My GT is all stock except a Steeda Tri-Ax shifter and a chip put in by the original owner. I'm wanting to upgrade to get a bit more power out of it and also a few things for aesthetics. If anyone has ideas on reasonable-cost upgrades that would be worth the buck, please post them here. And if anyone has opinions on superchargers vs. NOS, any thoughts would help.
Also, on a different note, a friend and I are at a disagreement on the steet-legality of ground neons. If anyone knows laws about these in Texas, lemme know.

Well, I had MAC exhaust on my '91 GT, those ****** are loud, especially if you're running any type of Off road pipe (no cats). I don't know about the bassani's.
For your car, I would get 3.55 or 3.73 gears, as I've heard Modular motors really respond, but then again, so does my pushrod 5.0.
Subframes are a must for any Stang. Mustangs are uni-body, which means the chassis is not all one piece. If you were to look under your car, under the doors, you would see that the frame isn't connected (front and back). Subframes are welded on to either side to make the frame one piece. Basically, whenever you launch on a unibody, you'll notice how one side of the car (usually drivers side) will pick up, this is totally tweaking the body and frame because the chassis is twisting. Put subframes on and this will decrease the amount of twisting, will let you launch harder, and will also make the car handle better in curves.
I got my subframes for $40 off of Ebay (CGS Chassis) The price is cheap, but they work damn good. Had them installed at the metal shop of my old HS. There's a hill with a windy road right behind the school on the way to my house. It was so much more fun, the car felt so much more stable going down it.
Exhaust isn't going to get TOO loud until you take the cats off. That's when it sounds f'n awesome. I love it.
Unequal length shorties give you more low end, equal length shorties give you more top end, long tubes give you power all around, but are not smog legal, a b**** to install, and may give you clearance problems on a lowered car. Plus you have to get a special H/X-pipe, while the shorties can use the stock H-pipe.
Shorty it is on the headers. I'll figure equal or unequal when the time comes i guess. The subframe sounds like a semi-necessity, I'll check eBay after this post and see what they have. I think before i get into anything big, I'm gonna start off with a cold-air intake and the subframes.
O yeah, and incase anyone's interested, here's 2 pics of the car (pre-neons and honda type-R emblems, of course<img border="0" src= smileys/smiley2.gif> )
