It's pure and simple. I've done weeks of reading & research. I've concluded that the best bang for my buck is the JWT pop charger and the Helix test pipes.

Factors in my decision are price, ease of installation, sound and performance. I also feel like feeding more air into my engine should be complimented by a free flowing exhaust system. Therefore, removing the cats completely seems like a good start.

What do you guys think? Comments & suggestions are always welcome.

i recommend getting resonated test pipes.. it will removed the tingy sound..

also, who told you that test pipes are easy to install? they are a pain in the ass, but doable..

I also agree that those 2 items are the best bang

good research!

Even the Wife liked the JWT Pop. Just start the small screwholes in the plastic air box with a hot's hard to get a drill in there.

Test pipes will be next for me...would like to hear a few more guys sound off on the sound first.

What about throttle bodies? Anybody?...

What's Next?

I agree with you its good for the money, but I would go for the resonated pipes like Toykilla said. Will make a definate improvement in the sound over non resonated test pipes.
