Got a 3v auto! Any help on modding?

i just got a 3v auto 07 with 90k miles in it. I am planning to make a fun cruiser car. I do a lot of city driving. The car its stock, i just have purchased a CAI and my next mod will be tune and 4.10 gears. Those are the most bang for your buck from what I have read. Correct me if I am wrong.

Any other ideas on how to make the car go fast but without making it loud?
This are the list of mods I think they are too expensive, loud or not worth the hassle.
LT headers
62mm throttle body
Mufflers or O/R pipe

Any mods that you can suggest to make the car still reliable and suited for comfort driving without loud cabin noise? Or thatís just it.

Supercharging is not an option.

On a 3V auto I'd recommend a CAI, tune, 4.10 axle gears, and 3000rpm stall torque converter as initial mods.
If you still want more power, you could do charge motion delete plates and underdrive pulleys.

Skip the throttle body unless you get a good deal on one, and not a BBK... Also rear upper and lower control arms will help control wheel hop.

Also I highly recommend getting an oil catch can, transmission catch can and another transmission cooler to run in line with your stock cooler. Read up on the 5r55s and youll see both those mods will help extend the life of your transmission... thank me later lol.

Totally agree on the above however at this stage, rear LCAs with relocation brackets will suffice for now to control wheel hop. If you decide to add lowering springs later on, you'll need an adjustable UCA to correct the pinion angle and an adjustable panhard bar to center the rear axle.
