Help me spend some money

I currently have a few hundred dollars spare that I want to invest into my EF sedan

Im thinking out of the following

Cam
Cat back exhaust
DBA slotted rotors
or save the money and buy some wheels in the future

From experience do you guys find that the I6 responds better to a Cam before exhaust or vice-versa, or should I save up and do the whole exhaust system at once?

Re: Help me spend some money

get the cat back best $280 i spent and gives you a bit more go.


do your cat back and headers before you do the cam or just save your cash and get a JMM kit:)

Re: Help me spend some money

to get the most benefit from the cam, do the full exhaust system first (inc. extractors).

Exhaust and headers should always be done before any other engine mods, and in that order if done seperate.

Cam is next.

Don't bother with rotors unless yours are actually stuffed. Fit better pads and flush fluid if you want a cheap brake improvement, as upgraded rotors do next to nothing.

Wheels are always nice, but, I'd put them further down the list.

Re: Help me spend some money

yeah i say exhaust..thats the only "serious" mod i have done so far and it was worth every cent.

Im yet to do headers or any engine work but im just going to save for a dev3hl kit and get it all done in one wack.

Do FF or e-series members get discounts at JMM btw?

Also if the dev3hl kit costs 2700, and I already have the exhaust that is worth 300, obviously I dont need a new zorts and the kit will be about 2400/2500?

Re: Help me spend some money

id go a $2 can of silver paint from Clints for the Bling Rims, then down to the exhaust shop which will also allow for the Bling Rims to dry properly on the way.

Re: Help me spend some money

. My eb with cam only wade 1004 and cat back, used to flog my mates el with exhaust and extractors..

Id get the CAT back system prob 200-300 bucks, and a small wade grind for $120
So for around the 400-450 mark you will have a decent power increase, extractors may blow ya budget a bit. You will get more from a wade and cat back than extractors alone
