Thumbs up What should I do next?

If you guys had a grand to play with what would be your next mod ? I haven't done to much yet just taylor shorties, BT catch can,tinted rear tails,tinted front windows,touch screen reciever,SRT rear sway bar. I'm not sure what would be my best move right now, best mods for my money that will keep me happy for a little while lol .

At first I was thinking visual mods but then I was like I think I want a lil more power or better handling .

so if this was your last grand for awhile what would everyone do ?

Any feed back is appreciated !

Bilstiens are a great upgrade and with good shopping can be had for less than 350 also for handling when replacing Xbox also replace coil isolators, front and rear, for engine, cold air intake and exhaust and get a tuner.

Re: What should I do next?

For a grand I would get an Intune with CMR custom tune, a ported 85 mm TB, and add the front SRT bar to get rid of the understeer and front end bobbing around from having just the rear bar. Sway bars are also springs, and the front needs to match the rear. From my experience, an intake and exhaust are not just a total waste of money, the 5.7 runs worse and just makes loud noise, losing drivability with poor low end torque and part throttle response.

Yeah def not buying a intake , last ower already had the exhaust done and I hate the tips they used (they are super gay) but before i get new tips i was thinking about a better sounding muffler then the flowmaster that is already on it

Re: What should I do next?

I got mine from Modern Muscle. New OEM TB, CNC taper ported. You can remove your existing one and send it in for porting to them, or Fastman also.

How are the sway bars treating you ? Thinking of getting both front and rear sway bars from an srt but where you get yours? Btw I got a flowmaster 40 series with a black tip worth the money.

Thanks
Alex
