Ehh IMO just minor bolt ons gears....no real need for serious suspension components (unless u race often). My car blower and all just has springs shocks/ struts cobra IRS nothing serious.

So does the cai and tune make a noticable difference? Doing the same to my 08 GT this weekend.

Same question for me...I've been putting this off since I got my car a few months ago...wondering if I should lower it with adjustable LCAs and new panhard bar, or buy the tune and cai combo from AM...both will cost around the same.

CAI and tuner first. It makes a big difference. Doesn't seem to bog at times like stock, better throttle response, some HP and the tuner helps with everything from mods to CEL diagnosis and clearing CELs.

Yeah definitely recommend a tune an cai. Basically only power mods I have done to my car and imo, makes a big difference. Easiest way to increase performance and you can do it yourself. Plus you can play with the tunes and octane to see what you prefer.

I definitely won't be playing with the tunes. I don't know enough about engine management to even begin dealing with those shenanigans. Whatever Bama sends me will be fine.

Well you will have to pick the three tunes you want. Based on octane(87,93, etc) and also whether you want a street, performance, or race tune. But you really don't have to know anything about it, AM(Bama) does all the work for you and you just plug in the tuner and flash your tune. I recommend the Hybrid tune. I run 87 octane but any of the higher ones will be great.

Right, I understand that...I thought you meant play around with the tunes like changing the timing or spark curve, idle speed...**** like that.

Just test drove my GT after installing the cai and the performance tune. All I can say is WOW, wasn't sure how big a difference it was going to make but before it seemed like you had to wait until around 3000 rpms to feel the power kick in, now the throttle response is a heck of a lot better. If you haven't done this I would highly recommend it. Easy to do in under a hour and you WILL notice the difference.

If you don't already have gears, its a no brainer, do gears. You can be making substantially more power for straight line racing than another guy with a higher ratio gear and you'll lose in a straight line race.
