Default New 2010 GT and dont know what to do next!!

Ok, just got a new '10 GT. Im wondering what I should do for the first mod? I just had metallic silver stripes put on, but I dont consider that a mod. Is there a chip or programmer yet? Id like to do something in the way of performance. Im planning on a super charger, but that will have to wait a couple months. Any suggestions?

Congrats, the car looks great.

It's basically the same exact motor as the 05-09 so I imagine there are performance CAIs and tuning available already... I'd check to see if they have anything available yet.

What steve said Brenspeed is already offering a tune using Xcal3 for the 2010 gt's I believe bamachips has and also check out VMP tunning, C&L so far is the only company i've seen with a 2010 CAI and they haven't posted any hp gains just a flowchart here's the link to that If it was me I would just drop a K&N in add a tune and call it good for now maybe a more aggressive sounding axleback? Btw your car is very nice man I like those stripes and yes they count as a mod Lowering always looks great first thing I did to mine that and a wheel swap. Cdc allready has a chin spoiler out for the car not sure if their shipping em yet could contact them? Partsforcheap and several other places have the ford acc gt500 rear diffuser available and roush is offering their rear diffuser&wing as well allready

Personally I would just drive it for awhile and break in the new motor (I would be happy with 315hp). Maybe after 2k miles or an oil change, I would think about a tune or cat-back if you have the money.
