Default How to spend $1K on an 06 GT

Whats up people? I'm pretty new to the board (first post) and I just wanted to ask you all what would be the best way to spend a grand on a 06 GT 5-speed hopefully without breaking the warranty? I got a few people I need to shut up. I live in a region where the best gas available is 90 octane. Plese advise this mustang newbie. Thanks.

Save your money and put a supercharger on it... *** the warranty...
Oh, and welcome to the fourms...

Thats the eventual plan but thats after I build the bottom end ten times stronger than it needs to be so I'm not runnin tens straight to the garage. But seeing how I don't have a million dollars all I'm lookin for by the end of this year is low low 13s to mid 12s. Only reason I'm milkin the warranty is cause I'm getting some strange rattle from the suspension (which will get upgraded anyway). But I do want to wring out any potetial problems fore I start dumpin all my paychecks into the ride.

Then take all the idea's and ask you dealer if it will void the warrenty first.

Might want to go to your dealer and ask a wrench also,Ford seels some good mods that will not void anything.

Should I expect any Gains from a Prochamber Mid pipe and SLP loudmouth or powerflow exhaust. I know they'll probably be minimum but at least a little right?

Heres my 2cts. I apologize if I seem a little forward...

If your worried about the warrenty issue, then dont even think about touching your car, because once that first mod goes on.....your gonna get the bug and you wont stop modding it. (personal experience) Bite the bullet and erase the factory warrenty from your mind, get your credit card out and start shopping!
