Buying new wheels.. Or buying a complete exhaust system and tune...


If I get wheels I want to get some 18in super laps

Exhaust will be test pipes tune and some sort of axle back..


This is currently a daily driver and will track it in the future once my car is paid off...



What should I do?! Lol
I have $$$ burning my pockets right now.

Another vote for exhaust. Buy track-specific wheels/rubber later for when you start doing HPDEs with the car.

Wheels, Exhaust and drop...

then start with little things.

then TUNE..

Edit... EXHAUST and TUNE.. FYI before getting tune, a must before a TUNE..

make sure you get the entire exhaust primary cat delete to get the full potential on a tune. FYI though exhaust sound can go crazy depending on what your going to get...

My suggestion.. TTP, or MS TP ... both works the same way and get a quite exhaust if your going to delete the primary cat.

Actually if you were'nt in California I would say X-Pipe and tune. The Xpipe gives it a perfect sound and you will gain a good 20-30whp. You will also have a spare $1-2k to put towards wheels later.

Exhaust and tune all the way!!

My car became so much more enjoyable to drive when I putted my Corsa exhaust, and a 40hp more from the test pipes and tune should also transform your ride!!

Looks like the exhaust and tune are on their way... Now the question is, if I run test pipes. What axel back would be ideal so I won't get pulled over, or piss my neighbors off...

I was thinking test pipes with exhaust mod or catless x and stock muffler?

Thoughts?

Totally subjective. You could get pulled over with any exhaust. Test pipes are illegal so you just have to know that going in if you're worried about the cops.

Agreed, I guess what my question was , what is the quietest catless set up... Obviously knowing that catless is going to be loud anyway..

I ran a catless x pipe on my old blown mustang gt with flow masters and that shit was WAY WAY too loud I swapped it in two days..

Just do catless and the stock muffler if you want quietest. But then really what's the point? To me there's no point in doing the x-pipe mods just to leave the stock exhaust.

Ill have to go to a meet somewhere to get an idea of what it'll sound like and compare and find the right one for me.
