Exhaust really isn't much of a performance mod... how about suspension?

HFP is $450 + camber kit $150 = $600 and your car will handle far better

Oh and don't forget the Comptech (or Acura TL) rear sway

DIY- it's not hard at all- don't even need a spring compressor- unbolt old, put in new- done (at least from what I've gathered)

how about the camber kit, is that a simple install too? I guess you would still need an alignment after all that, right?

Again, from what I've read on these forums it is not a difficult install at all.

In the spring I plan on purchasing new rims/tires, HFP (or maybe just springs?) and a camber kit and then installing everything all at once. Shouldn't take more than an afternoon or evening of work.

If you are looking for additional performance get the Unichip! Every member who has purchased their Unichip, loves it, just read the threads and see for yourself. The Unichip gives the most value out of your money compared to any other mod or combination of engine mods. The Unichip is the most versitle mod as well, becuase it can be reprogrammed when you add your exhaust system later. It's worth checking out before making your final decision.

The Unichips for the 7thGenAV6 are scheduled to be ready around March/05, with the 350Z and G35 to be available soon. Our V6P Business Team is in the process of updating our eStore with plenty of new products including the expanded line of Unichips. WE'll be offering a special introductory pre-order price for these new unichips. We are also hoping the 7th Gen AV6ers who said they wanted a Unichip will order one when they become available. . . Spread the word.

The 7thGenAV6ers have also made a strong impression with the STS team on our R&D thread, so much so they are considering maybe moving you v6ers ahead of the 350Z and G35. It's too early to give the final word, however the 7thGenAV6ers are definitely showing the most interested in the high performance products V6P is pursuing.

Like I said numerous times, let us do the product negotiating, while the rest of you continue to recruit new performance minded v6ers like yourselves, it's a team effort not an individual.

Thanks for everyone's support,

Maurice

Upgrade your rims to super lightweight forged ones that are <12lb!
Gives both performance and looks!

Yeah, it went up. That should be the mod everyone gets for their car. Possibly before exhaust, although to take full advantage of your car, you would want an exhaust and a chip tuned to work with it. Exhausts, however, aren't worth the money for performance. Pay $500 to $1,000 for a new noise and couple HP.

If you have the CAI already, go for the exhaust if you have to spend your money. Pulleys and chip will be out soon. And you could get the grounding kit. That's about all our cars get for now. Turbo/super on the way, but will cost a grip.

If I were you I would hold out for anything else performance wise until everything is out and cheaper. Spend the money you would have spent on an exhaust on rims or suspension. But like I said, if spending money, noise, and looks are your priority, go for the exhaust, but I don't think its worth it.
