Next mod

Throttle body and plenum $233
4.10 gear kit $217
Only reason I'm second guessing gears is the install price I need to find out how much it's inns cost me.

The gears are going to be around $450 to $500 installed. You're going to get more benefit from the gears.

Get gears. I have throttle body and plenum. You get better throttle response at most. Gears are best bang for your buck

Gears cost a lot depending on where in the country you live. From what I've read on here, people on the west usually have to pay a whole lot more. And people on the east coast can get it done wayy cheaper

Check out the beginners guide to Bolt-on performance in the stickies section.

OP I would probably do gears

Gear installs can be anywhere from 100-600 dollars
Depends who you know

Gears will be a more noticeable

But plenum & 70mm would be a good gain too

I noticed both

I might just get the gets and not get them installed right away. I git a place that can do it but it's $450 so I'll have to wait to get them in

Accufab is the most expensive one. The Trick Flow plenum flows just about as well for way less money.

No.

For a plenum get the TF or Accufab. Accufab flows the best but most ppl will not miss anything with the TF and its much less expensive. For a TB, get a Dragon 75mm.

I'm buying from AM, and the cheapest they got is the SR I'm planning on getting 75 or 78 for future boost plans, but I will be getting gears before tb/plenum.
