Default Which mod should I get next?

I'm going to be purchasing another mod soon and would like any input.

Choices are:
1. Raxiom GPS head unit
2. Aluminum 1 piece drive shaft
3. Borla mufflers
4. BBK 73mm throttle body

Which one should I get and why

This is my daily driver

Thanks in advance

I think all of these mods are valuable in their own way. I would recommend at some point having them all. So I honestly don't think you can wrong with the order your purchase them in!

Borla Mufflers will make the car sound awesome, Raxiom GPS will add great styling and a touch screen navigation system to your Mustang and the 1-Piece Driveshaft will improve acceleration by cutting down on rotating mass!

Hope this helps! Let me know if we can be of any assistance.

#4 is a waste on a NA S197; v8 OR v6.

1 thru 3 would all be good choices. #2 is the only one to add a few RWHP; well, actually, reduce rotational mass to free-up some RWHP.

Mufflers. Gives new life to your car. Makes you feel giddy and excited about it again. I am not saying you dont still though. Muffler, tuner & CAI, gears, then suspension. get as much of that 300 HP to the ground as possible and make it count.

Thats what I was leaning towards. Although having a V6 I'm not a big fan of any of the mufflers except the Borla Touring. Everything else sounds extremely raspy and ricer-like to me. I like a nice subtle tone that sounds great. SiberExpress has an awesome setup that I've been eyeing...

If you are planning on racing or getting your car on the dyno machine, I would say get the Aluminum 1 piece drive shaft.

If not, get the Borla mufflers for a better exhaust tone.

As Nuke mentioned, scratch the BBK throttle body, unless you are planning on going FI. It's not beneficial on a naturally aspirated engine.

Either 3. Mufflers, or 5. UPR Lower control arms!

I've done some research and I get mixed reviews on this topic. People who have bought it swear by some type of power increase, even if it's minimal. And the people who don't have it always seem talk down on it.

I dont see how it wouldn't make a bit of difference. 5mm more air flow is a decent amount especially when paired with a CAI. Add a tune to that and there has to be some type of gain, even if it's minimal.

More air=more power.

I have never seen any type of proof backing up this "non beneficial" opinion. Thoughts?
