So you bought the car a month ago, good :yesway:
those wheels, eww :noway:
Tires are up to a owners discretion on what he feels best, also depending on your roads, if it snows a lot etc etc.
Your bumper conversion, definitely up to you, I only like the 03-05 when it is paired with a WW lip kit, by itself id much rather have the 00-02, but that is just me
This is all about personal preference when it comes to those things, but you getting a 03-05 lets me know your not going to get a body kit so for that i also say :yesway: but what I can say is, Get those nasty wheels off :)

Not bad, an '03-'05 front bumper definitely would improve the look since it's red.

why do you want both on? If you get hid you wont need your high beams just make sure you get a good quality hid with a good temperature anything under 8k is best for driving

K&N Cold Air Filter

I added CAI now. After it delivered.. I noticed that the short ram is a bit better than the CAI ram in performance (At least it sounds like it, but physics tell you CAI should have better performance). Someone got specs or feel the same way? This K&N can be turned into a CAI and Short ram. Got a decent price on Amazon.

Short ram, can be turned to a CAI though.


CAI piping extension. I think it feels like it has less performance.


Short ram with the Drycharger that came with my CAI


Different angle of the Short Ram

I saw a few cars with both on at the same time, but I guess the HID would do it
cause it would make it brighter

i likey except wheels

edit: oh and its called CAI (not long ram) meaning cold air intake, you are taking in air away from the engine which means the air is cold and that is better because you are able to get more air through the intake. What you did is make it a short ram, it is taking in the air that the engine is heating it up. Hot air tends to expand so you are getting less air through the intake. So make it a CAI, better for performance.

Ken sells the headlight kit you need to make both low and high beam stay on at the same time. I have his kit on my car.

:agreed:

And you probably don't notice any difference (not that there is any significant difference) because you never reset your ECU after swapping from SRI to CAI, and vice versa.

and intakes dont really add any hp so you wont get any gains anyways :lol: maybe if u tune ur ecu but then again i dont think you can tune a 00-02 ecu right? its just there to look cool and sound good.

ECU

That's a good question. Can the ECU be tuned up on my car? I heard one of my friend's uncle was able to eliminate it completely.

nope im pretty sure that only the 03-05 ecu can but only way you will see gains is if you upgrade the whole exhuast system. so there no point.

i just saw that your from LA...im in pomona:)

wrong you can tune 01-05 ecu's. They have cracked the 00 ecu's but theres no confirmation on success with tuning it
