Stall converters are great for automatics. ...or so I have read. (I have a manual, so I have no first hand knowledge on this one........)

Lightweight aluminum driveshaft, since you have an '05....and the D/S had issues in the early 05 models at speeds above 112 mph. Ford can tell you if your VIN number is effected by the '05 driveshaft pinions coming apart. This would be the first thing I would look into ....(especially since you are going F/I down the road)

-You have the JLT CAI, did it require custom tunes?....if not I would suggest a tuner and any 91 or 93 octane tunes from Bama.

-You have the 8.8 rear end already, but you might look into getting some 4.10 gears for it.

off topic a bit, since you were asking about PEERFORMANCE MODS, but a few suggestions on appearance ones for you.

+1 shorty antennae, if you don't have one already.
+1 tint. (a MUST have)....search Taco Bill MOLESKIN before you get tinted.

+5 post this message in the 4.6 liter section as well, you are in the 4.0 section right now, you could get more replies from the GT guys and gals.
