Talking Picking up a new SVT this week...what to buy??

Hey guys, first time poster here. Picking up a 2004 Black SVT sometime this week. Just got rid of my 2007 Mustang GT. First question...what are the color names for the colors? Like, I know with the Mustangs we had Grabber Orange or Screamin Yellow.

Secondly, I'm going to have about ~$2000 left over from the buy, what would you guys suggest doing first? Also, the car needs a new hood, so what type would you prefer, and where to get these parts? Thanks in advance guys!

Thanks for the warm welcome, guys! So far it has a cold air and a short throw shifter. Not sure if it has a tune or not. I have to drive about 2 hours to pick it up so I'll ask the guy when I get there.
Thanks for the colors, jgustafson.

67mm throttle body. everyone loves those.

and depending on where you live (like if it rains or snows a lot) you probably wanna get a short ram intake, instead of the cold air, K&N's are recommended quite a bit, my friend has one and works great.

also for suspension you could get front and rear strut bars (both pretty cheap)

the list goes on, talk to the SVT guys haha.

I currently live in NC, but I'm going to be stationed in Florida in June, so I think the CAI will be okay for now. I like the lights in your avatar, sigg. What kind? Any bigger pictures?

I would also recommend saving that 2k and first thing I would do is find out if you'll need a new clutch. Iv always noticed that everytime someone buys one used they need a new clutch very soon.
