Best bet performance upgrades
 
Thanks in advance for any advice. I bought my first Mustang. It's a 2004 GT coupe 5 spd, 76ooo miles, already has Magnaflow Magnapack Catback exhaust and BBK cold air intake. I'll probably put a tuner in first. What should be added with a tuner? Injectors? Mine are pink(24#?) Also, what was in the anniversary package?

Good question and if you're going with a tuner I would recommend Bama's SF4/X PowerFlash Tuner as it really woke the my Bullitt up! It perked her way up! No more sluggishness getting on the highway or falling on its face downshifting. Regarding the injectors I wouldn't throw them on just yet as the OEM's are more than enough for what's on your car right now. If you were to install a set of cams or potentially supercharge it then I would recommend them but they're going to flow more than enough for you!

Let me know if you have any questions and I'm here to help!

Best bang for your buck would be gears after the tuner. BTW nothing else is needed with the tuner.

I would do an offroad x-pipe with the tuner.

It's got a Magna Flow X pipe already, with no cats. Having those put in tomorrow. Tires and tuner in the next couple of days.

Gears and a tuner. Want add much rwhp but it'll most def put a smile on your face!

Gears and supercharger

I had hi-flow cats put on and a Diablo tuner. It's not much, but I can feel the difference with the tuner. I wish superchargers weren't so expensive....

Gotta pay to play

Also does anyone know if there's any power benefit to running a catless x / h pipe vs. one with high flow cats?
