Car Modifications

Has anyone done any serious car modifications? And no, I don't mean that you took off all the chrome on your car, or put racing stickers all over the place. Anyone messed with headers or done any tranny work? How about engine stuff?

So far, I've installed a Ravin' Exhaust System on my truck, and no that's not a fart can. It's everything from the catalytic converter back, including a muffler and dual outputs. I'm looking into buying a Trans-Go shift kit to install and I'm thinking about some headers, if I ever get the money for them, lol.

Haha... this is an old thread. But- I did get my shift kit installed and MAN! FREAKING AWESOME!

Before: 0-60mph in 17 seconds.
After: 0-60mph in 10 seconds.

0-60 in 10 seconds? That isn't very fast at all, but it isn't too bad for a truck. My tuned Sunfire does it in about 7.8

I should clock my Escort when I get it. No mods at all to it, heh.

Yeah, my truck is not fast at accelerating to 60, but I can get up to 40mph in no time at all. Lots of torque and medium amounts of horsepower. But yeah, I can beat Mustangs off the line, I just get wasted in the long haul. It's still great for owning someone at a stoplight though. Right around where I live, there are a bunch of two-lane roads that drop down to two lane roads right after a stoplight. Great fun ensues.
