Tax time dilemma

So im having a tough time deciding what i wanna spend my taxes on. On one hand i could buy a 4.6 Liter engine for around 1300 and have it in the garage and work on it on my days off. On the other, i could finally get my exhaust work done and done right. with that being said, i know i want Longtubes, and flowmaster american thunder mufflers. however im wondering what i would do for a mid pipe. im very open to suggestions cause im at a loss right now. Thanks!

good choice !! im planning on doing the same setup but using flow 40's and slp tips. cjponyparts.com has a cariety of h pipes for either stock or shorty headers, or for use with long tube headers. so u can check that out. also check out ebay, they might have what ur looking for .

well i ordered my lip and sum new wheels and tires already from AM, got some tint, going to buy a badass alarm on monday, need to fix my tie rods, then whatever i have left ill buy my exhaust. im probably just going to buy the flows first and have em installed then ill move on to the mac lt headers and the h pipe.

Re: Tax time dilemma

Cant beat that, staggered is always a nice choice. Just try not to skin the tires a week after you get them
