    Flowmaster exhaust but what do I do next

    hey everybody

    I just bought a 99 Tans AM and from what I know it has a flow master exhaust and a K&N filter in the factory air box. What can I do to increase performance. Bolt on's mainly I don't want to go crazy yet I have to absorb the cost of my new toy.
    What is the best cold air intake to install? What else can I do and in what order?

    It has new plugs and I just changed all the fluids to synthetic at the dealer. I am open to options. Lets say that I have $1000 budget to put add on;'s how would you guys spend it in my situation????

    Thanks a lot.....

    I agree with above and ditch that K&N filter and get a cheap paper filter.

    i would like to know why ditch the filter and my 2 cents are new ring and pinion if its an auto get 3.73 manual 4.10 and headers with Y pipe or
    nitrous like a 100 shot to be on the safe side

    though you wont be able to get all these for a grand. But any of these would be a good start.

    Hum! Everybody seems to be on the same page on this. Thanks a lot!!

    I bought my car from a GM dealer so I don't know what the other guy did to it but I raced a 2000 Corvette from 30mph to 130mph and he got me by 1/2 to 3/4 of a car and I don't know who he was it was just on HGW 2 and he was standard I could hear him power shift. I heard after fromn someone that knew him that he had an exhaust and a cold air intake. Would that be normal a normal distance from him at those speeds? Man what a rush!!! I was just coming out from the dealer and he twisted my rubber arm. Next time I don't want him to pull me....

    headers and stall would put you right around $1k. I would save a few more bucks and get a tune with those 2 and reap more benefits from them.

    As far as the race. That seems about right although I would've thought with him having exhaust and intake and you just being stock for the most part he should've pulled a little more than that but that still seems about right give or take a little.

    Oh! I wanted a 6 speed but I had a bad snowmobile accident so pushing the clutch in is no can do.... It is still fun with an auto when there's power.

    it slips more at idle whichs makes for a better launch, and also helps you gain RPM faster

    one of my friends found a 2,800 tci for me on ebay for $140 shipped, i love it, sometimes you can find a deal to save some money for other mods

    There's snow here until April so time I have for sure. I'm going to start with a lid or a lid Kit from SLP one is $300 and the other is $100. I already have a K&N filter so I have to check what I need. Does the lid come with the straight tube to hook it up.
