What should my plan be??

Okay so I'm in a great problem. Great because I win either way!

So far I have this installed on my DIB 2013 GT manual

-JLT Oil separator
-Boss strut tower brace
-Flowmaster outlaw axelback exhaust
-Sve drifts staggered on 255/45 285/40 nitro n555

I really want to go for more power, but I feel my car still needs some visual modifications (new grille, lowering springs, splitter)

Should I go the power route and start with the basic tune and cai then go straight to headers? Or try tackling suspension components? Or even better, a new shifter cause I'm manual. Where is the gain best to get, bang for buck value. College student here 😄

I'm going suspension, then shifter/tranny, then power. 420 hp is a lot of power and suspension issues should be addressed first. at least i think. Going flowmaster outlaws myself.

Best bang for your buck is going to be the tuner/tune.

What's the budget?




Excuse my naivety. I was born at a very early age.

Well budget would be better explained by being able to buy 300$ mods maybe once a month and maybe one 1000$ item(headers) would take me 2 months to save for.

What the best suspension component to look at? I try to do things I know I can install and not have to worry about alignments everytime. I wanna do it right the first time

Considering your car is stout right now I'd go visual and later on performance. That's what I'd do.




If there's one thing I know it's Popsicles!

Stout? And so maybe i shall lower it and upgrade the panhand bar? Maybe try a new grille and make the fog lights hidden, then go onto the tuning aspects

If it's a 2013 gt then that's 420 hp stock that's good amount of hp.




Many seek good nights and loose good days...

Ok I see what you mean. But it's not truly 420hp. I like to see what it is to the wheels. And 375issh go and 360issh torque isn't amazing impressive. In Houston, we got thing running way faster on the streets as daily drivers
