I am getting my tax return in about a week and will have about $1000 to spend, however I am unsure where I want to put it...I know I am buying the prepainted GT500 spoiler for $100 but i'm not sure wether or not to go with gears, or CAI and tune. Opinions please!! My car is bone stock manual by the way with 3.31 gears. This will be the first mods!

Doug has great tunes. You'll be thrilled with your car afterwards!! You can buy everything from him. Plus once you get new mods in the future, he'll email you new tunes for free.

True, the manual does indeed have the 3:55 gears, so I will concur and go with the CAI and tune. Brothers performance has a C&L kit with tuner currently priced at $650.

some few manuals come stock with 3:31 gears but that's if you don't have the limited slip rear

There is no way you could get gears and a CAI & tuner for under $1k unless you were installing the gears yourself, or had a friend do it.

Which should I go with first if I end up having to chose between the two?
