Steeda sport springs..Steeda Tri Ax shifter and Delta Flow 3 chamber flow masters...as well as from Graphics Express....their "Cowl" hood strip (black) and Black MUSTANG letters for the rear valance..
Now to get them installed......can't wait.
Love the '02...lots of torque....just wish I had the guts to drive it hard....but at 55 years old...and the car 6 weeks "New"..still getting the "Feel" of it.....
Would love to squeeze about 40 more ponies out of it, without major surgery...
Maybe under drive pulleys...and any other suggestions ?????

STEW...Major Surgery.....anything that leaves weird springs, doo hickeys, bolts and spots of oil on the garage floor....
Cold air kit will require computer tweeking, won't it ???
Plus the stang feels pretty "Torquey"...and don't get a lot out of first anyway....won't the 3.73's multiply that.....
Not afraid to tweek the computer...just don't want to lose any power...really ignorant to these "Computer" controlled cars and have this weird feeling that if you raise the PSI in your tires, the computer knows it, yells at you and slows the whole thing dowm...
IN OTHER WORDS I'M AFRAID TO TOUCH THE DARN THING !!!!
Guess what I'm asking...is anything that changes air flow, fuel mix, etc etc...dependent on a chip that covers these changes...I know it's a dumb question but what do you expect from an OLD GUY ?????

Hmmm, now that you mention it, I think you're right. I think I read a few posts here in this forum that the SN95's with the 4.6L need to have a recalibrated chip if an aftermarket cold air induction is added. Oh man, I can't remember. I guess I'm spoiled by 5.0 MAF EEC computer and being able to slap on just about anything I want (cam, intake, heads, gears, headers) without having a chip burned.

I forget how similar, yet different the Foxbody's are from the SN95's! Forgive me buddy, maybe I should shut up and let someone with more experience and knowledge give you their opinion! I don't wanna steer you wrong!

As for the 3.73 R&P gear and first gear? Trust me. The SN95 aint got nothing on the 5.0's when it comes to torque in 1st and I'm gonna pop 3.73's in whenever I get the money for the labor.

Don't fear the gear, Eddie! It'll be the best bang for the buck as a mod!

Eddie,
this cars really resond to exhaust upgdrades! I wouldn't go as far as headers just yet but I think that you can go a cat back exhaust and pulleys and not have to mess with the computer. Also try a K&N filter with these changes to help out but be sure that therre is not too much oil on the new K&N or it will clog your Mass air sensor.
Besides if you got all the above upgrades to help handling already I think the mods I suggested will only help.
Good Luck

Thanks guys....and hey STEW...you better not "Shut Up"...your advice is always good....
Any idea what kind of Ponies "Hi Flow" (legal) cats will bring...someone told me 25 to 30...but that sounds awful high to me...
And JOE...I'm kind of leaning your way with mods to the exhaust and the K&N only...gonna put the 3 chamber Delta Flows on and am looking to do some research on some good cats...the K&N is on the shopping list and thanks for the advice on the oil....

Hi, I just put some Steeda underdrive pulley's on my '01 and it really responded well. The buttometer says ~10-15HP. The sound really improved too! That was an added bonus. The install took about ~2 hours. I had some troble with Alternator pulley, so the two hours includes a trip to Kragen for the swap. Just a thought, but it was the best $150 I've spent on an upgrade ;-)

Cold air kit shouldn't need a new chip calibration, but the 90 degree turn in most can mess up the MAF sensor calibration. You can get MAF like Pro-M that are calibrated for the turn. Some people do okay without recalibrating if they leave the screen in front of the MAF.
