    Headers, CAI and a tune, but if I had to do mine all over again for as much as I have spent already would have just bolted on a maggie and been done with it all.

    Less the exhaust system listed below. OEM is fine
    Go to ebay for diablo tuner U7193 (the risk is the hand held has not been re-set)

    breather filter - $44
    catch can - $150
    Diablo Predator - $150 off of ebay
    borla exhaust - $895 (not necessary)
    CAI - $250
    CAGS eliminated - $11
    160 t*stat if you run her hard for an extended period of time [eliminates heat soak] - $20
    DynoJet tune = $200 (my neighbor's racing buddy)
    NGK plugs - 9.99 each
    331hp 346 torque

    well he has a nice list of mods but not all of those are performance mods.

    1500 bucks, Get Pacesetter Longtubes and a catback. should put you in the 320-330 rwhp.

    Pacesetters 525 shipped.... and a flowmaster for about 500-600 shipped.

    A catch can is installed pre intake manifold to catch the blow by oil in the throttle body.

    And you don't have to keep repeating yourself.. we all can read what you wrote the first time.

    about the t-stat. if you look back through some of the older threads...(i think it was in external engine) a number of people debated on going with a 160 or staying with the stock temp. all I can tell you on it is I still run a stock one, but have my fans set to come on earlier.
    hey man keep asking questions cause lots of the guys on here have been doing this for a long time

    Thanks for the advice...How did you set up your fans to come on earlier? also lets say i get lond tube headers...does the BRAND really matter..i was looking around and saw the pacesetter headers and they are pretty cheap..What your thought on that...thanks again
