Well,

no simple answer to that one.

Many folk start with a CAI + tune +/- pulley. Better sounding mufflers also seem fairly popular. LCA/UCA upgrades also top the list.

Go to Evoperform.com and Lethalperformance.com. Browse the staged builds.

Search here and this forum http://www.svtperformance.com/forums/shelby-gt500-150/

Performance wise, SCT + CAI + upper pulley is a basic mod. Expect mid-500 rwhp.

Headers do little unless you go Whipple.

Suspension = FRPP springs, various brands of upper and lower rear control arms or full FRPP kits. Lethal and Evo have kits too.

The price for the Borla system looks good. Their website quotes for $1200. I am going with Bassani axel back due to the price of the Borla's being so high. Come spring, I am doing the CAI+tune combo...let me know how you install goes and your performance numbers once completed.
I am a little hesitant about the pulley install. It may invalidate the warranty!
