Cigar Lighter = Fuse.

if u want better accel, get gears and a traction lock. for sound get some long tubed headers a a catted or catless mid pipe and some dual exhaust.

And definitly get a tuner i recommend sniper.

Gears and a shift kit (auto) go a long way on fun to drive 6'ers!!

no need for a shift kit with a tuner has the same effects and the best part is the pressure is adjustable

also there is no point in getting a steeper final drive gear with out a traction lock. otherwise ur just going to do a one wheeled peel and a shitty launch every time.

he will still want a shift kit, and a shifter to strengthen the transmission valves for the down shifting he will do heres some info on the shift kits, it will give you faster shifts and manual control over your gears.
Info On shift Kits
also gears and t-lok are a good mod, headers and full exhaust, UD pulleys, a CAI, and of course a tuner you will have a fun little car.

its easy you just need to read the instructions that came with it and follow em..

with the sniper you just need to select the mods you have.. there are more advance settings but if you dont know what ur doing dont touch em.. just use the basics
