Sure mods include 4:10 rear end gear, throttle body spacer, cold air intake and some axle back exhaust

Re: Mod

If you can legally install long tube headers where you live, go for it. Shorty headers on these cars don't make enough power to justify their price tag. I saw a set of BBK headers make just 3 HP on a Dynocom Dyno. $499= 3HP..... no good. The car was 2006 GT, otherwise stone stock.

Oh- throttle body spacers are a joke. Made absolutely NO difference on the dyno.

I think that finding a tuner with a chassis dyno in your area that supports SCT equipment would be the best investment. He could maximize the output of the mods you have already made.

Alright thanks for the help, actually for $75 dollars I felt a little horsepower gain but mainly I gained 2 mph so the throttle body spacer was worth it

take off your throttle body and look inside your intake manifold,then you will know why the spacer is a joke.

Plus 1....any gain you think you got is strictly in your head. 2 mph,please. Where did you gain that. In the 1/4 mile,top speed,where exactly

Re: Mod

CAI, Tuner, and Exhaust I think would do you good for a starter.
