how can i get more hp out of my 01 mustang gt?

I want to work on my 01 mustang gt and get more hp out of it but don't know what to do. i've already have a k/n airfilter, headers back exaust stystem, ebach suspension system. Should i keep my engine and fix it up? What could be done to the engine to boost hp without a super/turbo charger? please help me out, i'm open to any idea.

yeah I'd get a supercharger, I wouldn't want turbos on a rwd car. Theres a lot of porsche 911 owners that weren't payin attention when they floored it around a corner and the turbos kicked in. Not pretty

How about boring it out or putting bigger cams on it? Does that year come with limited slip differentials? If not that is a good investment

It probably does, but if it doesnt you can always weld the ring and pinion together

I was watching a few big block 8.70 class cars running saturday night and they were on the bottle. Not one ricer in the bunch. Nitrous has been around alot longer then ricers.......If you hate it fine, but it doesn't mean its bad...

True, it is my opinion but I think its okay for people that race their cars, not drive them

Bigger throttle body, better fuel injectors, fuel pump, and get a ECU upgrade from Superchips. Concentrate on getting more air and fuel into your engine, see what you can accomplish with out a supercharger or turbo or nitrous first.

Superchargers are a sound investment, I dont know why you wouldnt want one. Mucho power from them.

Nitrous is good. People who say nitrous is rice are stupid. Calling Nitrous NOS is stupid. Nitrous was first used in cars by Smokey Yunick in NASCAR in the 50s.
