Ok, so I picked up my car yesterday (FINALLY!) and now i dont really know where to start. I really have no mechanical skills. Ive never torn into an engine. I hesitant to do a PI swap when I dont think I could do it myself (Especially out of a hotel room and in a hotel parking lot). I really wanna start adding power to this though. As of right now it feels like it has a lot of power, but i think thats just because Im used to driving a truck. Where should a person with no skill start? I suppose I could pay someone to do the PI swap, but I think thatd be like, a lot of money (not sure how muh that stuff costs. I have a bit of money saved up, but I dont want to spend $3000 on a PI swap.) I did however order the Mach 1 Chin Spoiler, Black headlights, and Shorty antenna yesterday.

on a side note, is there anyone here from the Wisconsin Area?

oh, and just another picture:

also, just because this car feels to have as much power as the 04 GT I drove, how can you tell for sure if it already has the PI swap? I mean cus the car has some minor stuff done that makes me think that someone may have dug in a little deeper than what I can see.
