    It's an endless circle!! Buy one thing and you'll be itchin for something else!!!
    Welcome!!

    I can agree with what Andrew said.... the best bang for the buck and real results in terms of speed - a Supercharger. :D

    Do some research - as you might need to do 'other' mods along with it.

    I appreciate your service to our country and welcome to TW! If speed is what you're looking for....supercharger, but I think it's gonna cost you more than $2500.

    i ended up buying a cold air intake and getting dynomax unrestricted airflow exhaust. bakerla im from missouri citty next to stafford. so not too far from you. no i graduated from goodfellow air force base (butim in the army) and my unit is in conroe. i researched a few supercharges but they were way too expensive. i also reconsidered lifting it...and im thinking about a 6" fabtech with 35" tires. still got a good bit left so i might be able to lift it fefore i go off to college.

    I'd pay off any outstanding debts. After that, I'd buy horsepower and accessories.

    luckily im only 18 so no debts...yet. and my mos is firefighting. specifically ARF - airport rescue firefighter. so maybe i will see you at the airport. i was talking to my mechanic and he said that the headache for putting headers in wouldnt be worth the hp gain. true? and also that it would disconnect a sensor that set off the CEL. and would a 3inch lift be worth the money? could that fit 34" without rubbing?
