i can attest to that... i even scored a free snapon screwdriver from the installthe best mod for the money is the UUC short shifter that we happen to sell....
I usually sport my 'I Love Tony' Button, but where can you get headers + high flow cats for 1k?Headers+ HF cats ~ $1,000
UUC Flywheel $425 (+$250-300 for installation)
Stealth tune (a must) $400

Of course you do- I'm a lovable guy!I usually sport my 'I Love Tony' Button, but where can you get headers + high flow cats for 1k?
Kooks are about 1500 shipped. Add in install + tune you are just at or over 2k.
Absolutely agree. NOTHING beats the bang-for-your-buck option of nitrous, period. It's cheap and effective. You can add 100-150 fairly easily and cheaper than $2k. If you do this, it's not even a race. But what happens when you run out of NOS??I have to give the classic 'It Depends' Answer.
Absolute best bang for that buck is Nitrous.
If you plan to do other mods in the futrure, then DEFINATELY go with headers and tune. You should see 40-ish from that. Dependant upon which headers you choose, and the skill of the tuner. Also, depending on which options you go with (cats or no, coated or not, new wires/plugs), it will cost a bit less than 2k or a bit more.
I vote for headers, as this starts to set you up nice for other future mods.
As I look back, Headers should have been my first mod.
+1 for agreeing with a genius :thumbsup:Absolutely agree. NOTHING beats the bang-for-your-buck option of nitrous, period. It's cheap and effective. You can add 100-150 fairly easily and cheaper than $2k. If you do this, it's not even a race. But what happens when you run out of NOS??
Headers would be good for a NA motor, so keep that in mind. Keep in mind this mod often calls for increased monitoring of the headers and the corresponding gaskets. (Note this is not to say that headers wouldn't be good for a SC motor, but SC motors are a different animal. Headers, while helpful, take a back seat to boost. One of the most powerful Vettes at A&A Corvette was running the STOCK EXHAUST and he was pulling ~800+rwhp due, primarily, a lot of boost)
A DYNO TUNE is the most important thing to have done. Note that if you are considering any other options (say, headers), do a tune AFTER you do these modifications. Also, the ludicrous CAGS can be eliminated with this as well.
A CAI and cat-back exhaust aren't going to do much, so if your primary goal is to defeat your wife in her SRT-8, which won't be easy mind you, I'd pass on these mods.
The UUC/B&M shifters are really cool and one of the best mods to do, but I don't see how they are going to help THAT much for his goal.
I agreed with a genius? Where?+1 for agreeing with a genius :thumbsup:
Seriously though, good points about N/A vs. FI. Headers are great, but if you go FI, they aren't as big of a bang.
