Re: Mods

Gears, Nitrious Oxide, Cams. As far as the chip I recommend taking it, and getting a custom tune at a dyno shop, I need to do this but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I purchased a SCT Tuner though.

Re: Mods

not much for under 1k.

Gears are probably the best bang for your buck, around 250 for gears+master rebuild kit, and probably 350 for a install. with the other 300, you can find a used Xcal2 or Diablo handheld, you can install their tune, recalibrate the speedo to the new rear end, and play with their tune a bit if you know how to tune, and unlock a few more ponies.

Or for around 500-600 get an xcal2 and a dyno tune somewhere to maximize power if you aren't comfortable adjusting your tune. You will def need something to change the speedo if you change gears, however, if you have a 5 speed, you can use a dallas speedcal to adjust it.
