Default Looking to boost hp

I have a 2000 mustang gt, all stock except I have magma flow exhaust, no x-pipe yet. I'm looking at boosting my hp, most likely just bolt ons. Looking for some good ideas. Also it is an automatic

Get 7-10 dyno tested HP over a stock intake! With less restriction and more surface area this High-Flow.

Not a bolt on ... but will increase both HP and Torque:

http://www.steeda.com/store/comp-cam...d-mustang.html

Steeda's underdrive pulleys slow down accessory speed by about 25% reducing parasitic acccessory drag on the engine. This drag reduction results in an increase of up to 10 horsepower and increased gas mileage! Get back the horsepower and torque your belt driven accessories steal and start enjoying better performance and gas mileage today!

Send me an email at tim @steeda.com and we can put a package together based on your budget.

Best Regards,

TJ

There is no cold air intake that will add HP, there only for looks

Sorry BustangGT - I forgot to say WELCOME!
Most folks agree that starting out the most bang for the buck is gears. Especially for us auto guys. I haven't jumped yet but if/when I do I will get 4.10 Gears and some suspension mods, Lowering springs. All I have so far is a K&N Drop In filter. Most also agree that a CAI, though pretty does zilch for a lightly modded ride.

Edit: Yea what Uberstang1 said!
