    Looking for some Mod advice.

    Ok, bone stock 09 SHO. Looking for some basic upgrades to start off with.... best bang for the buck kind of modifications. From the pages and pages of info this is what I have gathered.

    So is my money well spent doing these first? or Grate..etc???
    1) Ribbon delete - simple cheap upgrade.
    2) Intake system
    3) Exahust

    Or should I just go right for the ECU reprogram and then make the above changes?

    One other question is can you run a ViPec on a stock SHO? If so, what will it gain, is it even worth it for what I want? I rather not chase my tail spending money on mods not needed to reach my goals. That goal would be to eventually run upper 70s and that's about it. I wouldn't take it any further than that due to it being a family ride and wanting reliability.

    If you want to keep it best bang for buck I would go with reflash from R&D jims plate and a Riva stage 1 with cooling upgrade or if u want a repitch of the stock impeller. I'm not so sure about the impeller though because I hardly know anything about them.
    So......
    R2 Reflash
    Cooling
    Riva Power Filter
    Riva Free Flow Exhaust
    Ribbon Delete
    Intake grate
    Ride plate
    and probably if u want a c1 or b1 wheel.
    and of course impeller to match your mods.

    Well then start with a stage 1 and when you get the need for speed go for the reflash. And +1 its expensive to go fast. Lol

    You can do 1, 2, and 3 of your list for a decent price. After that, you can get the reflash, then repitched impeller. If it will be a while before the reflash, you might want to get the repitch first. RickWhite's plan works, too, but can be done for quite a bit less than $900.
