i would say tune for sure. And motor mounts are good but some say you dont need them all just do a search and find which ones are the the best for the money.

tune...iriduim plugs are useless (controversial issue you can search it)..after the tune get a lower mount...or vice versa...both are well needed...taylor wires on the stock coil are also a good combo.

I would get her tuned then i would get a nice cat-back (borla or magnaflow) or lower it (Eibach) there's nothing better than the aggressive sound and look you get from a new preformance exhuast and a lowering kit

backpreassure changes just move the power to other parts of the curve. Like a full 3inch on a stock svt will loose a tad low end but make up for it with a gain midrange and highend.
