What has been your favorite mod that you have done to your mustang? And why?
1-BMR Differential bushing bk049
Car now feels more solid with extra NVH but worth it during pulls tbh
2- RST clutch

Is that the kit that comes with the cold air intake, throttle body, & Ford Performance programmer? If so did you have the dealer install it? I’m kinda wondering if it’s worth the $1,300 or not.
Sorry I didn't see your question until now...

Yes that is the kit. I paid $675 (shipping included) from Levittown Ford back in 2017. Then a local speed shop did the install for about $150 (had to be an ASE Certified shop for warranty), but it is very easy to install yourself since the warranty would no longer apply (they only covered until the end of the original new car 3yr warranty and those cars are all too old now).

Note that the horsepower and torque gains (that brings it to the same spec as the direct injection cars) requires the use of 91 octane gas. I suspect that Ford had to detune it to run on the crap gasoline for the market at large. The FRPP tune likely undoes that detune but requires the 91 octane for those of us that are willing. Direct injection prevents the pre-detonation (knock) regardless of the octane used.

Yeah I was just wondering. That kit is now $1300 at least for the gen3 coyotes. But it also comes with a Ford Performance programmer as well. As far as the ASE certification I believe it has to be a RED certification or Ford dealer to keep warranty. Mine’s a 2021 so I’ve got plenty of warranty left. Thanks for the info.

Saw the thread and haven't replied in a few days because I needed to think on it. To date, my favorite one mod would have to be the Steeda axel backs. Had an X pipe for a while and adding the axel backs makes this car sound super mean. LOVE the aggressive tone lower RPM and the raspy face ripping sounds at high RPM. Love me some performance obviously but I really did buy this car for the Coyote's voice.

Yep, mine is the older 2016 GT (gen2) which used a different kit M-9603-M8A. Cheaper, but that won't help you. Also came with a rudimentary programmer (ProCal 2, I think).

FP350 hood vent is my fav mod so far. Big project for me as a diy, looks great, and could grill some steaks on there if the need arises

Looks like it should be that way from factory!

Is it this one?
https://www.steeda.com/steeda-555-7022-s550-clutch-spring


Seems lot of people are recommending this one, for under $30 it's worth it.

I am starting to understand the mod addiction. I wanna do the clutch spring and trunk pop strut kit, but at the same time keep my Bullitt as stock as possible. You guys aren't making this easy, dammit!!
Yep, that’s the one. I nearly traded-in my Mustang after a month or so of ownership because I despised the clutch engagement. Swapped the clutch spring and look at me now — still love the car after five years.

Currently it's either Steeda's IRS braces & alignment dowels (so most of the STH kit) or the HH-pipe with factory active exhaust.

After this weekend, probably Borla ATAK + HH-pipe.

Picked up a discounted Steeda H pipe that someone had purchased but never installed...Best $125 for grins I have spent so far! With the factory tuneable exhaust it changes a good exhaust note into an epic exhaust note! Drops about 7lbs and also allows for easy access to adjust your emergency brake.
