Re: help with 96 gt
Yah the PI swap is probably the most common bang for the buck mod for the 96-98's. Takes some mechanical know-how and some patience to install but as said will bring you up to 99-04 4.6L specs.
Exhaust is really a personal preference. Flowmasters are known to rust out sooner than others, but that doesn't bother some. Borla and Magnaflow sound real good on the 2v's. I think SLP's belong on GM cars only, but there are some using loudmouths on GT's and Mach 1's...as said, it's a personal preference.
You could look into some udp's, a CAI, and a new plenum, but bolt ons tend to show minimal gains, especially compared to the PI swap.
