The question everyone likes, what mods ?

I just bought an all stock 140k 96 V6 Auto to drive to work. I was thinking 3.73's but didn't really know what else was good on the 3.8's. I would like to do stuff that up's the mileage at the same time. Thanks in advance for any suggestions

How bad are 3.73's and what dual exhaust is good w/o sounding "ricey" ? The 96 V6 car should have a 7.5 shouldn't it ?

Gas mileage and performance do not mix well.

Typical 97 vert with 8-point roll bar.

yes the 96 has a 7.5 with 2.73 gears.if u went with 3.45gears u will feel a big difference since 99 have 3.23 gears the 3.73 will feel how ur 3.45 would feel. honestly when i was without a blower i might of lost 2mpg on highway.

as for a dual exhuast ,id get a gt catback from 94-98(u can use 99+ just (no cobra)then its on preference i love my flowmasters but i hear spintechs sound better even at high rpms.

CAI, Magnaflow Y-pipe Dual exhaust and excellent bang-for-the buck with an SCT flash tuner.

Cheers!

if you have an auto go 4.10's you wont be dissappointed.

ususally first is

4.10.s- exhaust

After that to make any real perfomnace gains you need a power adder
Super charger/turbo charger/Nitrous
