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.
Very true, Im going off what Ive read and not from personal experience so I didnt think of it like that.

Bullitt95 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.

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.
