what was your BEST mod?
#1271419 - 07/03/06 06:27 PM

Since there is a worst mod, i thought i post up a best mod thread.


For me it was the Steeda Short Throw, it made my car feel so sporty and fun, definatly worth the 100 bucks i paid for it.

+1 + turbo.

I can see this getting out of hand, so I'll knock it down a notch to keep it attainable by anyone.

Open air intake was probably the most ENJOYABLE mod. The sound really comes alive with that.

The BEST mod was probably painted front oval and mesh grilles all around.

rear STB on the Coug. Love how it handles!

I'd say winter tires for the GL, if you want to call that a mod.
I didn't buy the car for modifying, but damn does she love the slop and snow.

Most enjoyable mod for me, would be my Infinity Basslink + HU. First major upgrade I did to the car, the improvement was immediately noticeable, and I've enjoyed it every day since then.

"Best" mod, would probably be my TSW Revos. Best looking $400 I've spent on this car.

The best mod I have done to the svt was umm.. eveything! I have done to it so far!The SVT is a great car stock but wants you start to mod it,its a driving experince like no other....(short of supercars..haha).I only wish I didn't spend $800 for my borla exhaust(to my defense I wasnt a member on ceg yet so I didn't kno any better) I could have gotten headers and trubendz exhaust for that much .

Nitrous. It makes it so much fun to drive the car.

I love all my other mods very much, but the headers were probably the best out of the rest.

all mods are good... the best mod is continually keeping her in good condition --

overall best mod: TWO mirkos-- which are now both broken, but mirkos just make the front end look so mean

my up-coming best mods are getting her back to normal condition (cd player is broken, antennae is broken, etc.)

then the painted oval and intake

my CTA intake, I got it used at a meet for $70. That thing made my car sound like a porsche, every time I guned the gas pedal people near by would whip their head around to see what was making that beautiful noise... Then they saw that it was a contour, and got confused... Lol, it sounded great and I got redickulious gains out of it, a noticeable difference I could feel all the way up the powerband.

On my '95ATX, as much as I'd like to say it was the BAT suspension, I have to say it was upgrading to the SVT exhaust. I loved the sound of it, even hamstrung by the auto tranny.

On my '97SE, so far it's been wiring the Pioneer with an aux line in so I can get the audio output from my PDA (navigation & music) through my stereo. That has been so useful. But I have an SVT exhaust in my garage waiting to go on this car, so my "best mod" may change soon.

You've got Revos? When I had my car, I had those on there. My brother-in-law inherited them when my car became not mine anymore. He now has them on his Silver frost SVT! They look good!

Top 3:

1. Lightweight wheels. Amazing what unsprung weight does.

2. SHM long tube headers - power throughout the power band - very nice.

3. 3L

If I had to say? Sprucing up the front end with mesh grille, body coloured grill, and 9005s in my 9006 for sexy looking lights while driving at night. Makes me want to ONLY drive at night

Is upgrading to a car with more power a mod?

Certainly feels great to me driving a Taurus every day
