Right now I'm running a stock 2001 Tib.
I could really use some help in planning future mods.

I'm basically looking for pick up speed.
I'm faily happy with my cars top speed so top speeds not much of an issue.

Intake, exhaust, bored throttle body, bored intake manifold, suspension, down the line you could go with nitrous, or turbo/super...

It all depends on what you are going for!

If you wanna be an autoX fanatic and canyon carver, go for suspension mods, a short shifter, and some lightweight rims 16" to 17" in diameter with good tires (Kuhmo's, nitto's, toyo, bridgestone potenza's, yokohamas, etc).

Show car type? Get a nice bodykit, slam it, BIG rims, lights, audio, etc. Remember tho, less is more.

Wanna drag? Do a lot of internal engine work (pistons, head, port&polish, rods, crank, blueprint, balance) and then add NOS/Boost gratuitously after months of dyno tning and several destroyed engines/trannies.


Basically decide on what you want your ride to look like, how it should handle, how it sounds (musically and mechanicaly), and how fast you wanna go. Planning is the mos important thing you can do to have your car come out how u want it.

I'm pretty new to this so I'm not sure where to start.

I wanna drag. What mods should I get?

I'm going to have my TB and IM bored and polished soon.
Don't have a CAI yet. There's so many, I don't know which to get.
Was thinking about making a custom short RAM, but concerned about hydrolock.

What should I move on to after I've had these done?

I wanna go forced induction not n/a. But don't know if I should go turbo or super.

You see I'm completely lost.
Basically I want my tib to accelerate FAST.
But not to the point where I'm going no where and just spinning my wheels.
