Blacking out the front fascia and Zl1 grille make a hufge difference in the look of the car.

Headers change the sound sooo much

And of course I can't get headers because of the freaking LFX stuff.

The kit I bought came with a Kicker amp. I don't know if they still use the same one in the Stealth kit, but it fits perfectly on the driver's side of the trunk, looks factory, and is very easy to hook up to the BA factory system. 12" sub, 400 watts, I believe. Just go to the ******** website and you'll see the options they have.

BBK long tube headers w/ mid pipes, a JRE Tune/skip shift eliminator and a short throw shifter. I've never been fond of emissions laws or long shifts.

All the mods I've done I knew what to expect when I got behind the wheel again, but the mod that surprised me the most with the biggest "night and day" effect would have to be BUSHINGS!

Had springs and sways(Pfadt) before bushings but once they went it....night and day difference to the overall feel of the car imo.

What bushings? Did these mods help with the steering and center feel of the wheel?
