Next upgrade help

2000 GT w/ K&N CAI, flowmaster 40 series, SCT w/ custom is what I currently have. I am wanting to do 70mm throttle body w/ a new intake manifold that is aluminum or heat resistant. Opinions on if this should be my next upgrade for performance or what should I do???

I myself have similar mods done except I have BBK CAI, Magnaflows, and SCT w/ custom tunes. The next real bang for your buck performance wise is some gears. Upgrade from the stock 3.27s to some 3.73s! That is my next mod...then brakes and suspension, suspension, suspension!

Yeah, don't overlook suspension and tires. All the power in the world is useless if it doesn't hook!

How much RWHP are you getting with what you currently have now?

Gears 4:10's don't fear the gear! Actually we have similar mods so far I have SCT, Flowmaster Catback, 4:10's, SFC, K&N CAI. I just ordered the Accufab 70mm TB & Plenum kit but won't be able to install until the end of Oct or I would let you know what the SOP feels like.

Go with gears next though and don't be afraid to use 4:10's they are amazing! If you decide to supercharge later you'll want to stay away from Screw type or you'll light the tires up and go nowhere but you could still go with a vortech which winds up a little slower allowing you to use the power. Just my .02 Happy shopping!
