Hey everyone. I recently purchased a 2003 GT about a month ago, and I couldn't be any happier! Although I've been looking a lot on AM at performance parts. Any suggestions of what I should get?

Yes it's completely stock. Last week I ordered:

-sequential tail light kit
-Mach 1 delete grill
-White reverse glow gauges
-White cue ball shifter

Now I want to do some engine/exhaust work. I was looking at the SLP loudmouth CatBack or American Flowmasters. Any suggestions? Should I get a BBK cold air?

My buddy had a BBK CAI on his 04 and he liked it. I had one on my 95 and it was OK.... Was not overly impressed but it fit and worked.

For a PI GT:

-Full length subframes
-Gears
-Shifter
-Mid Pipe and Catback
-93 octane tune
-Pullies
-CAI
-Suspension/wheels/tires/cosmetics, get rid of that stock 4x4 stance

I'd also grab a Mach 1 chin spoiler while you are at the cheap/easy cosmetic stuff. It really does make the front end look a million times better as does the Mach grille delete you already got.

As for exhaust to get... youtube and listen to as many combos as you can. Don't need headers on the modular, the stock manifolds flow fine.

I went the extra mile on a cai. Because I don't plan on FI or anything so I wanted something really good and looked nice because I will have it for a while.. It was around 200$ but they will all do the same thing.. And I saved the $ on springs by cutting them..

Exactly what I was looking at. Already have a tuner, love the sound of the SLP lm1! About to purchase the MGW short shifter, have the Mach 1 grille delete coming in today and will purchase the chin spoiler this week. Everything else I will get here shortly, can't wait.

That's what I'm probably gonna do. I've watched a ton of YouTube videos of people who have it. Sounds amazing

Yeah I can see where you're coming from. I kinda like the Flowmasters cause they are loud enough but not to the point where it's too much.
