Re: First car need help
Yah sounds like you have a good start...exhaust, CAI, and a t/b are some of the basic bolt ons...the throttle body probably won't do much on a near stock car but who cares since you didn't pay for it, lol.
Gears, a tlok, an underdrive pulley, and a good tune will wake up your v6. If you have an auto than the tune will really help out as the stock auto's shift points are not performance oriented. If you have a manual get a short throw shifter...it'll make driving the car more fun and shifting a breeze.
Keep in mind a quick car isn't only made by improving engine performance. Suspension and chassis stiffening will help get the power to the ground and keep the car planted.
If you want to take performance to the next level you can build the v6, or go forced induction or both.
It all depends on what you want. A lot of people end up upgrading to a v8 before dumping a ton of money into the v6's.
