Don't see the point in doing that unless you are trying to get a feel for how each mod improves performance. But if you want to sequence things I would probably do exhaust first.

The only parts where that might help (if any potential problems could appear) would be with the suspension. Other than that, I would probably install as much as I could if you are going to dyno tune it and I don't like paying a couple hundred bucks just to redo the tune every time a new part is put on.

opinions are like, you know....

lots of people go power first. For me, yeah, I felt I should address the obvious shortcomings first.

That means a shifter braket and ball knob, a procal tune to tweak the lazy throttle response, low-end torque and crap gas mileage and then an upper/lower CA setup to plant the power the car has.

Then I added GT500s so I could hear the car properly.

Very satisfied overall, doesn't really need anything else at this point. A real drag slick gives me high hopes for 11s as it sits next year, as I'm at mid 12s as is, minus the LCAs I haven't installed yet.

Hmmm. i guess it doesnt really matter.

I will be starting with the exhaust and checking the dyno results to see how much power i've gained... then I will install the intake then the headers and do the same..

I want to know how much power I will get from each piece
