FNG here, I just picked up a 91 Mustang GT as a project. I'm having trouble deciding how to spend the first 2k that I have to invest. Option 1 is BBK cai, BBK 65mm TB, Trickflow Twisted Wedge Upper and lower intake, SCT tuner and 3.73 gears. Option 2 is Trickflow 170mm heads, trickflow stage 1 cam, and 1.6 roller rocker arms. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum.
I'm thinking that I would go with something like option #2...
Heads are where the HP is no matter what the build is.
GOOD,FAST, CHEAP-----------YOU CAN ONLY GET 2 OUT OF 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome from Atlanta. Just a little advice...Make up your mind about what you want to do, then change your mind, do a little more research. Then go over it all again, and you'll probably end up back where you started. Again, welcome.

Welcome, congrats on your purchase.

I agree with tinman, option 2, but if you could find a way to squeeze the gears in there also, you'd be smiling ear to ear till it hurts. Is this a 5-speed car or auto?

Take the best of both options,
heads, intake, and gears. Nix the bbk cai , throttle body , and tuner.
