Well, I start working around the end of March, and would like to have an idea of what I would be able to get for my car this summer. I have a few ideas of what I want, but don't know if I have everything in mind that I would need for these. So...
First choice is nitrous
. I could find a used kit on ebay/craigslist, but idk if used nitrous kits are something to stay away from. I know I need a window switch, remote bottle opener, bottle heater, different spark plugs, and a tune. Anything I am missing? And I think I could do this for ~$1000. Am I correct in thinking that?
Second choice is gears/tlok Pretty sure I'm gonna go with 4.10's. Now my question here is would it be better to buy the gears, tlok, and rebuild kit (hitting 100k miles soon) or go with an 8.8 rearend and gears? I think that it would be a little more expensive to go with the 8.8 and gears, but is it worth it? Also thinking I could do this for around $1000 including install.
Third choice is lowering the car. I have 19's on though, so I'm not sure how much I could lower it before the tires start rubbing. I think I read somewhere that I could get it rolled some so I could lower it more? I want the H&R super sport springs, which lower it 1.7 front and 1.9 rear. Is that still possible? And is there anything else I would need with the lowering springs? I imagine I could do this for maybe $750? But not sure
Last choice is just a few cosmetic mods. Halo's, gt grill with fog lights, 8 inch antenna, and a third brake light cover. Possibly the smoked LED tail lights from AM. Still not sure yet though. I think i could do this by myself, so no installation costs. I added it all up on AM and can get everything for just under $600. The cheaper price for so many things is somewhat appealing...but idk.
Just wanted other people's thoughts before I decide and start saving. Thanks in advance!
