    Which mod next?

    Springtime I'll be dropping up to $1500 in my TA. What should I go for? It's a daily driver, like suspension mods as mch as power mods. Any suggestions for that kinda $$$ I was thinking bigger cam, then I thought about a nice brake/rotor upgrade. Throw as many diff. ideas at me as you can for a $1500 budget which includes install prices, I'm a dumbass who can't install anything without getting hurt. TIA, current mods in sig, also LS6 intake sitting in garage awaiting install.

    Port & polish the MAF housing and the throttle body (you can do these yourself with little cost), get a smooth bellow, and install that LS6 intake. Install an underdrive pulley/harmonic balancer (and the required new belts). Then buy tuning software (I like HPTuners) and give that thing an awesome custom tune. You'll still have about $500 left over for plenty of gas, since you'll be wanting to drive it so much more (not to mention the higher gas prices).

    cam kit, install and tuning = about 1500.
    thats my answer.
    suspension mods have always been last for me.
    i hook pretty damm well with my power level and stock suspension.
    with a 3 second burnout, i hook at the track no problem.

    Sarge---can't list all my mods in sig. I have BMR LCA, PHR, and SFC already, along with Bilstein HD shocks and a 1LE FSB. Torque arm crossed my mind as an option, any other Suspension mods I am missing. Shocks, SFC, & LCA made a HUGE diff.

    if you have long tube headers do not use the eibach pro-kit. I did with my long tubes and they were about 1 1/2 inch off the ground and hit everything.

    Def. not lowering the car, I like the way it sits now. I did the free hose mod in the rear to lower that by 1 1/4 inches, I like the way it sits now. With the LT's though lowering isn't an option for me

    There are a lot of Long Tube headers that fit just fine with the Pro Kit.

    Some of them are terrible for clearance, like the SLPs.
