With any drop I would recommend at least getting a camber kit for the front, turning could put premature wear on tires even with toe in spec. Rear should be fine, I'm running -3* out back with toe in spec. Been running for almost 5k miles with normal wear

More weight over the front wheels, especially when braking. The rear pads are smaller than the front.

^^^What he said. The rears are always smaller..even in front wheel drive cars. You can always buy a big brake kit upgrade, but the front will always be larger

Hey...does anyone have any sound clips of a coupe with a stock muffler but with 2.5 or 3" piping? Curious to see what the tone difference would be

I have a 2004 g35x and only get 16.5 city and 21 hwy. I have iridium plugs, new tires and even got a $500 Uprev tune. I dont use synthetic oil but I do use 91 premium (that's all that's available). Wish I could get better gas mileage. I can't do any more with the car. Don't know what to do.

Performance upgrades

Hey guys, I have some extra cash on my hands so I thought I would upgrade my engine . However, I'm not really sure where to start. Are there some resources that I can read to get some more info? I know that I could get headers, an exhaust or a cold air intake, but I'm not sure which one to do first or anything like that. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

At the top of the Coupe page is a sticky that will answer your question regarding upgrades. It would help too if you posted the year and model of your coupe, AT or MT....Gary

I think headers are overpriced for the gains you get. I skip them completely honestly. I go CAI, test pipes, plenum spacer (or kenetic plenum), and then exhaust and a tune. if you want to add a few other things in there, knock yourself out. depends what you want to get out of the car, and how much you eventually want to spend. a few bolt ons with a tune is a pretty mild gain, or you can save up and go FI for actual power.

Just my .02

Hey Eneq, If you up grade your car you will need an custom tune with it. It's called Uprev tune. Seymore here on the forum did mine and it ran much better. after downloading the program he will tune it through your computer. Tell him Ed from Denver sent you.
