Depends if you have a lust for power or if you can maintain, I also agree with hotwheels. Set your car up for the power than add it. It would be nice if you have the patience. Or if you want the power H C I will do the trick.

What are you gone to do with the car? I would start with sub-frames first before anything. First engine mod was headers just to buy them again later due to the quest for more power. I tell all my customers to Know what they are gone to do with and what they expect from the car when they start mods so they dont buy parts 2 and 3 times. But most of the time it still dont work.LOL

SO TRUE !!!! I cant count how many people have said "all" they want is xxx. well when it gets the xxx they come back and want more.. usually has to be totally redone and most everything they first bought no longer works with the new combo.. bunch of wasted $$$$$

MY first mods were as follows... removed air silencer/added a K&N, Sub-frames, brakes, exhaust and then started to get parts to "free up" power like UD pullies,ele fan and supporting mods,smog removal,A/C removal, a alum driveshaft. I wanted to free up the power the motor was allready making plus these mods can go on almost ANY setup lol lol
