Lol, check the tech stuff. The intake pipe most of us buy are from autozone, then mufflers are really any type of f-body and a hi flow catyltic to match your cars pipe size.

A smaller pully is the best performance money can buy right off the bat.

What do you want your car to do? Following this mod formula that'* been floating around here is just following the norm. Do you want your car to handle like it'* on rails? Do you want it loud, a street machine, or a highway terror?

180 thermostat and tranny cooler first.

In that order.
