Re: need some tune up info

You can go with a dual exhaust setup, that'll sound better than just the single exhaust. The best place to start if you dont want to spend a bunch of money is with the bolt-ons. Look into a Cold air kit, underdrive pulley, and more exhaust work and thatll give you a few pony's. Beyond that, the next thing Id do is a new rear end gear w/ trac-lok as well as a tuner from SCT. Check out the site sponsors and browse around to see what you might be interested in.

And welcome to the site. :wave2:

Re: need some tune up info

how much are you looking to spend? I would do a ported upper and lower intake before I spent money on making it true dual. yea the bolt on's help with power but there's not just one to do that will make a huge difference. It takes all of them and by the time you spend money on them you could do some mods that will really improve power.

Duals + CAI + UD crank pulley + Custom SCT X-cal2 from VMP

That will really liven up the car.

Not really. The air is not in the intake tube long enough to absorb much heat.
I have have one of the $50 CAI's off E-bay and it works & fits fine.
