Alright, I have a 2005 Impala and I am looking to throw some more power into it. It has a flowmaster exhaust, cool air intake, and bosch platinum 4 spark plugs...and thats about it. I was wanting some suggestions about what I should throw in it next.:smile:

i would go with some pem's,a downpipe/high flowcat/u-bend delete,and i would throw on a hvtb,also an hv3 insert,a 180*,and a good tune!!! i might go with autolite spark plugs i think them r the ones they recomend.

unless he goes boost, theres no real reason to switch form the stock delco plugs/wires, they are more than enough to run a N/A car.
X2 on the DP/Exh/Possibly a front power log from ZZP+ a PEM for the rear manifold. HVIII is a great mod for N/A, depending on skill level you could always port your own TB (save some $). after that you're looking at valvetrain upgrade (depending on far you want to take it) with either 1.9RR or a cam.
If you decide you want to cam it, LMK, I have a ZZP GT1 Cam I'd let go for~$200 (300+ship new) >10k on it.
Once you start modding get a tune (getoverkilled.ca does a great job)

Now that we've given you some food for thought, keep us up to date ;)

hahaha. With that engine, could possibly be a Dixie Chopper :p, just yanking your chain Detroit lol.

I want a right wheel drive car too, but my father wouldnt let me due to our terrible NW Ohio winter conditions. I said i"d just throw some sandbags or something in the trunk to get more lockup. but nonetheless, i take what i can get.
