I have a 2006 2.0L ZX3 and i want to do some upgrades to it. I dont know what would be the best things to buy for it. I do have some restrictions though i am only 15 and dont have a lot of money i am working whenever i can so when i get my license i can have a really good car to drive. So if you can give me some good things to buy for my car to make it look, perform and sound cool, it would really help me

CAI all the way. You will love the difference it makes. And it sounds awesome when you are getting on it. Then you shift and it almost sounds like you have a turbo.

No I had the one from FocusSport. They are all pretty much the same it just depends on how much you want to spend.

I think it's like $248 or something if you get it from www.c-f-m.com

and that would be for shipping to UT, so it might be a little less for you, as they're based in Florida I believe

I just went to the website and it is $224 to get it shipped to texas and in the way of exhaust do you recommend buying just a muffler

Or buying the whole exhaust system

ah so it's cheaper than I thought [:)] on the exhaust, I'd buy the full system since really that's what I just did! not from cfm though, AutoAnything.com has a great price on the magnaflow exhaust...though not to count out CFM because I just didn't look at their prices for the exhaust. So yeah, I bought the same type system you're looking at, and it should be here tomorrow [woot] whatever it was, I got it for about $340, though it would differ from what is compatable with yours

if you want to find out more info, ive got a few stickies at the top of duratec performance.

and i like the middle wheel, 16"

and if i were you, i would go with the eibach sportlines... i have them, which are a 2.0 FR lower and 2.2rear Lower, and i still dont think its low enough, so coilovers are in the future for me.
