Ok I have around $5,000. Yes I wish it was more but I'm still in college. I have a 2008 mustang GT pretty much stock besides a pypes exhaust system. Looking for feedback pertaining to what upgrades I should do performance wise. In other words what can I upgrade and get the most bang for my buck with the engine to get more power. My buddy is also a mechanic so I'm not worrying about labor costs. Thanks

So many things can be done with 5,000 dollars. I wouldn't complain to be a college student with an 08 GT and 5 grand to spend on it LOL.

Congrats on the ride and good luck modding it. :pics ???

Just lookin for power and a little more get up and go. Such as more aggresive at the wheel then what it already is. This is a stick v8 4.6. I know its a vague explanation but it pretty much sums it up

I am looking for more power at the wheel, aggressive start up like 0-60. And I drive a jeep for my daily driver this is in storage for winter so I have time to dick around with it

I have a turbo kit for much less than that.. Bam you have power. Finish the rest of it with suspension. Boom, fast car.

You can buy mine for roughly 3k, since idk how much it costs to get to canada. But then all you need to do is put it together. Fuel system n all. Hell I even have instructions

On 3 Performance - Turbo Kits for Ford Mustangs

Thats best bang for your buck, however I would NOT go through this company directly. Search this forum and you will learn a lot about them. Dont buy their supporting mods either. Then stock gears are fine, you will reach your power goals and hold off on the tuner because a dyno tune would be best after this

Thanks for the input, this is something to think about

Or how about this, would you rather have instant power, you being s 3v there is a good bit of positive displacement superchargers available unlike the 2vs
