Great write up! I'd like to shake your hand and buy you a beer

I think it's important, before modding, to figure out what you want out of the car so you don't have to re-do a mod. The order of importance for mods for everyone will be different. But, just as a basic guideline, the order you came up with is very good, IMO.

Maybe exhaust, gears, tune, lowering springs, flsfc
FLSFC's should be first on anyone's list of mods. Next I'd say Exhaust, gears, and a tune. Then decide what you want from the car because any of the first mods are a must on any Mustang. Because you don't want to go and do lowering springs if you're going for a drag car.

I don't know much about brakes and rotors, but if you want head over to either the suspension or tire section the moderator there, Jazzer, will definitely help you out with brakes

I actually have a sticky somewhere on this site about the front and rear 03 Cobra brake setup for around $600 using all new parts and brembo front blanks. That is my suggestion for brakes. They are awesome brakes! Running them on my car right now and they stop amazing!

My suggestion would be buying some quality pads. You'd be surprised at how well performance pads......perform. F buying new brakes!

Regarding the FLSFC's... I know (well, I'm pretty sure they did) my 01 vertible came factory with them. How do aftermarket FLSFC's compare to the factory ones?

Man this thread helped a lot. I dont even have a vehicle yet haha but I've been saving up so that when I turn 18 in a few months I can get a kickass 03/04 GT or Mach 1. Once I save up some more I plan on Supercharging it with CAI, Long Tube Headers, Magnaflow Catback and H pipe, and a whole lot of other ****.

But can I get some opinion on a water pump and a corbon fiber driveshaft?
