Thank's for the help.! Frank
You're on the right track.
Bolt-on's will only net you so much, but there is a gain to be had.
In order of ROI:
1. Exhaust; headers, cats, mufflers. (Get it to breathe out)
2. Intake; airbox, plenum, tb. (Get it to breathe in)
3. Tune. I got one from VR Tuned. they send you a kit to flash your own using your laptop. Truth on this: you won't see higher peak numbers, but you'll get much more acreage under the curve. Trust me; it's worth the $800 or so. But do it last. get all the other parts together and working first.
