    On the right track?

    Here is my mod list up to date. Just wanted to see what you guys think and if I'm on the right track.

    SLP Lid
    K&N filter
    SLP smooth bellows
    SLP MAF
    Cutout
    Trufiber WS6 hood
    17 inch rims and tires
    miscellaneous appearance mods

    I'm thinking I need headers and a Y pipe next or gonna lower it next. Lowered f body's look sick.

    I would've personally stayed away from that SLP MAF but other than that it looks fine. It's your car and your goals so there really is no wrong way to do it. I would do headers before lowering but I'd rather go fast than look fast.

    I have most of those but the smooth bellows is just an appearance mod btw. Stick with the stock maf and keep it clean from the filter oil

    Headers would be a good idea as well

    I actually like the smooth bellows and found some gains with it. That accordian like factory piece does nothing at all for air flow. My only complaint would be fitment and the fact that it doesn't allow the lid much movement at all,,,but a worthy addition.

    But sounds like you have the intake side taken care of. I'm with Orion,,,I would go for headers. I don't care for the lowered look so I prefer to spend my money on go fast parts.
    Probably a good time to start looking at a tune as well. Especially if an automatic. Another good addition to an auto would be a nice stall converter.

    With that aftermarket MAF I would start looking at tuning options though, hard to say where that AFR is. And those aftermarket MAF's take a little more time and effort to dial in. To a point where a tuner may just tell you to stick the stocker back on to simplify things.

    What are your goals for the car? Looks like you're doing good so far, I agree with everyone else tho.... I would've left the stock MAF alone. What are you looking to have?? looks or go fast or both?
