Want opinions??? Start with a cheap CAI and get dual exhausts. Its a good base to start from. This has been debated a billion times and I think this is what most people would say.

heres the cheapest possible way to get the best performance out of ur car:

1----xcal 2/3 flash tuner
2----4.10 gears and t-lock(do both at same time to save $$$ on install)
3----cold air intake
4----nitrous

and than if you want to continue w/ more bolt on mods than do:

5----full exhaust(longtube headers, 2.5" o/r h-pipe and 2.5" catback)
6----25% underdrive pulleys
7----aluminum driveshaft

than after that you can get into internal engine work and big power adders like turbo/supoercharger

get an exhaust first.. so you actually feel/sound like your driving lol..

Then performance wise.. I know everyone who has Gears and T-lok, including from personal experiences, has ALOT better acceleration. And tune to back it = a whole new feeling car, performance wise.

First, Welcome to the forums. Second, what is your budget? How much money are you willing to spend on the car? You have been given a lot of good advice in this thread. However, before you do anything to your car you should figure out what your ultimate plan is for the car. Once you figure that out, start modding in a logical way to reach that goal.

Not if you get your tuner from Trick Tuners, SCT Flash Tuners, SCT Flash Custom Tuning, PLX Devices widebands and gauges, SCT Flash tuners, SCT Xcal2, sct livewire, sct xcalibrator. You get free custom tunes for 2 years:D:cool:! After that it's just $40 for another 2 years!
