Default Next mod list for 2013 M6 5.0?

So i run a steeda tune with steeda cold air, i have the 3.55 and now looking for futur mods. Im looking for stret and drag enjoyable
Mod

Im currently getting long tube and off road xpipe installed, should i expect sum hp gain?

Im looking at 4.10 gear but cant make my mind if it worth the difference versus 3.55

I also would like to put real slick 15" in the back went dragging instead of street radial in 18". What do i need to make it fit (the kit im looking at come with the correct offset/bolt pattern rims)

What else could i check for?

Im debating if i should order the eibach full kit with pro spring swaybar and shock/strut?

If you have the stock shifter, replace that piece of rubbish. I was going to replace mine, but I am taking delivery of a C7 soon (knock on wood). It is a sad excuse for a shifter.

The biggest issue I had was with the suspension. Obviously we get good power from factory, but the ride height is 4x4 status. If you're not interested in lowering, at least get rid of the wheel hop. I absolutely couldn't stand the wheel hop on this car, so within the first 1000 miles I had the car, I changed out the rear suspension entirely with coilovers, which don't change wheel hop, but the Hotchkis Sport Suspension Adjustable Upper Trailing Arms did as well as the Hotchkis Sport Suspension Lower Trailling Arms.

Both are great items that will help with wheel hop. Match that up with a set of coilovers and a panhard bar, or the Whiteline Watts Link and you're good to go!

Check out everything here!

Hotchkis Sport Suspension Lower Trailing Arms Mustang


Whiteline Watts Link Mustang

Hope that helps! That's what I would do!

No worries! I'll give you the breakdown over PM. If you don't want to go as hardcore with the watts link, when lowering the car, a simple panhard bar will do the trick. I personally right now use Hotchkis for my panhard bar, but I have plans to upgrade to the watts link for extra rigidity since I road race my 5.0 as often as I have the time to do so.
