Default Kick From the Start

All right what mod should be next if I want more kick from the start. I have the high flow cat should I go ahead and put a pro muffler on, would that give me more kick off the start? Should I keep my ram and pop a cold air on it?or maybe just an element? I got good plugs and wires... where should I head next?

I'd do an intake and definitely do the muffler to go along witht the CAT. Basically I have Taylor wires, performance plugs, Magnaflow muffler as my true mods so far-waiting on my intake still- and I get a very good start all the time. But I also don't squeel my tires like the ppl I race.

Yeah the only way I can squeel my tires bad is if it isnt too hot out and my car is at IOT. I think Ill go ahead and get my flowmaster muffler and then Ill do a CAI. Also I am thinking about rebuilting the top half of my engine. I wanna get my engine all tweeked out before I do any serious body work, because I dont trust myself working on my engine with a new paint job. I definatly need new rims and rubber that shall be after the CAI and the muffler.

Tried a 180* t-stat yet? If you get one make sure you drill it so your temps rise too high in town.
How about removing the MAF screen and cleanign the throttle body (I pulled my screen out in April, but finally cleaned the tb last week and immediately had a slightly better throttle response -no more power, just better response, but well worth it).
