    iam fairly new at modifying a car since this is my first truck. i wanted to know does installing exhaust early make a big differance performance wise or does it just make noise? iam all about adding stuff to my truck that i will use and not just for looks.... any other performance things i should consider? intakes? chips?

    Thanks

    Best bang for buck is befinetly the supercharger. You can get Doug Thorley Long Tube headers, a CAI and the MAF calibrator for under a grand and be pretty happy but do not expect much!

    To be more specific to the OP Patrick is talking about the headers, intake and calibrator

    A off road y-pipe is one of your best choices for first mod. That or a cold air intake (CAI) I just added a k&N filter because the stock intake is technically a cold air intake since it draws from the fender well. It's just the factory intake tube is a little kinked/restrictive. I have put a off-road y-pipe on every car I've had. It's the best way to get guaranteed power; at least 8+ horsepower. It added 18 to my last mustang according to the dyno. I'm putting one on mine as soon as it get's here tomorrow or friday. I've already put a flowmaster on it.
