A few mods...

I'll post picks and a video later but I did the K&N CAI last week, the Hypertech Max Energy programming today, and I do my Magnaflow dual exhaust tomorrow. I'm not sure how much hp I've picked up. When I trailer my Mustang down to Dasilvas this spring, I'll get it dyno'd and see what I can put down with it.

Ya, I'm certainly not expecting anything earth shattering. I bit more responsiveness, firmer shifts, and most importantly... An aggressive sound.

I was very impressed with the sound change on WOT with the K&N. It's nice. The exhaust should really kick ass. (It had better $$$).

Does the Max energy have a higher octane setting, or is it only 87 oct? Sounds like a good combo. Air in,air out and a tune to bring it all together. Nice. Keep us posted on your thoughts.

Yes it does. And I like the sharper shifts. The entire package makes a bit of a difference for sure. Nothing major, but just enough that it doesn't feel like you're driving a tank. I'm excited to get the exhaust done tomorrow.

The Hypertech does other octane settings as well, but I chose to stay with the reg grade fuel program. I know fuel will go back up eventually and I'd rather not be paying premium prices when it does.
