this is a very common post, buuut, most people will agree that the standard falcon exhaust is as flowing as a condom, so a good set of extractors, hi-flo cat, and a 2.5" pipe will give it a kick in the pants.

P.S. if your after realy cheap, the just search "airbox mod" here and you will find heaps of the for around $20.

hope it helps.

High flow cat and a standard cat "according" to people (usually pod filter user ppl, cough cough) its good.

But according to real figures, theres under 1rwkw difference between a shortened stock (or au one if u want so its newer) then a hi-flow. that and $200+ on it. And realistically your not giving the car any backpressure with such a free-flowed system in the end so ive been told a couple times.. im sure it'll be argued on but from what ive read and spoken/been told it seems to be pretty much right

You hook up the shift kit, to your ECU and it changes the gears, from changing slowly to changing though the gear quicker.

cost around $10 buck to make..
