    Performance mods

    Hey all,

    I have been reading this forum and researching for days now and can't come to a decision as to what mods I want to perform first..

    So far I plan on doing the following upgrades: short ram intake, throttle body, exhaust, short shift, throttle booster (or PCM piggyback?) My questions are essentially, which ones am I better off with doing first? Is there any particular order they need to be done in? Will I sacrifice performance by increasing airflow with messing with the air fuel mixture?

    Any advice from someone who has had experience with this would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Zach

    This is just me, but this is the order I'd do things:
    Intake
    Muffler delete (or downpipe if it ever comes out)
    Intercooler pipes (you didn't list this one)
    Throttle body
    Intercooler (didn't list this one either)
    Skylar and swfldarting like this.
    Ordered 1/10/13
    Took Delivery 03/30/13

    My cars I usually start in this order:

    CAI
    Exhaust
    ECU
    Short Throw Shifter
    No turbo experience

    - factory if you can on the first three as they will play nice together otherwise you can end up at a tuner to tweak ($$$) the car you just screwed up! I bought a chip programmer for my BMW and ended up going back to stock program for best overall performance. I have heard we will be able to order the first three from the factory on GTs. : )

    So far the mod that needs a tuner when putting it on is the downpipe. Because of this, it's not available yet as the tuning solutions are still being developed.

    So from what I'm seeing (performance wise lol) is that I can do most mods without worrying about tuning, so I think I'll do CAI followed by exhaust (flowmaster?) then FMIC and piping. I'll wait out on the shifter until I've actually driven the car (pickup is Saturday lol).

    Thanks all, really appreciate the advice.

    Zach
