Default what should i do next?

Currently I have an K&N cone intake, flowmaster muffler, and aftermarket tranny cooler.

What would be the best bang for your buck next mod?

ideas - MSD coils, taylor wires, high flow cat, heat shield?

and NO, I know there'* a couple of you out there who will say nitrous, but that'* not an option!

I'd say either finish the exhaust with the cat or go with the MSD coils.

Ignition... DIS4 module, coil packs, wires, and plugs.

dang

121-6215 DIS-4 Ignition (For Use On 6/8-cyl Engines with 3 or 4 Coil Packs). $329.99


that'* kinda spendy for me at the moment. i was thinking just the coils and wires. can pick that up for under $200.


how much noticable power would there be from completely going through the ignition like that?

When I first did Taylor 8mm wires and NKG plugsI noticed a slight difference.Most of wich was in throttle response. When I did the coil packs I noticed that the engine seemed to have a little bit more power behind it (cleaner spark / burn). I wouldn't expect a huge gain from these but it should be more than enough to notice it.

I haven't actually done the DIS4 yet but I hae heard really good things about it.

Do you mean "bang for buck" in terms of performance? If so, get a high flow CAT (punch it, lol).

ya bang for your buck performance wise.

high flow cat huh? i've been reading previous posts and have seen autosound or carsound, catco, magnaflow etc.

i heard there'* not much difference between them, so just a cheap universal fit?

High flow cat was a great move for me. I got better throttle responce and a great sound I only spend 145 for the cat and to have it installed
