    I have an 05 v6 and I want more power but I want to put it on without my parents necessarily knowing that I want more power, I want it to be like oh hey this saves gas or this makes my car sound cooler or look better

    Already have exhaust planned

    mine is almost 1000$ for six months :(

    is your ride an auto or stick?
    a tuner will make an instantly noticeable difference and would be your best bang for buck I'd say

    ahhh its because you guys are insuring multiple vehicles, I see
    and yeah with your car being an automatic you'd be able to change the shift points and all kinds of stuff with a handheld tuner

    dont change any shift points just let vmptuning do that . get all those parts and you can expect 25- 40 hp increase then when you slam a new rear end on there you can expect a totally different ride . getting rid of weight helps too .

    Ortiz tuning is good too. You get a real custom tune from them though. Bama tunes are suspected of being mostly the canned sct tunes
