    Current Mods are:
    Granatelli 350200 Cold Air Intake Lid
    Cut out the bottom of my air box, K and N filter
    Taylor 8mm wires
    cooling bypass line on my TB

    I am about to polish the TB and cut back the EGR.

    My question is, is the cost vs. power gain worth it? It will cost me around $900 for this system. Should I invest in another direction? Is there a better system with less cost? I really like the tuned sound that comes from these systems and my wife drives the car on nice days and I want the option of being able to quiet it down with the block off plates.

    Please advise...

    for a little more, you can get the bassani tru-duals and pick up more power and have way less interior drone. i used to have the adjustable 3" borla on the wife's car. with headers and no cats, it got way too loud inside the car. swapped to the bassani tru-duals and picked up 15 rwhp and cut the interior noise almost in half.

    you can get the bassani for $949.00 in T439 stainless steel, or $779.00 in aluminized from here:

    here's the dyno sheet comparing the two. this was on stock tune as well.

    I would suggest buying some longtubes with that $900. Your car will have some much needed oomph to it. However, you will need an exhaust after that, so I guess either get the exhaust now or the headers. Either way you will need both, they are much needed mods and the best bang for your buck!
