    what mods should i go with?

    okay i am thinking of taking my car down to the shop here soon to start the modding. First things first is im getting the sfc's as i have ttops. Now where should i go, 85mm throttle body and cams? or should i go headers w/ exhaust? Not trying to speed an outrageous amount but do what the most bang for my buck. I was also thinking nos but i really wanted a more hp increase that doesnt need refilling all the time. plus i dont think i trust myself running nos as i do sometimes have a heavy foot.. Anyone else got maybe some other suggestions as what to do?

    Do it right or not at all....

    for headers: stainless steal
    Y pipe: no cats, again stainless
    catback: anything but flowmaster
    Airlids: SLP sometimes hits the hood..mine didn't
    Throttle body/intake manifold: don't waste ur time with 85mm, go right to 90 with a FASTLSX

    these part's arnt cheap but you'll thank yourself later on..

    being that you live in cali, you need to get shorty headers.
    get the catback of your choice along with a 224/224 cam kit. have them installed and tuned.
    above will pass emissions and give you an easy 50 rear whell h.p bump.
