Lightbulb What to do to the TA with 500 dollars.

I was just wanting to ask some opinions on what you guys would do with 500 dollars to put in your car. I want to get some more power so what would be the cheapest and best way?

Longtubes for sure. SLP's suck for LS1 cars, they maybe good for an LT1. Ditch the flowmaster to, they do anything but that.

dont get slp's... for money's sake, you want pacesetters, for quality's sake, you cant afford with $500.

Nice headers, but expect to pay almost $1k.

You won't get much for $500.
