3.73gears, tune, o/r X or H pipe. Should hit you right in the 1500 dollar ball park.

You got bills or a credit card that has money on it? If so spend it on that. If not then spend it on headers.

Really? Let's all try and be adults. If not I will just shut it down. This was a great topic but it went south fast so let's all get back on topic while I clean up the mess.

Throw on a OR mid pipe and tune and you will see a big change. If you have enough left over go for a Boss mani. It will feel like a whole new car.

I apologize to anyone offend for myself participating in going off topic. Anyways If have 1500 I would go with maybe wheels and/or suspension kit. You could find a decent one for that price.

Gotta be honest here, I think with $1500 to work with I would look at an OR X-pipe or H-pipe and gears. I have 410's on mine and they REALLY woke it up!

Sorry,I forgot to mention gears.......I had 4.10s on my GT and my Cobra and I loved them. They are a real change on the butt dyno. I now have 3.73s and sometimes want to swap them out.

Shines in 3rd mainly for me from my 3.55. There was an immediate drop in pull from 2nd to 3rd on my stock S197. Four.10s cured that immediately.

Yes sir,they are a great addition. Only thing you have to keep in mind (for the OP) is your future plans for the car. (FI)

For 1,500 dollars. Sct bama performance tuner , cold air intake and set of gears unless your happy with your current gears. Then I would go with headers.

If you can't do it yourself I would probably budget $800 or so.

went from 3.31 to 3.73 gears. One of the best mods I made with the car. She really woke up like a brand new car afterwords. I always thought she felt sluggish off the line with the 3.31 gears. Not that she was, but my 2007 tundra felt faster off the line than her. Switching to the 3.73 gears removed that feeling and has kept it gone for well over a year.

honestly yes I would do a tune and gears long before a CAI. I like the sound an open CAI gives, but I don't imagine you do get much power from any of them.

I have wondered if I am loosing power with my roush CAI though, and is the real reason I want a different one. I have heard for a while the Steeda cai sounds far better. Just right now that is really low on my list of mods.

that is really pretty good. if you really take all the parts apart they are more than half that price. I think that is what most people pay. If it makes you feel better, the shop that did my gears for 550, wanted to charge me 600 to install shocks, struts, springs, cc plates, panhard bar, and then 150 for an alignment!

I didn't even understand how they thought I'd ever consider that.
