So i have about 1200 dollars to spend. I have a CAI, SCT livewire tuner, X-pipe, slp loudmouths. I i have no idea what i want to spend this money on..I like body mods but would rather have performance. I was thinking shaker hood scoops but reviews said there wasnt much power boost. So i was thinking cams, headers, pulleys, mac pro-chamber (cause i love the sound :) ) that stuff for performance. Look wise i was thinking halo lights, louvers, stuff like that. I jsut need ideas on how to maximize performance for that amount of money as well as get the best bang for my buck, whether it be performance or looks or both. So please help me! iam so indecisive!

Will you be installing gears? If not, say more like 500 installed.

Suspension or tires are always a good idea.

Cams + Gears installed, if you do it right ,could be about 1200 bucks. Best bang for your buck IMO.

If you wanna stay NA there are other things but its alot of small stuff to build up.

Im saving up all my cash for a Turbo in February, 5 grand.

1200 is a good start. Maybe you should go Big first, then upgrade the small stuff later.

If you want more power there are : UDP's, Cams, Gears, SpyderShaft, Nitrous,Heads. For N/A applications.

To put your current power better to the ground you can do

Suspension(panhand, sway,lca's , etc) - Tires.

I dont want to add nitrous just because of the increased wear and tear it comes with. Are shorty headers worth it? i have already replaced my mid-pipe once and dont want to have to do it again with long tubes.

Nitrous, if tuned well enough, shouldnt wear and tear as much as normal usage would. Shorty headers are honestly, IMO, not worth it.

LT's are the way to go, and you can always cut back a little on the midpipe.

I think blow by racing or something along those lines makes a single pipe, instead of dual. It is suppose to be less restrictive compared to Cervini as well.

You can always fab your own too.....

I wouldn't spend the money on it. talk to Rich from RadMustangs...he's a vendor on here and he has good prices.
