what is the best way to get more HP?

IDK what the options are to increase the HP in these cars.. I have a 06 Mustang that is extremely modded but there is a wide verity of places to buy upgrades for it... what are some places to look for ideas.. like cold air intake, better plugs, adjusting the computer, exhaust, or whatever else is out there..

Thx in advance!!

Depends on your budget. I assume you have a 740iL but is it an E38?

Dinan makes a supercharger kit for the M62 engine which is a pretty good boost in power. An exhaust and software will help as well. The Dinan and other S/C kits come with intakes.

The M62 has been known to make HUGE numbers (like 700+hp) if done properly but thats with FI and LOTS of cash.

I think to have better HP we should use Higher Performance Lubricants so that the friction and other heat problem can be resolved. Replace the air filter with high flow air filter this will also help to increase the HP gradually and replace the spark plug timely so that the you can receive the better services thoroughly. Also use the right gasoline to get a better HP.
