NEW 08 Looking to Mod
« on: September 10, 2008, 09:51:50 PM »
I want to do some mods with my 08 GT.  I am looking to do a cold air intake and exhaust to start out.  I am a newbie so I'm looking for some Motorheads to help me make some decisions.  I have done some research and have read about a flash program for the cold air intake, I think this is a must right???  Any suggestions as to which brand cold air intake.  And I am undecided about magnaflows vs flowmasters.  I want a nice strong growl but not too loud inside the car.  Suggestions are appreciated!  I know both will increas HP which is my ultimate goal.

if you want a cold air intake go with K@N not to expensive, gives a good higher rpm pull. if money is not a problem get a full exhaust system, long tubes, an x pipe with high flow cats, and a nice exhaust system, i have slp power flo exhaust so cant help with your two picks flowmaster and magnaflo. another cheap mod is rear end gears, maybe some 373's. also you can get an engine management system for your 08, $400 its called an X3 made by SCT, i have an live wire tuner, its a little more expensive because has a bigger memory for data logging, but the X3 will bring the same amount of power. this mod should be done after intake and exhaust.

I second the motion to go with the K&N filter to give you a better breathing EFI system.
