You need long tubes or mid lengths to see any gains. I thought about some shorties (only thing legal in ca) but not worth spending 5-600 for only 5 -10 hp

m/m sub frame connectors
bama livewire ts tuner
100 shot of nitrous
CAI

What should I do next? This all keeps me in the STX class (minus the nitrous but that is only for a day and the street)
ALlright, So....
Dont bother with GT swaybars- the front is maybe 1mm bigger. Just get a rear one from a GT/mach1/bullitt.
CAI is also worthless- you get the same effect from removing the silencer and adding a K&N.
Skip the 13" brakes- They make adaptors now for a 14" brake setup with more bite. Cheaper too- uses 11+ brake calipers/brackets/pads, Boss/GT500 rotors and an adaptor piece.

The 13's barely clear the stock 17" rims, will the 11+ brakes clear stock 17" rims?

Edit: Also, it is still pretty expensive. The adaptor kits I have found for the front is almost 400 bucks, and doesn't include the brakes. I am interested in this if I can find it cheaper. I can sell my 13" rotors and such to help finance.

You will need 18's.

The adaptors are at- http://www.fullytorquedracing.com/mu...brake-kit.html

I got the calipers/brackets/pads for 125. Rotors are 45/ea, and the adaptors are 175. So call it 300 for evrything.

way cheaper than the kits I found for sure, but if you don't have 18" rims, then a little more expensive. Since I don't have (nor do I want) 18"s, then I am gonna stick with the current brakes I have. Still that is a great way to upgrade if you have the rims to fit em!
