Re: where to start

The way I would do it is injectors, turbo, some custom tuning (intake and exhaust of course) then deal with the trans as it breaks. Injectables can be played with after everything else is in place. Keep in mind that fuel will be the big difference for you!

Re: where to start

I would start with the basics intake,exhaust,gauges,custom tuning then start moving up to injectors,turbo and trans when it finally cant take the power

Re: where to start

if a f-350 with 13 inchs of lift on 37s doing donuts doesnt compare to a mustang then idk.

start with getting gauges, intake, exhaust and custom burned chip. thenget a trans from bts so that part is covered when you start to look into injectors and turbos.
