What Bolt On Performance Mod led to the Biggest Smile?

There are a lot of posts here about all the different bolts on modifications you can buy. Some make no gains like a catch can, or maybe an axleback. Others make large gains like say long tube headers or tune (if you want to consider that a bolt on).

The point of this thread is which "Bolt on" mod have you done so far that led to the biggest smile?

For me, I would say Kooks headers were the most pleasing performance wise since it meant 10% plus more power. Then it would be followed by my exhaust cutouts just because it is fun to pull up to someone, and make the car sound like an old Camaro with dumps

There was nothing like the difference between a bolt on, non tune car, and a bolt on tuned car.

Just got cut outs. Sounds great with cam and headers. Big smile on my face when I set off someone's car alarm. I like the way JRE installed them as well - in the back of the car.

I would have to say my cutouts, followed real close by the 3.91 gears. I got the headers done at the same time as my cam, so I couldn't call that one.
