Default A better Mod?

I'm was looking to get a Stromung Muffler Dual Tip. I've heard so much about it and it seems like everyone else has one. But is it really worth it. Would it be better to drop the money into a torque chip from JC Sports or a S-AFC. Or is there a better muffler out there?

Your probably gonna get them all anyway, once the mod bug bytes its hard to kill it. There are many good exhausts for our cars, check around goto some meets to see and hear everyones.
I have the Scoobysport imported by SPD tuning and i love it.
The exhaust and the intake should be first before a S-afc.

All that other stuff is useless if your engine can't breath right.

Natural mods progression:

Suspension work
Exhaust
Intake
Chip, or SAFC
Nitrous
Cams-Heads




Make sure you have a plan. Either plan to go full NA or plan to go Turbo. Stick to whatever you pick and plan your mods accordingly. Example. If your plan is to go turbo in a year buying an intake now will be completely useless when you go turbo.

I am planning on going turbo next summer. I bought my car used with some NA mods already on it. If I had bought my car new with no mods heres what I would do:

1. Suspension work
2. Short Shifter
3. TEC-II and Clutch (same time)
4. Custom Turbo setup capable of 15psi but currently set for 8psi
5. Turbo Cams-Heads
6. Forged Pistons-Rods-Crank
7. Tranny and Diffs
8. Forged Short block (now were ready for 15-20 psi)



Have fun.

Brad
