Default what to do next...

Ok, stats are in the sig...

What major project should I undertake next that is going to net either additional performance or pleasing asthetics?

Just looking for insight.. I was going to get the moonroof put in but decided to wait until the end of the year and I don't want to do wheels or rubber right now either. I would love to get the Hypertech (any update on that Rat?) but I don't think it is available yet.

Thanks!

id say exhaust, headers would take most of that grand, but you could get a muffler and high-flow cat, but probly not all three. maybe headers and a muffler, possibly headers and a cat. who knows, just shop around.

I would definetly like to do the dual mufflers (the term dual exhaust is debateable).

I'd say do rockers or someting along the lines of breathing before headers.

Muffler/dual + Hi Flow Cat + Rockers = good noise, and great power gains.

Intense has new high ratio rockers out. High flow cats are pretty cheap, a 3" truck unit is best made for bigger engines, and flows A LOT MORE.
