I recently purchased my SXT V6, I put on a cold air intake, went to a muffler shop who only really recommended to cut something on my exhaust to make it sound better, which, yes it does, but I have seen zero performance increase. In fact, my 0-60 if I go strictly buy the 0-60 on my gauge is actually slower. lol. My first day i bough the vehicle (2019 has 6k) miles. was 6.0 flat. no sport mode on, nothing. Now it is around (6.5-6.9) with the improvements. Is there anything I can do to help my 0-60 at all? I would love to just maybe help it by 1/2 a second, I know 1/2 a second is a lot, but getting it tuned seems to be the next recommended thing, but that seems to void my warranty. UGH. Any help?

Could it just be that the temperatures are causing a power loss? It's hot as balls here. You won't gain any performance from an intake or Catback btw.

Yea I’m sure heat is part of it. I’d just like to get a 1/2 second faster 0-60. Car only has 6k miles on it. Right now my 4 cyl mustang eco I traded in is faster. Lol. New exhaust?, turning seems pointless, anything is helpful to knock off that half second

Ecoboost is faster, challengers a lot heavier. If you're not spinning there's not much else you can do while keeping warranty to get faster other than trading up for an R/T
