New to me 08 gt500

Picked up Monday, 5k miles but looks like a little of the work has already been done. TVS 2.3L upgrade, throttle body, cai, ford racing catback, roush trailing arms and hop kit, short shifter, 3.73 gears and a procal 2 in the trunk. Looks like a new radiator and heat exchanger as well.

She runs like a champ, anxious to get it on a dyno amd check out the tune and see some figures. Its got a 3" pulley, is that still a common upgrade even with the stronger charger? Aside from better tires what's next?

Been building on cars for years, but a little new to these beasts. Couldn't be happier with my new ride! Hope to meet some new people locally with more experience than I.
