Birthday = car money!

Turned 18 today and got a fair amount added to my car fund. Ordered a Mach 1 grill delete and probably going to order a bassani o/r x pipe tomorrow. Other than that I may need suggestions. Probably $300 ish

Get a tuner. Best mod and one of the most simple and definitely the easiest to install LOL. Not only does it give you a few hp all by itself but it will make you get more hp out of every other mod you add down the line. Plus you can read the obd II codes.

Tuner and CAI would be a great start. Then you could gears, headers, driveshaft etc.

Already have CAI as well. And I would go 4.10s, but I don't think I'll have enough for labor and I've heard it's a heck of a job to do on your own.

I don't think you need them unless you got longtubes.

If you're in there then why not? My bearing races were pretty trashed when I did my gears at 60K.

You need the rear end bearing kit. You don't want to use old bearings and seals with brand new gears. And it's cheap insurance so why not
