Next Mod?

Alright, I plan on ordering my Hypnotic tune this week finally! Now my question is, what should I get to go along with it. I have a budget of about $500 so I can get the Xcal2 and something around $100 or get the Xcal1 and have a little more money to spend. What would you guys suggest? I do have a laptop to take advantage of the datalogging feature and I think that would be pretty cool, but I don't know how much I'd actually use that feature.

you might want to get hypnotic's SR intake. I think he sells them with a tune as a package too, not sure, but you can ask him. everyone I've heard running those together are quite happy with their purchase.

Oh, I have a K&N drop-in, I know it doesn't help much but I'm not really sure I see putting any more money into an SRI or CAI. I do have the rear engine mount also so I think the STS would compliment that really well.......what about MSD coil and plug wires? Also which XCAL would you get?

I would suggest both the STS and the UDP if you can swing that along with the SCT.

I'd go with the steeda shortram intake, it made my car sound much better and gave me noticable gain.

STS, since you already have the mount.

i would get the xcal-2 because it allows you to so a lot more over the xcal-1 and the price difference is small($100). I would also go with the sts, preferably the ford racing over the steeda as it is the same exact product only cheaper.
