    $2,000 to spend

    In the next two to three months i'll have about $2,000 to spend on my car what do you think I should do? I have Shortie headers, K&N FIPK, throttle body extension, and a LM 2. I really dont wanna have to replace my headers but im probably gonna have too to get more power. Any suggestions??

    if it's an auto get a stall, longtubes, and a tune. maybe you could throw a cam in there too before the tune. I don't know what prices are for things installed, I install everything myself

    for about 2k, get a stall, shift kit, trans cooler, pacesetters and tune.
    huge gain with above.

    Im in about the same situation u are in.My plan is going with Pacesetter Coated LTs, ORY, LS6 intake manifold, Torque Converter, Port Throttle Body Cam, Pulley,(Maybe 3:73s) Tune, and you gotta get some Drag Radials or Slicks.(Hopefully I will get all this done by around the end of summer)That will be around $2000 - $3000 or a little more depending if u need a TC and what you have to pay to be installed.

    i keep hearing more and more people running drag radials on the streets. I want to get some but ive heard they dont last long at all in a daily driver and are very scary in the rain. what do you guys think?? my dd is about to get a lot more power and i know im not gonna be able to get it all to the ground. I am however about to buy some 18x9.5's for the front with yokohoma avs's and 18x10.5 for the rear but am in a dilemma about getting drag radials. help!!

    That's what they're for pretty much, street legal slicks. I have heard that the nitto 555r lasts pretty good, they even advertise up to 15,000 miles on their website. There are stickier DRs, but they don't last as long. I researched pretty deep into the best DR for the street and that's the one I have decided on. Looks like in my 17s I can get em for about 150 each
