I was wondering if anyone has customized this engine:



Also I am new to engine mods. What should I do first? Or does it really not matter?

First things on your list should be:

1) Intake
2) rear engine mount
3) shifter bushings (not really an engine part though)

But seriously, get an aftermarket intake! You'll see something like 15-20 extra HP, even more torque.

if anyone else read the thread title he wants to know how to dress it up not make it faster. some parts do both like an intake or tubular manifold, front mount intercooler. or paint the intercooler cover, do wire covers of your favorite color

crazy azz for sure :p
CSRT is coming along but slow
have all the parts just not installing yet since it just hit 1000 miles and I am finally going to change the oil
I'll be more into it when the weather breaks I guess...

I do like the car though
it reminds me of my 86 GLH back in the day
yes, another ugly car but maybe that's what I like???

GL with your car Robbie
Looks killer with the new wheels!
