Default Which mod?

Here she is now

For a good long while left her alone, getting the new hood has given me that damn mod itch again. What would you do?

Chin spoiler to finish off the front end or GT500 rear bumper to finish the back.
And cut down that antenna.

I've been considering the cervinis type III chin spoiler. Am hesitant to go the cdc classic since it's my daily driver, and don't want to have to back in to every parking spot, front seems to always just barely clear stuff.
I really like the 6 bumper cut for duals, is just an ultra clean look.
Yeah good call on getting a shorty antenna, thats cheap tho so still can do one big option.

Somehow I completely missed the poll.... haha.
The rear window louvers would look great, IMO.

I don't know how much of a drop that kit you have has done, but I don't have any problems with my CDC Classic. My mom did pull it over a curb one day and I only had to readjust it. Its a very forgiving material.

I would say either the CS (gt500) rear bumper or the brakes. And definitely kill that antenna.

I would like to intercool, but damn is the intercooler expensive for this kit, I thought it was 1500, they have it priced at 2k. Might call and see if they can offer it lower, at that price I'm saving it for a 5.0, more rwhp stock.
And rear bumper is staying! Clean bumper w/ flowmaster tips = win
brakes are pushing the budget but would be suck a huge upgrade over stock, and not too bad compared to the big brake kits.
Need to find out what adapter I would need since I don't have abs

dem brakes

Look around for used/takeoff Brembos. I've seen them go for between $500-$900.

Alot of it depends on your application. For show, big brakes look sick. For drag racing, that intercooler will make your day. For road racing or autox, the brakes will help more. That also matters a bit if you have a centri or roots blower.

The way I look at it, you need an IC to get the most out of your SC. IMO, get the most out of the ~5k youve probably already sunk in FI by getting the best, most complete system possible. Then look at other stuff.

FWIW, ive heard bigger drilled or slotted rotors and better pads make a world of difference in braking, at a fraction of the cost of a kit.

*I see youre Xcharged. Id ask Jim, NP, and a few of the other Xmen what their opinion is. If that second gen X is coming out, an IC could be a VERY worthwhile investment.
