Alright so here's my list of the mods I have on my mod list. Any suggestions on what order I should get them in? After I get all my paychecks for the month and set aside some money to save and some money for payments it leaves me at about one upgrade/mod per month.

Engine/Performance:

-MAC Prochamber o/r h pipe
-MGW shifter
-SCT tune
-Lowering Springs
-Possibly a CAI ( although I've heard they are just under the hood decoration )

Appearance:

-Cervini 2.5" cowl hood
-Saleen rear spoiler/bumper
-New chin spoiler (not sure which one yet)
-New headlights (with HID's)

-Shifter
-GEARS
-Catback/Midpipe
-Get rid of the 4x4 stance

Then go from there on appearance mods. Mach 1 spoiler is a nice cheap upgrade but not sure I'd spend the money on a rear bumper when the stock one looks great with some nice fat 3.5" polished exhaust tips filling the arches in. Your car though. New headlights are always a good idea if yours are in rough shape. Also be aware that after paint your hood is going to be at least $1k total, if you do get a rear bumper that isn't going to be cheap either. Getting stuff painted sucks as far as $$$ wise...

The only reason I put rear bumper is because I might have found a guy who is parting out his saleen and he has the rear bumper, but yeah painting parts can get pretty expensive. My headlights are pretty fogged up also.. But they're only $130 to fix so no big deal. I saw you didn't list the tune?

Are you gonna be running your car at High Plains with us next month? If you are then I'd recommend the MGW or lowering springs. If not then I would say do the Prochamber or the tune.

September 29th. If you're running your car, the stock shifter is not a good idea for trying to change gears in the middle of a turn.

I bet. I think I've decided on the MGW being my next purchase. Hopefully it makes a difference

There are 3 types. First time hearing that. What was your choice.

Yeah, the super long wait is mainly for the MT-82 transmissions in the '11 & ^ models.

You must haven't been on the site long I get called a MGW fanboy on the daily George and the crew over at MGW are just hard working Americans that produce a superior product and hold quality and customer service over quantity and profit. That is 100% American made and family owned. Just don't get any better than that IMHO

They are amazing shifters, that's for sure. I've driven a lot of different short shifters but I highly think the MGW is the best out there. I've been on this site for about 3 months BTW.. Lol.
