Default Help! i'm hooked on mods!!

Sup guys,
i'm afraid to say that i'm hooked on my pt gt and i can't get out!
i never thought i would even think of doing any major engine upgrades,only makeup,but 2 days ago i bought the airaid intake...but right after buying it i've read a few posts saying that its kinda noisy...how noisy is it?

also,i'm already shopping for an exhaust...the btg axle back seems to be a good choice from what i've read but i also read that it's less noisy buying the whole cat back. $450+ (gulp)[:0]
will this ever end?
strut bar!
door spears!
spoiler!
i'm scared!!!

I bought my car in oct-nov and spend at least 2-3 hours a night on here trying to figure out what i want to do next for instance it's 2:15am right now and can't seem to get off of here. If it's made chances are someone on here will tell you were to find it and the best advice on the product

Also, dbraveman, don't forget that YOU WILL NEED a BTG "shorty" chromed radio antenna. PT Tuning (http://www.pt-tuning.com/ShinyStuff/...Main-Page.html) has a special on them now for [u]ONLY $9.95</u>. Great looking inexpensive mod! [?]

"Get this 16" Polished Billet Antenna for ONLY $9.95,
with any other purchase. Details."

I don't know about the airaid but my K&N definitely is loud at WOT and noisey at anything other than an easy acceleration.

Take your time. Write down all the mods you would like to do. Then write down the different ones available and cost, research each one carefully, join a local club, find someone who has the mod and check it out and then make your decision. Like the airaid, you bought it with out knowing how loud it is. Patience, patience! Good luck and have fun!
While your doing your research you can save your cash!
