    Is anything done to the car right now? If not I would get a cat back or a tune you could eather have it tuned or buy a tuner from a performance store or the net. Other things you could do (depending on how much more hp you want) is a lid or a bigger tb.

    first mod and having 600 I would say a cat back exhaust and cold air kit. I reccomend the lm1 for a loud good feeling when you punch the pedal.lol.

    Yes, I agree with jimmybling31. Some kind if cold air kit and a cat back. I have had my WS6 for about a year, and that was the first thing I did. I got the SLP cold air kit and Loudmouth II cat back and it felt good, and sounded good to. lol. I love the sound of my Loudmouth II's.They will chase woman and children back into their houses! lol. And just for your information, check out WS6Store.com. That's where I have been buying all my stuff. They have SLP stuff, and their prices are actually cheaper than going directly to SLP. Good luck!

    if its a ws6 you do not want tpo get the slp cold air kit note that the cold air kit is for non ws6/ non ss cars, if i was u wich i was i would get a air box lid and a good filter, and exhust, maganflow is the best flowing for the car but is a lil bit salty, go to ls1sounds.com and lesson to the cars and see wich ex u want, after that i would think about geting the car to stop.

    I say get subframe connectors and save the rest. Stock exhaust seems very loud at first. When you get used to it and have the money, get a good dual exhaust with headers. Do it right the first time.

    i make 379 to the rear and had nitto 555r tires on it for 4 years and the rear is fine. nittos are not as sticky as slicks. nittos do slip when you punch it.
    a slick will kill a stock rear though.
