Default Question

So I'm hoping to boost within the next two years or so, but what all should I get done before that? Performance wise. What are the best options for better performance, besides boosting?

Thanks for the help

if your planning on boosting... dont do anything engine wise for now, do some piping exhaust work.

Just do all the suspension mods that you can. Not a whole lot you can do to the motor if you are going to boost it.

2 years is a long time but since you're planing on boost only mods I would get are suspension exhaust and wheels.

Transmission, whether you have a manual or auto.

Auto trans
Sprag Clutch, Valve body, Torque Converter for starters

Manual Trans
Clutch, Flywheel for starters

As previously mentioned by others, do your piping, exhaust, radiator, if an auto a transcooler, maybe a driveshaft, suspension all of that awesome stuff
