the BS delete is honestly the most amazing mod i've ever done...its not hard at all if you're competent but if you're worried it does come with directions so the mechanic shouldn't have any problems at doing it

the "dog bone" mount is the one that you will see the most gain from (in drivability,/fun factor) and it won't make your car shake a lot like the others will. it also doesn't require engine support

i highly recommend the ford racing focus dynamic suspension if you can get it, it has some hardcore struts and springs that make the car handle like a dream. its also not too low but low enough!

bushing kit is excellent

on the sway bars, if you get them don't go too big or your car will oversteer hardcore, which is cool and all in controlled situations but scary when you're not expecting it in the rain

as far as a mostly "show" mod but still helpful, the SVT pedals are amazing and i enjoy their feel and honestly makes it better to drive, PLUS they look sick!

thats my 2 cents, those were some of my favorite mods and were well worth the money i paid for them, talk to mike (b16sir1991) about the ford parts, he can get you some major deals plus inform you about upcoming specials and promotions!

IMO, you should take care of performance and handling kind of at the same time.. Like intake then exhaust then suspension kit, then header and cams...i think i'm just telling you what i did..... lol....

well if you get copper autolite 104's and gap them like that.... its a less than 20$ mod... so i would say its worth it whenever you have a 20 in your pocket.
