Faster off the line. If anything get exhaust if you still have stock exhaust.

Removing the catalytic convertors will definitely free up some power. Not to mention give the car a much more aggressive exhaust tone. Just keep in mind the emission laws in your area.

I would install 4.10 gears like others said and have the car custom tuned. You'll see a huge gain in acceleration, shift points, etc. The next thing I would do is subframe connectors. These SN95's tend to twist easy and even more so with Verts. Subframe connections will keep the frame straight and allow the car to plant the power better to the rear wheels!

There are 4 cats. SLP high flow cats work great and h will give you a deep sound. X is raspy

Cost me $475 to put the new american thunder catback on. 75 was labor and 400 for catback. Would've done it myself but I do not own tools that could've done the job.
