what first?

Hey everyone need some help. Bought my svtf a couple of months ago and am about ready to start modding it. I want to start out with some thing small money wise say around $200. Just wandering what would be the best bang for the buck so to speak. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Try a cam gear if you are familiar with setting one up

Check my sig: The Steeda shorf shift is a great piece for the money..ford should have supplied that part instead of theirs.

Poly tranny mounts are dirt cheap (~$20) and made a really nice difference. Some people have had problems with these inserts squeezing out, but I have about 2000 miles on mine with no problems. If you want, VF-Engineering makes a nice mount, but its a bit more. With those two, you will be far less than $200 even with paying a shop to install.
