    Well... It sounds like the guy you talked to was an idiot. Your trans isnt going to blow. Your rear end on the other hand is the weak spot in your driveline, although being an automatic you should be fine for a little while.
    Since you just purchased the car i would start with a complete tune-up to include, plugs, wires, all fluids and filters, clean the maf and throttle body.
    Throw that K&N filter in the trash and pick up a paper filter, does the same job but you dont have to worry about oil fouling up your Maf.
    Whats your budget and ultimate goals look like?
    Most people start with Intake and Exhaust and then do a little suspensioin Ie subframe connectors.
    Welcome to the party bud.

    We need to know your intentions for the car and what budget you have. There are a ton of parts, so it depends on what you want out of your car.

    Also, is your WS6 stock right now?

    Basic improvements are subframes connectors, exhaust and a different intake. Probably run you around $800 right there.

    well, I started with handling on my 2002 WS6, doped in some UMI lower control arms and panard bar in the back. Made a wold of difference with road manners. the Back end doesn't feel as floppy and skittish as with the factory stuff over cracks in the road.

    Sub frame connectors are the next on the list to get rid of the body flex. An air lid is a good choice too, cheap and easy to install. I just put an SLP on mine a couple of weeks ago. Throttle is defiantly crisper, how ever I don;t have time right now to take it to the track and see how my times are.

    As for the mentioning the SLP loud mouth exhaust, volume does not equate to power. Loud is for red necks and kids, tone is for adults and those who don't want to be cop magnets.

    Magnaflow is one the better flowing cat back out there as far as I know. My car came with flowmaster muffler and 3inch cat back. On a good hook i can get 13.9-14.0.
