CAI = Cold Air Intake Basically, cold air is more dense than hot air, meaning you get more air into the combustion cylinders with translates into more power. You are looking at 10Hp from this addition, 15 if High flow

Depends what you want to do. You want it to sound better? get a new exhaust with straight through polyglas muffling. You car will sound amazing plus you get like 20-30HP if high flow exhaust. costing around 1k for a shop to install it, maybe around 500-600 yourself

If you are lookin to spend like 5k+ (which most people arent) Twin Turbo kits add TONS of Hp and high end Torque. From a 4.3L engine, with a TT you can get like 100+ Hp increase. Of course, you should get it done by a shop and make sure they install a kit(Blow off valve, intercooler, wastegate, bigger CC injectors, new fuel rails, tune the ECU, new intake and exhaust manifolds, usually, and other little stuff)

Little things you can do are like Pulse Plugs. Which are spark plugs but add like 6% better Hp and Torque or something, look them up on the internet. I have them on my car and they engine sounds better and you get better gas milage

if you are really looking for massive Hp gains, you could stroker kit the engine. This increases the amount of travel the cylinder goes through, increasing the air in the cylinder and adding lots of Hp. I think the LS430's Bore x Stroke are around 3.9 x 3.6 ish. Not positive. But i am almost sure the stroke could be improved to about 4 using a stroker kit. Again, this should be done by a shop and this will cost a lot, probably more than the twin turbo.

Other little things you can do are bigger fuel injectors, bigger throttle body, if you have over 100k miles, get your engine rebuilt, independant fuel managment system (you know, from fast and furious, the laptop sitting in the passenger seat, manages fuel), new cam with bigger lobes, heat wrap the intake manifold, Cold air intake, pulse plugs, high output alternator, and pretty much replacing extremely heavy parts with super lightweight ones.

Regarding the Roll during turns. there are only a couple options
1.get a rear sway bar (otherwise known as stabilizer bar) it prevents the car from swaying on high speen cornering and therefore improving your cornering, giving you a much stiffer feel.
2. Get stiffer springs and shock. the springs will help prevent the outside of the car from getting pushed into the ground on a high speen turn. The shocks will do relatively the same and push the tires into the ground for better traction



----o, btw, i am reading this banner below this reply box, and it says K&N air intake + 2007 Shelby Mustang = 53 more Hp. This is possibly the most complete BS i have ever seen. Unless the shebly mustang gets its intake air from the exhaust, you cant get 53Hp from air intake. it's just not possible
