Without knowing your budget or financial situation, my personal bias is to use cash money to upgrade what I have, and OWN IT, rather than finance a newer vehicle.

I thought about trading my...

First I've seen of it. It's sexy. Not quite as sexy as JPC, but on par with FRPP, and 100x better than C&L. Given it's design, I'd guess it's performance would be between the JPC and FRPP intakes....

I'll try to actually answer the question you asked. If I had to start over:

I would do suspension first, followed closely by a 1pc driveshaft and short throw shifter.

Don't get me wrong, all...

TMI could get pretty close to what you want for significantly less $$.

That's the direction I went.

I've not seen a lot of stellar reviews from those who have made the swap to E85 on either the 4.6 or 5.0 motors. The cost is high, the tuning is tricky, and the benefits are not all that great.

Comp 127200 (XFI NSR stage II) if you aren't into replacing valve springs. Smooth idle and big top end gains. You would have to know you were listening to a cammed engine to tell the difference. ...

Ran JBA shorties with FRPP cut-and-splice x-pipe and corsa sports. I really liked the sound. The x really smooths out the tone. At low rpm and cruising I think it was quiter than stock. At WOT it...

Hind sight being what it is, I would go ahead with CAI and tune, but I would apply the rest of the budget to suspension, short throw shifter, and 1pc driveshaft. The CAI and tune will give you the...

I think that's on the generous side. Was thinking more like 315-335whp.....and don't be surprised to lose significant torque in the daily driver rpm range.

They don't specify crank or wheel HP. I wonder how much the low end torque sacrifice is. All the goodies in that package are oriented towards high rpm HP.

Your engine bay looks pretty clean and respectable. I'd be hesitant to junk it up with that ugly, used kit....but that's junt my opinion.

Jeebus! That kit looks like it has more plumbing than my twins. Good luck. I suspect you are going to need at least a little custom fabrication and your "budget" turbo build is going to be much...

Am I seeing light under the right front of the scoop where it is supposed to meet the hood, or is it a reflection off the hood that looks like a gap? I like the aesthetic of the scoop, but not if...

Can't that be resolved [mostly] with new diff gears with a significantly less involved and less expensive installation?

If the transmission ratios are a problem, wouldn't you be more prone to...

I would like a six speed in my '07 as well, but not enough to make...

What do you consider to be a "complete" suspension upgrade? That's a pretty loaded way to ask the question. I think the ideal "complete" setup for your desired driving characteristics is an air bag...

The small turbos are limiting the top end in pretty big way. It works out pretty well, because they keep me right at the safe limit of the stock bottom end. The plan is to fortify the motor and...
