What To Get For 700 Bucks?

Alright i just sold my dirtbike, and im getting 700 bucks after i pay it off. I already have a Intake, header, catback, and bigger wires. I was thinking of getting a tiers and rim package off of wheelmax or tierrack. If not rims mabey a body kit. I dont have much for looks now. I was also thinking of getting a 65mm tb, cams, and diablo chip. What would u guys do in my situation.


P.S. THE DAMN HURRICANE IS BLOWING SHIT EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!

If you want performance, a 65mm FC TB, AFX UDP, Cams w/ tuning. If you want looks, PLEASE get RIMS before BODY KIT, i can't stand seeing those rice burners run around with body kits and stock ugly rims, gah.

Okay, uhh, what is the piece that effects emissions from your engine, a catalytic converter. What does a header, flex, and catback do to effect the polution put out by your engine, nothing, just lets it flow out of your engine better. A highflo cat will have a larger diameter and may have a better design, it won't help a ton, but it'll help a bit. The best result would to just get a long tube race header and eliminate it.

the catalytic converter is the main emissions piece, it is filled w/ a catalyst which converts teh gasses coming out of the engine into more earth friendly, or rather less lethal gasses

catalyst= speeds up and/or inhibits a chemical reaction
