Sharing my upcoming mods, opinions?

Hey guy's as most of you know I just bought my car and now comes the fun part, mods! At the moment I am looking to get these mods done by end of month or start of next month so hopefully plans don't change.

Wanted to bump this. I updated my build list. Really hard to decide on mods, I really want a new shifter and the 3.73 gears but I guess I might have to hold off on those mods till later. Or would it be a wiser choice to add to my current build list and eliminating something? opinions please

Build list looks good. Personally I'd go with the Borla Stinger S-Type catback, but that's up to you. You may also need camber plates with those lower springs (I could be wrong here though if someone wants to correct me). Also I don't know what order you're going with the mods, but personally (again totally up to you) I'd do this:
  • Tune & CAI
  • X Pipe & Exhaust
  • Lower Springs (maybe camber plates too if you need them)
  • Wheels

Looks like a damn good list! IMO I wouldn't spend 300 more to get the catback. Also check out Maryland speed and have american muscle price match. I think their s types are under 600.

Gears will be the biggest performance gain other than boost. I did wheels, lowering, intake and tune before I did my gears. It's just what you can afford and want to do first. I just hated the stock wheels and ride height, that's why I did those first.

@storm that's exactly the order I was going with. Definitely will look into camber plates if necessary.
@grabber yeah I had my mind set on exhaust and cai /tune. I hate the rims as well which is why I started looking into options. But hoping to get gears and short shifter asap to really get the most out the car. I'm also tinting window's and louvers will come after.

I would highly recommend plastidipping the rims you have for now, that alone will make a huge difference and allow you to tolerate your current stock rims for a while. If you're unfamiliar with plastidip I suggest reading up and watching some videos. You can paint your rims for all of $10.00 (2 cans should be enough for 4 or 5 coats on each rim).

@storm that was the first thing I did haha. I love plasti dip. I also was readings Q and A's on am's website regarding camber plates and most people just end up using the camber bolts so I might just purchase those for now.

Awesome list. I have the Borla S-Type and the Steeda CAI myself. Definitely great buys. I would go with a tuner/gear combo first. That alone will give you more bang for your buck. Then the Steeda CAI. With these 3 mods you will see a considerable bump in performance. After that I would get them awesome Borla AB.

I have all the mods I mentioned above which 3 are on your list. I didn't do them in this exact order, but if I could do it all over again I would.

Nice list. If you're going to lower it I would suggest getting a panhard bar. If and when you do get gears, I'd suggest getting lower control arms or LCA's. It's like most mods if you buy one part theres another part that just makes it work better haha. $$$

If you opt. to go with Borla AB first right now Autoanything.com has them for sale $73 cheaper than AM. Keep and I out on that site. I picked my Borla S-Type up for right around $500. That's only if you are willing to wait to see if they will offer another steal of a deal

Definitely appreciate all the advice! I totally forgot about autoanything and will be checking them out. It's crazy how much fun you get out of just looking for mods.

Was able to get my windows tinted today, I went with a 20% all around tint, and should be getting my rear and side louvers this week to install from autoanything. Also had the Am tail light tint installed by the tinter. Payed $250, which is $210 for the 5 Windows and the $40 for taillight installation labor.

If you plan on getting the cai and tuner kit soon, wait a few weeks. I talked with AM and the new SCT X4 tuner will be available on their website soon! It will be worth the wait, trust me!
