ok, i already have a CAI, 75mm TB and plenum, flows, and 2nd cat delete.

My question is, should i got for a hand held tuner, or some long tube headers. I already have my suspension and brakes done, so i want straight line performance now. Vote please!!!

Depends if you can do the long tubes your self, it will cost alot to have them installed and to buy nice ones, The tuner is only like 380, id take the headers for performance but your looking at spending some cash. Depends on what your looking to spend right now?

im relatively sure L/T's will throw a CEL so if you dont mind the light being on i would get those 1st. I think a pair of MIL eliminators will take care of the light. a tuner can do the same, just turn off the O2 sensors with if (if you have the right tuner that is)

i would be installing the long tubes myself, But nonetheless a tuner is much easier and quicker. What would i notice bigger HP gains with?

Headers and will help a lot if you ever do cams and/or forced induction.

Tuner would be good if you bought the tuner and then had it dyno tuned but no reason until you get some decent motor mods on there. Do the headers then after that get the tuner and get the car tuned when you get the extra cash. my 2 cents.

I mean i got mine after i did my exhaust, but i did it just cause i was getting my 4.10s and needed it and to turn my check engine light out, its definatley good to have, check codes and what not and i thought i felt a little better acceleration with it, Its good to have i just would take long tubes over it if you want PERFORMANCE right now like he asked you know. I cant run headers cause my car is too low and my driveway is too steep and sharp, car drags on subframes now/

with L/T if you get a light (not all do, but most will) it's the front O2's causing it & you can't use MIL eliminators on the front O2's, so you'll need the tuner any way. as to the gears, you'll need the tuner to recalibrate the speedometer anyway so, I vote tuner 1st.
