My thoughts on 2v modding
Just bored and thought I'd share. After a few years of owning a 03 gt and other sources of info I've came to some conclusions on modding. As we all know modding gets expensive and our main goal is to make the most power for as little as possible. (At least if your like me and doesn't have all the money in the world, if you do ignore this post). Ok so here goes.
For basic bolt ons there's a few good mods I would recommend
Gears: great mod for the money 3.73s or 4.10s just do the research.
Tune: a lot of options here as there are many handheld tuners, chips, dyno shops to choose from. A good tune will help wake your 2v up, especially if you have other mods affecting air flow and such.
Tires: No traction=getting nowhere a fast. So good tires gets you along way. I like 275s in the rear for daily driving.
Springs: since we're talking about handling, a good set of springs are a cheap way to take those turns faster with less body roll and better traction. Not to mention better looks. don't forget those cc plates and an alignment tho.
Cat backs: just get whatever sounds good to you. Not really any gains but our cars sound too good not to be heard.
Mid pipe you will see some decent gains if you go catless. For the price of a good o/r pipe you can't go wrong. Mostly sound preference here, do your research. The x pipe may yield a little more top end power
Headers: if you just had a good paycheck and looking for a little more hp and have a weekend free (trust me you'll need it) long tubes are a good choice. Stock manifolds do a decent job but there are gains to be had here especially along with a tune.
Under drive pulleys: not really sure. I've heard mixed reviews, but make sure u go with steeda or a brand that is not piggyback style. I think if you could get a good deal on some they would be worth trying.
Intake: I would start by at least putting a knn filter for better airflow.
This is just me but I would get a good plenum before I would buy a cai or a tb.
MORE AIR IN/OUT is key, which is why the rich guys do heads and cam and kenne bell and such. So essentially any intake part that adds to airflow should be beneficial.
This short list is basically what I think is the most hp or sotp for the dollar spent. And that's what it's all about. What do yall think about my little modding rant?
