    Re: Modded or Stock? That is the question!

    Unfortunately, bone stock excluding a cold air package and not too happy about the stock part. PRK
    is mostly to blame for it, plus finances, plus age, plus I also have a '87 Turbo Buick to support that
    may not be exactly bone stock. I am envious of those that have 600+ RWHP cars, especially in the PRK.
    Please pray for me.

    Airaid CAI, SW catback exhaust. Planning on a tune and going for maybe 650-700 HP when warranty is expired. Will solicit suggestions towards the end of the year.

    I'd say heavily modded. I have done some small things myself (ie headers, springs, etc) 21 CMC has done the rest. Can't enough good about them.

    In a 4300lb car plus driver, 556hp is adequate but certainly not awe inspiring. I say modify if the car is 3+ years old.

    I assume a CAI would be a good initial starting point with a new V ??? Planning on purchasing one later this year and am starting to look into what mods to do once I get it.

    Stock until out of warranty. Then maybe CAI, lower pulley, and a tune? Anything faster than 11.5 in the 1/4 would be a waste for me.
