What Mods... need ideas

I was going to purchase a couple things soon but there isnt really anything i want for my car~ any ideas? mod list is in my sig and I dont want or need any more power so it would need to be something else.

The only real thought I have had is a set of gauges~ (aeroforce to monitor a few params I want to keep track of).

Thanks for ideas

Do you like the headlight/taillight tint look? I think it adds a nice touch to some. Or window tint? The only other thing I would say is a kenne bell. Lol.

Re: What Mods... need ideas

ive thought about tint for headlights/taillights but I personally like the look they have now on the redfire color... I do need a new OEM headlight.. (pealing) but thats not a look change just a fix.

I would tint my windows, but they are always rolled down when I am driving (well 90% of the time or more).

keep em coming

Re: What Mods... need ideas

yea, I thought about the aeroforce gauges to monitor and warn me if my maf counts get to high, my injectors get close to max, or my inlet temps get to hot~ etc I may go that route.

Re: What Mods... need ideas

These are pretty nice gauges (expensive though) they will give you a warning beep too if things get into the wrong area...

You said you need to replace the headlamps. I would upgrade to the clear corner headlamps. It's small change but looks really good.

Another nice upgrade would be to convert the headlights and fog lights to HID. Makes a huge difference at night. Just ask Brent.

Re: What Mods... need ideas

already have a CAI, ive thought about gauges and I want the aeroforce interceptor so i can keep an eye on a few params that normally are not measured by gauges.

Re: What Mods... need ideas

Alot good ideas here. I would do the tinted headlamps,they are not to dark and look really good.HIDs in the headlamps and fogs also looks really good.+1 on the gauges.How bout something small like changing the pony up front to a cobra emblem?

It's seems like your leaning towards some gauges, just go for those then. I agree with the headlight and/or taillight tint, it looks really well, considering it's not really dark, but it has to be apart of your theme.

Brandon, dual intereceptors with speed of sound a pillar mount.

Come up with something custom and he'll make it for ya...if not I'll show up at his shop and make him do it. I've thrown some crazy ideas out to him in the past and he's always up for them.

I'm in the same boat as you...I want more information but don't want to hack up the interior to do it.

Re: What Mods... need ideas

Gauges are always a good idea. I just put some Eqqus oil, water, volts in mine. It's always a good idea to keep an eye on things. Cheap insurance I say.

check these gauges out PLX Devices Inc. - Multi Gauges, Single Gauges, Sensor Modules, Wideband Air Fuel Ratio, Data Logging, Fuel Saving / Scan Tools

the pony up front looks far better than the snake in 03/04... it simply doesnt fit on 03/04 cobras and looks way small, thats why I never put it on mine.

That and everyone accuses you of taking the snake out. I enjoy informing people they came with a pony...not a snake.
