Re: options

just a quick question...
Don't you need to do the exhaust before the cam to get any
decent results from the new cam???

My order:

Lowering
Sound System
Wheels
Tint
Extractors
Exhaust
Cam
Paint Job

I only listed paint job last because my car was resprayed before I bought it. If I had a dodgy paint job then it would be first on my list. :)

Re: options

I listed extractors and then cam because of the reason that the extractors and high flow CAT are the main factors to helping the cam along.

On the other hand, Exhaust refers to 2.5" pipes, which might help out a little, but makes more noise then power improvements IMO.

Also, if you lower it to the minimal legal height (I peosonally would not go any lower) then any wheels on the market will fit in there with basically no problems.

Tossing between a few things.

Re: options

If I was starting my EA again I'd go:

LOWERING 1ST!!!! If you dump your EA hard straight up even with 14"-15" stockies you will look like a sick c*nt. And make sure you go LOW. Drop 3" (4" if your game) off that beast!

Exhaust 2nd. People will hear u coming and go, "sick, look how low that thing is!"

Paint Job....only if it needs it.

Tint (to hide the next thing on the list)

Sound System. Make people turn their heads with some 'doof' 'doof'...........

Wheels. Then they can look at your shiny wheels tucked nicely under the guards

Extractors.

Cam.

If your starting out and gonna do things slowly, I prefer 'SHOW' to 'GO'. At least then you can cruise Chaps in style and the traffic moves so slow though there that your never gonna have to show off your horsepower (or lack thereof) hehe :)
