    Where to begin

    Hey everyone, if everything goes right I will be buying a 02 WS6 this weekend and I'm already thinking about tinkering with it.

    Where should I begin, I'm sure there are tons of easy mods for these cars...could someone steer me in the right direction.

    My overall goal for the car is to make it a little more aggressive sounding and dress up the appearance as much as I can (in a tasteful way..not boy racer a.k.a. honda style) And of course...more power and better handling are always a plus. lol

    Thanks for any tips you guys can give me.

    Basic Bolt On's list and some explanations

    That should get you started on power adders.

    I would start modding either the suspension or the intake/exhaust systems so when you start adding power adders the car will be able to handle and breath easier. First thing you'd wanna do if not done so already is to get a lid. SLP ones are most popular and efficent and then you can decide what path you wanna take and what your goals are for the car.

    Personally I'd start off with strano performance , springs, pan hard bar, koni's and sway bars. can't do shit until you can handle the power. then i'd remove any weight possible. ( plenty of threads about that.

    air intake, lid volant however you want to do, and a simple computer tune ( probabally mail order to start) (eliminate CAGS in a 6 speed and firm up the shifts in an auto.

    can throw basic go fast goodies on like plugs and better wires.

    what color will your car be?

    Hopefully welcome to the club!

    ONLY use a mail order tune if you cannot get a real tune from a professional shop. Don't waste your time with handhelds, either.

    go to ws6store.com and look at the decals. also, there is a $15 duplicolor caliper kit that sells at local stores. those are just some cheap things.
