SR Performance Blackout Cold Air Intake 41093 (94-98 V6) - Free Shipping

CAI, tuner, exhaust. That's the best 3 I can think of to start with.

I wouldn't keep the single exhaust IMO. Especially don't just replace the muffler, tried that and it sounded the same. Get an h pipe or x pipe or just take it to a shop and get divorced duals. Bring two mufflers of your choice too, they mark up the stuff a ton

Go to American muscles site and look at the ones for your car. Then listen to what they sound like on YouTube and pick the one that suits you.

8.8 Gt rear end is the first recommended mod via ME articles. It depends on your money and mech. experience.

If you've got a single exhaust, I know that the SLP loudmouth 1 sounds pretty good. I haven't heard the slightly-more-expensive loudmouth 2, however. Might ask one of these guys about it. My stang came with an x-pipe from the last owner, so I'm throwing the super 44s from flowmaster on it soon. They sound amazing.

Honestly, I went the cheap route and jumped on eBay. I bought an RTUNES CAI, and it is a damn good one. Perfect fit, comes in red rubber with black pipes or chrome pipes with blue rubber. $70. The workmanship on it is high quality and it has a nice hiss to it. I can link you to one of you want to check them out. Highly recommended!

I'm actually making an interior painting guide on the Appearance thread if you're into that. A freshly painted interior makes an older car look brand new. I'm making the guide as I paint mine. Here's what I'm going for (but not exactly what I'm doing)

If new cars came with Plastidip, I'd tear it right off before the car even left the dealership lot, or, resort to restoring an older car w/o plastidip.

Don't be a hater. Plasti is very flexible and has it's place. It looks decent and is cheap. No it doesn't look like 500$ rims paint wise, but it's 8$. Lol

Yeah yeah I know plastidip isn't all that bad, and yes it's cool bc you can try things and just tear it off if you don't like it but I still hate it, haha.

You just gave me all of the reasons that plasti dip is awesome, but no reasons why you hate it! Lol haha

I'm cheap-o-phobic when it comes to these nice cars. I like to only give my $25k+ investment the best, so if I have to paint a spoiler and can go either $10 in plastidip or $250 for a durable, high-gloss professional paint job, I'm choosing the latter.

Good point! I completely agree with you on that.

Just depends on what shape the car is in. Yeah typically on a 10+ year old car the paint is gonna be poop and plastidip may be even an improvement. On new vehicles however, why cover up a beautiful paint job? That's essentially what I believe and is just my opinion.

Yeah, mine is a 2000 and the paint on it is impeccable minus the body work I have had to do on one of the fenders. It sits outside, but I get it washed and waxed once or twice a month. I threw plastidip on it because I wanted to experiment a bit before I go high dollar on it, plus the entire car is Performance Red from top to bottom, so seeing the same color constantly starts bothering me.

I agree. I wouldn't put plasti dip on a brand new car. If I could afford a brand new car then I can afford a good paint job. Older cars are budget cars, an plasti dip is budget paint. You just also benefit from it being so flexible.

That's not my actual interior, but it will be soon. Check the appearance/paint threads over in the wrenching forums. I'm slowly putting together a how-to guide.
