"Night and Day" Mods

Hey guys!

We all know about those surefire "permagrin" mods like turbos, superchargers, and nitrous but I'm sure we've all had that mod that wasn't everything we expected it to be. Well I'm asking you to share what mod has made a "night and day" difference for you and would do all over again without hesitation and why!

3.91 gears. Really woke the car up and it feels several hundred pounds lighter.

Exhaust most definitely! I had new exhaust within 2 days of bringing her home and it took that long bc I brought her home on a Friday at 9pm. First thing Monday she was in the shop getting flowmasters. These cars need a good rumble, way too quiet stock. And a CAI helped with throttle and sound as well. First 2 mods that should be done IMO

#1 for me was putting 3.70 gears in the auto. #2 was probably the tranny tune and removing AFM.

I've read that the 3.70's are better for the auto than the 3.91's due to the transmission gearing.
