    Forgot to mention 4.6 and 5.4 3V engines, Ford should have used the 4.6 3V and left the Mustang tune on for the 05+ Panthers, at least in the PI's and sport trim, woulda sold a lot better with 300hp stock.

    there are various levels of transmission upgrades, the most expensive being able to handle a supercharger costs like 3k with 10 in billet converter. another intake ive seen used is the trickflow track burner.. for the 2v in addition you can use a teksid block and use 2v heads both pi and non pi varients my 2 cents

    Are there links to any of these mods? I'm curious about a few of them for my '07 MGM, specifically the dual exhaust swap, and cold air or PI intake/air box swaps.

    07 will already have a PI intake. Air box may differ though. But yes I agree links would be great. Most can be found through archives by searching though.
