What can be expected from these mods?
I plan on doing the full tune-up by the end of the week.
Near future plans are NGK TR55 plugs, new wires, 180 t-stat, rice pipe CAI, and a 2.2 pulley. Are any exhaust mods absolutely necessary at this point? Could I get by with the stock exhaust (all brand new within the last year - cat back), or should I throw a better muffler on to at least help open it up a bit? WIll I suffer anything by not doing any exhaust mods at this point? The car is 100% stock right now with 85k on the clock.
With the mods I've listed, what could be my potenetial HP area at the wheels, without any exhaust work yet? Car runs 100% right now.
Thanks for any input.
