Lightbulb What should I get to upgrade

So today on the highway, a 2011 mustang Shelby cobra pulled up besides me and just laughed. I know he was just being an ass, just like I am to mustangs but I need to know what I should do to my car to upgrade performance. I'm probably gonna go with a cold intake pretty soon, but what else should I do besides SC. And how much does it cost. I know this thing is a BEAST, I just want it to be "THE BEAAST". And I know this has been discussed before, so sorry. And this is an SS if that changes any suggestions.

Might as well throw a maggie on it. If you don't go sc then cam, headers, cai and tune would wake this car up a lot.

You're awful vague on what you want. More power is what everyone wants. It comes down to how much more power you want and how much $$ you plan to spend.

i hope you aren't about to spend all this money just because a mustang cobra passed you on the highway. there's always something better out there. you could put 10 grand into your car a dodge viper could still pull up and smoke you.

be happy w/ what you have unless you really wanted to upgrade the power all along. i look at the SS as a hell of a machine and i don't give a damn about any mustang, they all look alike and are a dime a dozen

Don't worry about what he's laughing at, he might be hearing something funny on his radio for all you know. You've got a cool car as it sits, and it's got plenty of power to give you those "happy feelings" when you need a boost. Laugh at him because he got a mustang. What a fool. Meybe someday the poor lout will figure out what cool is, and trade up to a great car.

Leave Mr. Mustang alone. Obviously he is happy driving his wife's car.

Just take the high road and smile back.

Don't worry about more power unless it's a hobby of yours. More power is really not a great $$$ to fun ratio for most folks that don't visit the track. You won't use more than you have now very often, and it's just likely to get you in trouble if you do.

I was just using the story and an intro to me saying I wanted some more power . He does have a "faster" car but mine looks a whole lot cooler. But I was just trying to get a basis on where I shall start. Any recommendations on cai? New generation? And how do I go about tune ups?

You don't know what he was laughing at. Maybe he was on the phone. Or maybe the passenger was there. You just could not see the passenger because he/she was in the driver's lap tickling his feet
Don't let it get to you man. I love my car and in my eyes it is the best car out there. I don't care what other people have. It's like a girlfriend or a wife. She should be all you care about even if you see millions of other hotter babes out there. If you are happy with her it is all that matters.

You can always get an E-Force kit for around $5500.00 and you'll be able to match his power ...
