Seems like the T5 is the most dominant favorite upgrade....... Really making me think I should consider it.

The Street or Track front suspension and the experience of setting it up myself. Next would be replacing the C4 with a Toploader. The GT40P is a lot of fun too.

My Shelby Side scoops, SOT Coil overs, Cobra brakes and FR500 wheels. It really sets the car off.

Oh, the Speedhuts are definitely worth it!! The lighting alone is just amazing after the stock lighting. But it is also wonderful to actually know numerical values for what's going on with your engine, and their customer service/warranty is awesome.

But in comparison to things that make you go fast...

I'll start, I recently added a 8" Bazooka Bass tube in the trunk. Its small, fits in the corner and is easily removable. I didn't want a lot of bass, but now I can jam out cruising around town and not hear my flowmaster 40's.

Whats your's?
Building my 347. Most rewarding thing that I have done to date.........want to build another motor ( a 408) but lack of $$ and time is holding me back.
