What should be my next engine mod?

Within a reasonable price range, what should be my next engine mod? Not looking to spend a ton of cash, but I'd like something nice and useful! All I have already is the AEM V2, but I'm looking to add more... Let me know what ya think!

What about catback exhaust?
Might still be a bit pricey though.
Maybe u.r. pulley.

Ditto on the pulley. Maybe jpipe (although it’s probably more of a “performance mod” than “engine mod” per se)? The jpipe produces torque gains throughout the entire power band, pretty useful imo

Performance mods will work... Guess I should've said performance instead of engine. I'm on a conference call now so not quite thinking straight! lol!

fuzzy dice, lol. How about that Stiffy Torque dampener from Ingalls? Its supposed to help with vibrations from the engine. There are some posts around with the install and other info. It seems very promising from what I read and the theory behind it seems sound enough. I checked the Ingalls site and its about $190.

That is the exact nature of the pulley, by way of simple physics. And it costs quite a bit less too.

John32, you have more air coming in your engine with the intake, I think you need to open up your exhaust to let this air out. I would get a j-pipe or custom exhaust, to keep your cost down.

J-pipe, best mod dollar for dollar IMO (but I don't have a pulley and they say the same thing )

i think pulley is a better mod over the Jpipe if you have to put them in order. for the daily driver.. theres more noticeable differences with the pulley (better acceleration, engine revs noticeably quicker). plus the pulley is about 100 dollars less than the jpipe (dont forget to get a new belt too if you get the underdrive pulley!)

I have both. Because of the price difference it's gotta be the pulley.
