    How to spend money...(GTX)

    Trying to figure out what mods to do (07 gtx ltd). I have been reading ALOT and don't kno what directon to go, have about 1500 to spend, don't worry about washers, doing those don't need to be included in 1500. Theres some parts in classifieds i'm trying to decide if i should spring on, here's my ideas:

    Rotax SC impeller - 300 (classifieds)
    4 inch intake - 100
    14/19 impeller - 150 (classifieds)
    wedge - 100
    Jim's ride plate - 250ish (shipping cost...)
    xs ic- 400???
    42# injectors - 100 (classifieds)
    4-tec tools/random stuff - 100
    free mods
    TOTAL: 1500

    Basically what i'm wondering is if i should spring on the rotax impeller and 14/19 and possibly 42#s sense they are all good prices and much cheaper than new....

    How hard is it to install an intercooler? I'm not sure if i'm up to the challenge so i might go a different route there.....just not sure lol

    oh...and how fast do you think this would get me going?

    If you get flexible IC piping from Danny installing the XS should be pretty easy.

    42# injectors are in the classifieds alot.

    I would say grab the 14/19 if its in good shape.

    no thanks lol....was just in general section and saw thread on gas prices...made me think lol, $4/gal at pump on road, i have to fill up on water and we all have to use premium....so i'm pretty sure if i don't spend it all on mods i could put it right into the gas tank

    Looks like a good list of mods for the money you spec'ed, Only thing I could se adding in the future would be a Riva grate and homemade OPAS block ups(2" lengths of 3/4" PVC pipe).

    Before you spend money to get speed, why don't you trade for a T?

    I've been toying with trading to a T-x, i'm not sure if the dealer would screw me over on value of the gtx or not, its still in their storage shed but in my name and paid for...haven't talked to them about it really can't decide. I like some of the features of the gtx, and the fact that it would be the only one around here, where theres tons of rxt/p/s, and 3t-x's for sure and at least one p-x...
