I have a stock zts (auto) and I want to make it somewhat fast. I have already lost a race to a friends ford probe (slow as hell. how did i lose?), and I want to be sure that I can beat it really soon. Also, I'd like to be able to beat a 2000 V6 Mustang. What kind of mods will put me there? I think I want to stick to basic bolt ons, but which ones will put my there? I dont think I want exhaust either.

There is really no point in letting you car breath in more air with out letting it out. Go with a Volant intake, 65 mm throtle body, under drive pullies, Superchip... that would be about it unless you want to hook up the exhaust. With out the exhaust you'll have a hard time running against any mustang.

Diablo Spor Chip, Full exhaust, Intake, TB. There are a ton of options. Just depends on your budget.

yah your gonna NEED an exaust, I'd recommend a Magnaflow, what I got, cause it sounds great...good luck
I second the "Magnaflow" vote......

Yeah I realize that the exhaust is a big part of the speed that I need. Its just that thats a big buy. I already ordered the 2 piece fc udp, and i am definately going with the volant. I am also considering headers for my stock exhaust (jt or obx racing) because I hear they add a bit of torque. Will these basics at least allow me to smoke the probe?

Not really, you can get an MBRP catback for 199.

Magnaflow and if you can afford it Borla even. Def go with a high flow cat, good intake of your choice and a aftermarket TB. As already stated by jisturm, it all depends upon your budget. [;)]

I was looking on focustrends.com and they have a "ported throttle body" for only $55. Does anyone know if this is 65mm or even a good part at all? If it is, I will buy it right away.

not the same as a 65mm, its just enlarged stock one. dont get obx headers, get jba shorties or a full race(will eliminate your cat) unless u wanna stay legit get a hi flow cat, exhaust,udp,,,blah blah
