New to forum, got some questions

Hey guys, Im a new member to forum, but have been reading for awhile. I have a black 2002 svt. Right now I have a STS and a rear engine mount installed. I was wondering if it would be worth it to pick up the 2 mounts? Also, I planning on tinting and was wondering if anyone has any good ideas. I dont want it real dark, but just enough. I was thinking about picking up an intake, but there expensive. Is short ram worth it or no? Also, do guys have any other ideas for mods? I don't wanna go real big yet but I want alittle more power. An help would be great, and I just wanted to say I love the help on this forum. WD40, your guides on the STS and rear engine mount were awesome!

first of all

- i would say go for the other 2 mounts

- for tint if you don't want too dark i would say a 15 to 20% is what you're looking for

- www.hypnoticillustions.com (wayne) he's a sponsor to this site. he has a very good SRI for 150 shipped. i have it, i love it

- as far as other mods, everyone will agree you need to get ahold of tom or wayne and get a tune for that thing. overall better driveablilty and more midrange torque and horsepower by about 10-15 is what you'll get with it

Well, thank you!

The other 2 mounts will drastically tightening everything up, but will also drastically increase vibrations felt in the car.
I'm not sure I would run all three mounts on a daily driver.
That would get pretty annoying in stop and go driving.

BTW,

Would a homemade intake be as good as any other intake?
