So everyone, people are always posting about what they just did to their cars, how excited they are, how happy they are that they did it, etc. We all read and comment, and the post sinks away.

So I thought I'd ask what Mods you liked and didnt like in the end. For instance, I installed a Warm air intake on my old car, loved it for a few months, until it got warmer and the filter started falling off. Plus the car was a dog all summer because of the extremely hot air.. so I ripped it off. I did similar things with lighting, sound, engine performance, you name it!

So what products would you skip over if you had to do it again?

I love way the car ran with the K&N but at 32k miles my MAF died. The tech said that it is unusual for them to fail unless they get oil on them. I had recently installed the paper filter so there was no problem with replacing it. The car runs fine, mgp's went up a little but the funny thing, I didn't notice a major change in performance between the K&N and without it. I do recall last year when I put it in, there was a little more grunt (from the butt dyno) but since then I opened up the driver side of the air intake and I think with that opening, the paper filter is getting all the air it can use eliminating the improvement origionally gained with the K&N.

Did you have problems with the Pro-Kit, or was it that you just didn't like the look..???
Yeah, same question here. A couple of you guys have said you wish you'd gone with the sportlines. Is that just because you've gotten used to the prokit and want to take it further, or is there a problem with them? I personnally LOVE the look you guys with the prokit have on your cars. The sportlines look too low for me personally. I think it makes the car look like its slammed, vs the prokits which I think make the car look like stock, but with a more sporty appearance.
