yeah man, if your car can't breathe with the same amount of air going in than out, you won't get any gains.

After that i would start up some head work, new valves, valve springs, cams, everything.

lightweight headers = minor hp increase, less weight

short throw shifter = shift faster and smoother

Cold air induction = richer air/fuel mixture, minor hp increase

Ignition, Ignition wires, and coil = more juice, plugs fire better, better Performance

Intake and exhaust should be priority, but also handling and suspension. Get a sway bar for the front and some coilovers and lower it. Better handling! thumbsup

hey thanks guys i appreciate the tips so far, i think it will really help. What do ya think about taking my muffler off and making the exhaust straight. I heard it can be really loud, so i was going to make it so i can put the muffler back on anytime.
