CAI-cold air induction, there are many kinds of cais to many to list but what they do is get a more dense volume of air into your motor for better perfomance
some have to have the computer retuned (tunable induction or c and l) and some dont (mmr) everyone who wants to compete at the higher levels has to have one of these

Tuners-tuners change your computer to run at different octanes and to change things like shift pressure, ignition timing, rpms at idol and driving, top speed and may other things
there are two kinds of tuners that i know of (SCT excalibrator 2) and the (preditor tuner)

Exhaust- exhaust is a great compliment to an intake the exhaust lets the exhaust gasses flow out of the back of your car at a greator rate. the exhaust also makes a much better sound for your car over stock. there are many choices of exhaust. way to many to list. there are also versions of exhaust. you can get duals such as true duals ( no connector between pipes), h pipe duals, and x pipe duals, you can also get a prochamber which is alot like an h pipe and an x pipe mixed. the other way you can go is a single muffler which is just a muffler replacement. this changes the sound alot and def boost hp. this is the first upgrad you should do and its the one that will make you the most happy because it changes the whole attitud and sound of the car

I know that C&L is the most popluar one right now, but StreetSmart design makes a CAI with a carbon fiber housing and it requires a reflash. Don't know if that's much help but the have it at MossMustangs.com

there's alot of mods you can do:

underdrive pully
Cobra injectors with correct spacers for fuel rail
headers
exhaust
intake
tb spacer
throttle body
better tires
drive shaft
ECU programers
I havent seen any flywheels or aftermarket clutches yet
LSD or Locking Diff
Supercharger
Not sure what turbo kits are available IF you make one yourself

all depends about the tires...maybe you have tried slicks before...perhaps the use of stock tires and or smaller than average tires havent given you any gains.
