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

The kit I bought came with a Kicker amp.

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?

Exhaust. Doesn't matter what you go with. I did an axle back from Solo and the sound is so sexy. My wife loves it!!!

Here's a vid I did all about it:
