Parts...need your help guys...

OK, i have...lets say some money to spend, but this money i also have to last on my payments until summer. I want exhaust like you wouldn't believe, this site has Borla Catback Exhaust 2.5"tubing with 4" tips AND Magnaflow or Bassani-your choosing- X-Pipe with Hi-FLO cats for $850 compelety stainless steel, but with handling fees and shipping $913. Which is like on the border, i get that..then i can't get anything until summer. On the otherend, I would get an Accufab Throttlebody and Plenum, compelety polished for $415, and with it tint the windows, which is idk, i'll say $150 to $200. So, if i get the second option, i won't really be tight on money as much as i would if i got the exhaust, but i really want that exhaust and i think its a deal, but i would be kinda tight on money, but i would survive though. So what would you guys do...Exhaust and nothing else until summer, or Second option with a little more leway. Here the picts. of the parts

I got my pro-chamber for $230. I would get an off road system. (cheaper & just put the stocker back on when you have to pass smog) I would also get some gears. 3:73's took off 5 tenths my E.T. Dont buy a catback exaust, buy just the mufflers. You can get your whole xaust without headers for $400. Gears $200 plus $200 install. Then start working on the t.body/plenium & don't forget about some good tuning.

the plentum adds an impressive 10-15 hp (I guess depending on year and TB) across the intire board

That plenum stuff works, but is overpriced.
The stocker can be hand ported and a bigger
TB fitted. BTW, It's really an Inlet Elbow,
(part of the plenum) the rest of the plenum is
under that.

Or get your TB bored and a bigger plate put in,
that is like only $80

I've done that to V6's and made huge gains.
1/2 shafting too, works wonders!

We )me and my DIY'ers) have actually shown
near 50% increases by doing these things, in
TB flow alone. By the number calculations,
35% increases are the norm.

#3 gears then half of #1 (the h or x pipe.) Don't buy a catback. It is the biggest waist of money. Just get the mufflers. Then go to step #2

Basically step #3 (gears) will give you better times then step #1 & #2 combined.

exhaust or gears IMO

plenum gains MAYBE half MPH in the 1/4... without other intake/exhaust mods you'll barely notice it

haven't been on the site for like a week, but i bought the exhaust. Got the Borla stuff last thurs. and the x-pipe is on backorder for about another week. So, next will prolly be either gears, tinted windows, or lowered. Im really leaning to the gears, so would you guys recommend 3.73's or 4.10's for gears?
