So I have just recently dropped my car off at "Mustang Muscle in High Ridge, Missouri". they are adding a few things and finally dialing everything in on dyno. my big question...what more can i do N/A to get gains. When I get my car back and have Final HP/TQ #'s i will post them.
Thanks in advance for anyone giving me advice, much appreciated.

I would be careful with My Spark Disappeared coils. Ive had a few of them fail over the years with very low mileage. The OEM coils are the best coils out there for them AFAIK. If youre still running the stock cams, thats a place you can pick up some power but you have 4 of them so its expensive and you will need a tune after changing them. If you do cams, a throttle body may be a good investment too but I wouldnt change the TB without cams. With all of that said, a blower or turbo would be one of best investments you can make regarding money invested vs power gained. A set of cams is about half the price of a blower kit.

Throttle body would only be needed if you're seeing a restriction at high rpm. It may or may not be needed. The stock throttle body is 57mm. I don't know if better cams are going to flow enough to see a restriction. If your going to buy injectors, i would recommend Siemens deka4 80s. They are the same price as other injectors but you are likely to never outgrow them, even if you decide to add forced induction.
