, Longtubes, maybe a 75 shot for me....I just don't have the budget for anything else...
I am new to the site and love cars but don't know as much about them as I'd like to yet, but I was wondering if you had any suggestions for beginning mods for a daily driver. I have an '00 GT with 3.73s, bola ATAK exhaust, Tri-axe short throw, and just got a new engine installed. It has been my daily for 2 years and will continue to be until I finish college and get a new car to mae my daily and make Sally (my stang) my build car. Probably should wait to buy parts until its my build car but I just can't help myself and have been looking for good parts that add some power or just any other good parts to start off with that won't make me hate driving it while its still my DD. Sorry for the long post and getting off topic!I would imagine that for some it is the first car that they modded. It is the first car that I've modded in 35 years. My 2000 Mustang GT responds to mods differently than my 1966 Dodge Coronet 500 with a 426 Wedge or my 1969 Camaro SS 350. It is a lot different beast.
Also, learning what mods fit what purpose is a challenge. When I first joined this forum everyone spoke as if all mods fit all purposes and no one mentioned the drawbacks from the mods. I've notice that most of the regrets are coming from people who use their cars as daily drivers. And some of the great track mods are not so great when you have to put up with them for hours at time.
x2 on the coilovers. They're good stuff.Going to do post 2.0,
After this last build (which I will post up soon).
1. Doing 2 sets of springs before before doing MM coil over conversion in the front for my tubular K
2. Putting a turbo on the car, the supercharger was simple and reliable. Melting everything in the engine bay sucks.
3. Procharging my car instead of just going with the turbo like I originally intended. Would have saved me time and I woild have gotten my headache sooner.
(P.S- even though I am still working out the bugs in my turbo project, the supercharger was more enjoyable)
4. Buying a divisionX 340 pump. Replacing it with an awesome bbk 300 pump (which I would recommend to anyone for simplicity and the fact that it ****ing works unlike the divisionX) and then replacing that with a full on3 return style fuel system with twin on3 340 pumps(come from the same warehouse as AEM pumps according to an insider). Wish I just went with a full return system from the get-go. Between the 2 pumps and a KB BAP, It ran me over half the cost of the return system.
Agreed. I had cut springs, then eibach prokit, then coils. Should have just went coils in the first place and saved myself some money.I regret going through three sets of springs/struts before just springing (get it, hahahahahaha) for a set of MM coilovers. Way, way better than any stock-location spring/strut setup.
Don't regret mine at all . lol. Mine was bone stock v6 auto, now makes 350 wheel and is getting a g-force t5 and a new clutch this winter.My first v6 automatic mustang. It was nothing but regrets. The exhaust and 3:73 gears might have been an exception.
