    lol im gonna go with tint i cant stand driving a car without tint now that I have it. it's a visual mod but it also has functionality in that it cools your car down and gives you privacy. it also stops you from being blinded whe some truck with HIDs pulls up right behind you

    if you want performance get the exhaust. my next paycheck im going to shop around and see where i can get mine done. and yeah frantik is right....tint is good....it does help when you are stuck in the 5pm traffic going home and the sun is going down....it does not get as hot in the car. just be careful and check your laws...i got pulled over for my tint. it was a 10 buck fix it ticket. i have 20% in the back and 35% in the front.

    as a i/h/e user myself, i'll venture out and say that even with my dc headers, i've only got an addition of a 10-15 hp from my whole set-up. i agree with gfrg88. if you want the best bang/$ ratio, go with a delta cam. they'll apparently do it for damn near $60 after core charge refund. you can't beat that. i think i might even get one myself after smog and when i get my tuition rebate.
