Mods in this order mate:

1. typhoon airbox (comes with secondary duct)
2. K&N panel filter
3. 2 1/2 inch mandrel bent exhaust, high flow cat, pacemakers 4490's or 4495's (4495's are more expensive and give you more top end, but I have no problems with my 4490's)
4. 3.9 LSD (no, fuel economy doesn't get worse unless your constantly on the hwy)
5. Underdrive pulleys (slight improvement)
6. After you have finished doing all your mods, then get a capa flash on the ECU and get it dyno tuned


You might want to also consider getting a transmission cooler upgrade. These mods will give you the most performance, there are more little bits and pieces you can do however I wouldn't bother with em. Brake upgrade would be my recommendation too as the stock brakes are pieces of s**t.

100% agree, should get you into 14s.
If you want more, add a decent high stall to the BTR and you'll run quicker then stock BA XR6Ts at the strip.

someone needs to sit those girls down and say, "now listen here, slurry, stop getting yourself knocked up"

or something to the effect. some of the things ive heard the girls doing in that town are downright discrasful.

a five or six speed it would be a very enjoyable car to drive, minus the fact that it would be constantly changing gears
