Mod choice?

The next mods I'm considering are the Stillen Front Splitter, the VMax Ported Thottle Body, or the RX Catch Can. Essentially it is performance vs. appearance vs. protection. They are all about the same final price so I want to get your opinions on this. Which would you get first and which would you get last.

Throttle and can at the same time (look at pricing and you'll see why) then splitter.

Thanks, AUS for replying. Why would you do the TB and Catch Can at the same time? I have looked at the pricing; they are all about the same (+ shipping if necessary).

I should note this will be a birthday present and will only be getting one of them at this time. Thanks

He is referring to the fact that the core deposit on the TB is $200.00 So once you pay that instead of getting that money back leave it with Tracy and get the catch can. This is the route a few have taken.

I would do the TB. It provides some nice low end improved numbers. The catch can works well but if you get some oil in the engine for a little while it certainly will not kill it. It would be a nice thing to stop the ingestion but not a do or die item.

The Splitter is cool, but can wait to while you get some HP first.

Ah that makes sense. I will have to see what my mom is willing to spend. It's never very often you get a gift that is this much money. Thanks RTCat.
