Put your exhaust back to stock. You just killed your low-end torque, and any chance you had of spinning the tires just went out the window.

Besides, tire spinning goes nowhere, and puts undue stress on your trans. If your car means that little to you, best of luck.

Simply put, your modifications are heading the wrong direction already.

You don't want to do 3" exhaust anywhere on your car you will lose torque due to loss of back pressure. And no codes is a good thing. You have a tall final drive ratio like 2.93

read the trend i posted a link to. I love my car to death and havehad it 6 years. The only time i spin my tires is at the track and every now and again from a roll. Everyday i walk out the door i have to look at my car just sitting there. Cant drive it, until i come up with close to 1,000 for a tranny. Just me Wren is right, spinning your tires gets you no where. Its up to you though. But i would switch out the plugs, clean my MAF, and maybe shake the cat and see if it rattles, maybe it is clogging. Also get rid of the 3 inch exhuast, that totally ruins your low end torque (which is what you need to spin your tires). That would be a nice start.

I was merely pointing to the fact he most likely had gearing that was a big part in his inability to spin the tires.

2.93 is the S2 Supercharged ratio, and is low. 3.05 is tall. That'* what he has.

All a shift kit will do is firm up your shift. Only torque will break 'em loose.
