I currently have a cai, borla cat back and just ordered obx race header and was wondering what to get next. I want to get either a volant cai or a fc tb but i dont know if i get the tb it will not be ntoiced as much as the volant decisons decisions decisions.......if you have any other suggestions leave them in a reply.....later

feedback would help[thumb]

actually the TB will prolly be much better, you will get better throttle response as compared to a cai...plus you never mention what cai you currently have.

Maybe a sct tuner or some other tuner. Contact Hypnotic Illusions at 770-378-3447. Tuner is one of the best things to do for the money.

So you have a catback and race header but no aftermarket flexpipe? If not, go with one of those.

the TB won't doo much for you unless you end up getting the whole system upgraded, including the intake manifold and the cylinder head. I would rather spend the money on a Volant as the gains will be better out of the box.

Go with the Flexpipe, i had intake OBX 4-2-1 race header and my catback and when i put the Flex on it made a big difference. i suggest that and its like 115 shipped. that would be my suggestion

*in my opinion*


1. finish up yer exhaust... other mods are meaningless unless your exhaust piping is consistantly sized through and through....

2. get that *^$(#^$(# pos ghetto-fabulous ebay special intake off yer car... you should be smacked (dont feel bad i had an ebay intake once upon a time)..

3. get the throttle body anyway... you'll end up with it down the road one way or another... might as well go ahead and get it now...

4. stop spending money and put some serious thought into what you want your car to do for you... then establish a budget.. and start saving!!! this is quite possibly the most important step

once you know where you wanna go with yer car (whether it be n/a, supercharger or turbocharger)... save up and buy it!

Maybe intake next.. I will disagree with a few and say wait for the tune till you are done all your bolt-ons!

Flex-pipe isn't a bad idea either.

The tune is the best part, IMO. That was the first mod on my car. The other mods make a world of difference when you install them with a tune.
