Help with mods please

Thanks in advance for responding..Heres the deal.. I have a 03 Gt model with an auto tranny.. I want to get some power under the Hood and Not really sure what I should do..In my opinion, the low end power of the car sucks, its so slow. I don't know shit about engines so any help you can give me on what mods I need would be awesome... Recommend some Names please..thanks


My car might be slow, but at least it looks nice!

my first test drive was in a 03 Gt Auto. I was totally displeased with the acceleration. I think its just a thing with the autos because soon after i was able to get behind the wheel of a manual and i was totally pleased. I still think manual is the only way to go for speed, unless of course you have a 500 hp mustang or something haha

they say if you have a sports car you should be able to drive it like a sports car..and in most cases you can only do that with a manual thumbsup

but anyway..low end power can be increased by getting either the AEM pulley or unorthodox pulleys

another cheap, effective mod for increasing low end torque is the TRD Air Filter.
