Yeah man, this is a big jump - respect the car. Honestly, like i've said to so many people because it almost happened to me... respect the power, before you really do anything to it - just drive it and get a feel for it... I would save the money and kinda do everything at once... intake/exhaust/pulley/tune... this way you only need a tune once and it's a good tune... if you swap this and that - while you won't need a tune - the car won't be running at 100% max...


but dude your dad did a great thing for you... just enjoy the car for a little while - get the seat time... let the novelty die down... because while the true novelty will never die with the car, the initial one will...

That's my advice.


But for afterwards, I was always partial to the O/R Hpipe.. I loved my Mac H and Flow catback on my Terminator - sounded awesome.

I got my diablo sport tuner today for 200 bucks. Since my car is bone stock, the gain wasnt enormous to any extent. However, for spending 10 mins in a parking lot, the gain was awesome! I could definitally feel at least a 20 rwhp increase. Im very happy. I ordered my short shifter form MGW this morning, and i believe my next mod might just be a harness bar and a pully.

Where did you get the tune? I would again get the pulley, intake, exhaust all at once then bring it to be tuned with all the gear on it. you'll have a better tune.

and once you do that pulley swap - make sure you get your cooling mods in order, or else you might be sorry...
