No doubt. It's possible that you could be in financial ruins by then, much like the rest of us. How fast you wanna go depends on how much you have to spend. That and whether or not emissions are enforced where you live haha. If you don't wanna go nuts, I'd suggest an offroad H pipe, CAI, axel backs, and a tuner.

I'd go JLT 3 with tuner, 410 gears and keep your factory mid pipe on and remove the mufflers (best sounding exhaust) I put and off road x pipe on my car and didn't pick up any time in the 1/4 and now I have to worry about emissions

Maybe 5-7hp but it didn't really show in the 1/4 mile like a tune and gears

No, I only have gears intake tune and exhaust, so I really don't care to spend the money on a dyno pull, maybe this summer when they have local shops do open houses and dyno em for free

I would do tune, CAI, axle backs, gears, and a one piece driveshaft.

And long tube headers and offroad midpipe if you have the money

Just curious, why would you do one piece driveshaft before doing longtube headers?

The driveshaft picks up just about the same time in the 1/4 and it's a nice mod for drivability and cost. The headers cost about the same plus a tune then plus the headaches of emissions

An the headers are a ***** to install

Exactly what I was going to say. Lol

And also depending on what headers you go with and if they are new the cost will be 3-400 dollars if not a little more on average

But you'll need a new mid pipe and if you need cats, your at 700-1200 easy then if you pay for an install that's another 300-600

Ya that's why I was saying on average. Depending on how you go about it with the install and all that. So the driveshaft is definitely a better choice for the money

Makes sense,
But the drive shaft doesn't sound as good.

When did you cut them off? Did you run straight pipe back? Any help in the 1/4?

When I first bought the car, ran a 13.2 with them off then got a off road Xpipe and mufflers ran 13.3s with a best of 13.1

I think your short throw shifter was a great first choice. I'd do mufflers second, but right after that I'd do suspension - shocks and struts/lowering springs & control arms and stiffen the chassis. This is probably a slightly different perspective from most who would add a CAI/tune early. I felt like my GT came with decent power, but a lot was unusable because of the stock chassis/suspension. I'm just now adding 4.1 gears, and then I may add a centrifical SC when the budget allows.
