Borla Headers - useless. Produced nice exhaust note improvements but absolutely zero power improvement. Soon switched to Crawford Headers

AEM CAI - again, nice change in engine noise, but no performance gains.

Vortech SC - very disappointed with since I put it on.

































on that last one

Just an FYI - the B&M shifter is a waste. Mine makes so much noise that it drives me NUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NOT a good mod at all.

Mine makes an absolute racket as well (passengers have wondered what I broke), but it does cut down the speed of the shifts, and feels nice.

On the track, where you do use 3rd and 4th a lot and the car's making so much noise anyway, its not an issue.

Understeer is when you hit the tree with the front wheel.
Oversteer is when you hit it with the back.
Horsepower is how hard you hit the tree...
Torque is how far you drag it...

I hate mine once you get a certain RPM it makes so much noise you can not even hear the stereo.

I agree with the short shifter.

I spent nearly 500 bucks on a piece of shit that is in a box in the shed!

The second mod, and purely based on bang for buck, is the Rays wheels. I could of saved the several thousand $$ and put it towards something else.

As always

Really?

I couldnt be happier with my wheels, they make the car look a million dollars and the handling increase is fantastic.

Maybe because you didnt get to experience the car before you put the wheels on?

The Rays arent a full on wheel which stands out heaps but they are a very nice looking wheel.

How wide are the rays wheels?

My nokia blue tooth car kit. Have issues where the phone will not connect to the unit sometimes which is really annoying. Other than that I really don't have any complaints

Rizky - I got the Sony Ericsson one, and it works a treat. It synched seamlessly with my Nokia 6310 and Sony Ericsson T630.
