I put hi flow's on mine contrary to any small HP gain because I couldn't **** off everyone, including the neighbors, like the kids who run up and down the street at all hours of the night do without them. Besides, it's hard to think straight with all that noise.

Catless midpipe really makes these cars that much louder? There are still two more cats upstream right? Or are the ones in the midpipe the only ones?

Best bang for the buck equal gears and sticky tires. It amazes me how no body ever mentions tires. They are the most important part of any car. Kind of a rubber meets the road kinda thing???

This man does speak the truth! Ever since I started running better quality tire, all my vehicles received them, (Nittos on the mustang, Toyos on the SRT8, and BFG's on the truck) when the time came.

gears, tuner, sub frame connectors, and a short throw shifter makes the car MUCH more fun. If you want serious gains, start building your supercharger kit.

Can't speak for everyone, but mine only has two. And to me it's obnoxiously loud. It resonates at certain RPM's and makes it sound like a NASCAR.

save your money for a vortech supercharger... your best bet youll spend 3500 on mods/installation when you can spend 6 and get a supercharger and dyno tune and come out with 100+ hp
