Most will tell you the same as below...

For power/acceleration

1) CAI/SCT/Good Tune - not cheap though at $650 +
2) 4.10 gear swap - again not cheap at about $600

For drivability

1) Steeda sport springs / struts / shocks - love this combo
2) Hurst short shifter - perfect for me and has lasted
3) GT500 wheels and wider tires

Just Because

Bullitt leather steering wheel

The fact you have been running 4.10s for so long is even more of a testament to the longevity of the car as your engine has spun more rpm than those with the stock gears.

with that many miles driven, I'm sure you have an idea of your mileage...what kind of MPG's are you getting with the 4.10s? I drive a bit too. I have an 07 with 115,000 miles on it, and was thinking about going to the 4.10's....I have the 3.55's right now.

Sounds like you missed the W140 chassis from Mercedes Benz. I would never attempt to work on a Euro car..... god bless all those that do!

A great deal of credit must go to you, the owner for paying attention to the needs of your car! You Sir, are a great American!

Just circled the state of Florida in our '07 GT/CS and it now has almost 140k on the clock. FWIW, we have nothing on this guy (Not a mustang but a Ford none the less)
