SR 70MM throttle body and SR upper intake plenum

I'm thinking if getting the throttle body first then the intake. Any suggestions on what to get first or instead?

plenum first. throttle body, i hear most say that you wont notice anything. i didnt notice a difference going from 75mm to stock. but th plenum is the chokehold at high rpm. tb is best for boosted. what do you mean by intake? intake is from the filter to the manifold.

yea wouldnt bother with the tb unless boosting, then youl need it. i dont know for sure how noticeable the new plenum would be, but at higher rpm, it should allow the full amount of air into the engine without much restriction, if any at all.

Skip the SR as well, get the Trick Flow setup. $279 for the plenum and the 75mm TB on Summit or Jegs. Proven numbers, USA made vs Chinese sweat shop children, and quality is dead on.

No, 75mm is the one you want regardless. CAI isn't doing anything for you. Exhaust will a little but the factory mid pipe needs to go if you want anything appreciable as far as gains.

Pretty much you want:

-4.10 Gears
-Shifter
-Midpipe/Catback
-MPT Tune
-Suspenson Suspension Suspension

Anything else before a power adder or engine work is just wasting money or ricing your car.

I see you always tell people to do their suspension, which do you recommend?

Basic setup for beginners.

-Max Motorsports CC plates
-SR springs
-Tokico Illumina Shocks/struts
-Steeda Lower Control arms
-Leave the stock Upper Control arms alone
-Steeda or Spintech (ground clearance) subframes

That'll get you launching decently but until you do a full rear suspension overhaul as in a torque arm/panhard bar setup for the solid axle or swap in a IRS with the Full Tilt Boogie Racing bushing kit it won't be really correct.

Is the suspension in that order, does it matter what I get first? And I'll look into the trick flow I've been seeing that a lot

Subframes and lower control arms first. Then you do springs/shocks/struts/cc plates all at once. Then drive gingerly to an alignment shop and get a good alignment and you are good. If you are going lower than 1.5" get a bumpsteer kit too. I don't see the need to go lower than that personally, not for street driving.

After that I'd look into a good set of wheels and tires. When I say good set I don't mean Sumis. Continental for all seasons, BFG for a good budget summer tire or Mickey Thompson Street Comps for a bit pricier/best summer tire.
