Default Need some more modding opinions

So i bought my 4.10's waiting to get them installed by www.lethalperformancesatx.com
Now im thinkin about getting 2 bolt ons and getting it dyno-tuned at the same time i install the 4.10s in late november.
Im not sure what to get... i would say in parts i have a budget of about 350-400 no more though
I have been looking at Steeda UPD but heres my problem with them, they say they take off 25% of ur accessories power. so my A/C already sucks and its going to suck even more? eh not sure. I might still get them.
I have also been looking at Steeda CMCV deletes (economy)
Should i go with that or a throttle body and the CMCV? Or if u have any other ideas please let me know. Check sig to see current mods.

go w/ the UDP and CMCV deletes. ive heard that throttle body's on a NA engine wont make a difference. btw your hp/tq numbers look pretty good

Thanks, i got that time after i went t the track. weird thing.. last few times ive been to the track i ran at 103 mph... did i lose power? what would cause that. maybe track conditions i guess. Anyways, that was with an Evolution Tune. I got better results then what people said i would, but high number could have also been caused by the dynojet

Stay away from the aftermarket throttle bodies unless you
know someone who is close to you to set it up. Otherwise
is a PITA.

Your A/C will run worse with the UDP, at least my last A/C did on my 2001 mustang not 100% sure about how they work on the S197 tho

Also, i was thinking of going with MMR UDP's just to be different, there a little cheaper. www.modularmustangracing.com in case youve never heard of them.

I have to go against the grain on this one I guess. I would go with the udp's and bbk tb. I have the delete plates as well, but have a better gain and better response out of the tb
