used a own a mustang gt. from that experience id go with a k&n air filter or intake, throtle boddy spacer, bigger throttle body, or atleast clean your throttle body out, high conductor spark plug wires, high flow cat. two chamber muffler (if any at all) thats what i did with the mustang and it worked well
