Wink Chicks with trucks!! ;)

Hey guys I just bought a brand new 04 sonic blue lightning in september, and need some help on what mods i should do first to it. I know some stuff about cars/trucks, but I don't know where to start. Any ideas?? I'm lookin at a pulley/programmer package that will put me at 450 hp. Thanks!!

Kristin

Welcome! I would go with a 4# pulley, cold air intake, and programmer (from a reputable tuner). That prolly won't get you up to 450 Hp though. More likely around 420-430 RWHP. That is what I found from my experience.

Headers and exhaust. Not only does it help performance, but it sounds so much nicer than stock Ford exhaust.

450 isn't a lot these days. here are a few pix of the combo I am working on. It should be 800-900hp.

Silver Streak is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
450 really isn't a lot when you consider a stock L2 makes about 430. They claim 380, but most are at or above 350 at the wheels in stock trim.
