Yes that definitely makes sense Trevor. My main goal right now is I want to keep my driveabilty but add a it more rumble and HP without crossing the line. I know there is a fine line. Lol.As has been said, mods can be done in any order, but HP gains come
with the right parts added at right time, so doing In a certain order makes sense.
Budget is also a consideration, as thats how this topic started.
Long tubes and exhaust are very subjective, with right parts before
big gains come from right flow, as also said up thread.
But with everything comes choice.
farther you go with suspension, nicer ride goes away.
Sometimes finding the balance is the hardest part.
Also no one wants to spend 3k on exhaust system to realize
its too loud.
This is where homework comes in. Remember this started as away to add
100+hp over time. A person can start a kiddy, wait 2-3 years and add SC
for 5-8k with ver little other mods to get 100 + hp
As with all things in life its choices. End of day each person and car is unique to them.
Some are happy with 250-300 HP and gives them more than enough for great
Sunday afternoon drive and the odd little bit of spirited driving.
Knowing where you want to be, is as important as the journey of getting there.
I may just walk it for a bit and see how it goes.
Cams have been on the list for many years. I know plenty of people will say it is a waste if you don't go long tubes at the same time but I would rather try it and see then do both and like yoh mentioned regret it because it is too loud.
This has been fun and a learning experience like I said. But I need to start somewhere and see where it goes.
So many options....
