Welcome to the forum. Congrats on the new ride. Watch out for that mod bug, he has a nasty bite and there is no anti-venom (other than an empty wallet)

Welcome. Gears and a tuner will give you that acceleration. Check out american muscle.

GT24,

If you definitely want to get your feet wet and put something on yourself, then I would recommend the Steeda CAI/Tune. Very good upgrade in regards to power gain and it is something you can install yourself with the proper tools.

Defenitely other mods out there as well, depends on what your price range is and what yoru plans are.

Best Regards,

TJ

4.10 gears,

This to adjust for the 4.10s (and add some power)

and wider stickier tires.

It'll feel like a different car, for a relatively minimal investment.
