    I've had the car for about a year and a half and just recently bought wheels and tires and the prokit for it. I've done all the free mods, slp ls6 intake air lid k&n filter, magnaflow exaust, edlelbrock strut tower brace and adj panhard bar, powermax tuner, and tinted the rear window. Anyway to answer your question, probly 50/50.

    Depends. I consider my drag and street wheels performance mods. The drag ones for obvious reasons, but the street ones because of the wide footprint on the rear.

    I would say 97% performance.
    Maybe 98%.

    on second thought I think I'm more like 90 performance, 10 appearance..
    most of my mods are and will be performance wise, I got some decals and emblems here and there but for the most part I want the "stock" slash "sleeper" look ..no ram air hood none of that.. but hey I smile when I "piston bitxch slap" other people's rides..
