I'm far from $5000 for the supercharger. So whats some inexpensive pieces that made a difference that I can put on while i'm waiting to hit the lotto lol? I haven't put anything on my car in a while and i'm getting anxious. I need something to do. Any ideas:scratchchin? (note: you can see what i have so far below)

I just ordered a set of Kooks headers with the catted H-pipe. Hope they will be in by the time I get back from Iraq in a few weeks.

I agree with most, headers should be your next upgrade. Also, consider dyno tuning your car. With all your modifications, it is difficult to get all your settings optimized with a custom tune, no matter how good the programmer is. I had a dyno tune after getting my SCT and found out with all my mods, and after numerous consultuations with the tuner vendor, the custom tune were still making my car run lean. 150$ was all it took for the speed shop to custom tune my car and download three new tunes speciffically for my engine. It has made a world of difference on my performance.

Damn $150 for dyno tune? that is it?! I looked into dyno tunes last night for after i get my gears taken care of and move on to performance items like LT Headers and UDP's, Delete plates and well- his price is $550.. That is steep dude.. I would stick to my email tune and just have a wideband gauge to monitor the air/fuel..
