I don't think its worth it but that is just me. I like to build my car up on a budget. I think with a little searching and some talks with our sponsors you can get the parts you need for less money

The thing is when I am only 17 and I get the car I will not have alot of money to spend on mods. What could I do to the car for that price? Also does anyone know a good place in Mass to install the mods because I am a car newb and do not know how to do anything

I personally think you should go and spend about $50 - $150 on some tools first to save your money in the long run. I would buy some metric sockets a ratchet, screwdriver set, cheap jack with stands, and buy as you need or even rent borrow.
The lid and the loudmouth exhaust should be things you can do yourself.
here do some reading on what you can do your self
that should help you out. A shop charges about $75 an hour for labor. so I like to do most/all my own work to save money. Plus its FUN for me

that is the "loud mouth" exhaust
check out ls1sounds.com to figure out what "catback" exhaust sound you like.
For tools I just go to the local sears b/c if you break them they replace them for free no questions asked.
don't worry about all the questions you are better asking searching as long as you can before you spend money that way you can't waste it.
This is the install instructions for SLP's loud mouth exhaust. Its a catback system. Check out how to install it and if you think you can tackle the job you will save yourself some money.
so what other questions do you have?

If your looking for tools the advice about going to sears was very good. Just to clarify though you have to get craftsmans from them to let you just walk in and swap your broken tools. Companions cost less and are made by craftsman but they dont have the same warranty or durability as the craftsmans. In the long run spending the money now on craftsmans will save you alot down the line.

I did all the "FREE" mods I could first from Install University..Great site!
My car responded VERY well to them. Do all those first then do alot of research and keep upgrading it as time and money allows. That's my .02 worth

- I take "the" out of
If you are just going for the sound of the exhaust, then I would recomend a Power stick muffler. Mostly like a slp loudmouth, but alot cheaper. I bought one three years ago for my 86 camaro I was rebuilding, and then bought a 2000 trans am and put it on that. Nice tone to it, and it welds right in. the price range is around 60 and the install was around 30. If you google powersticks, and run across a company called chambered exhaust, then you will be on the right track.
