What do you all think. There are so many options that I can't decide.

*edit* It should say $100 not 0

Be pre-emptive and install the cooler. That way, when you start to make 65000 hp, you won't need to worry about the trans dying or overheating...

Just a play on some people's claims that they get mucho Hp out of small mods...like that a CAI will give you 10-15 hp...

I think the sway bar. When I get my new Pratt & Whitney jet engine it will be direct drive- no transmission. And get it right- 65,000 pounds of thrust- not hp. :p

Go with the GE90. It's the engine they use on the 777. It's also the biggest!
127,900 pounds of thrust.
i'd go with the tranny cooler.

very minimal. i fab all the parts myself. even the engine. i find it's much easier to rebuild an engine if you just mold it with play-dough

Just make sure your head isn't anywhere near the intake when you tell somebody to crank it up!

I prefer thinking putty as opposed to play-dough...It has better consistency...

The guy who sells this stuff is one of my co-worker's brothers...he makes a crapload of money off it, and the stuff is great...we have dozens of tins around the office...

I'm saying subframe connectors - they'll bring a smile to your face :D

And, as Ron Porter says it, you won't feel the upgraded swaybars on the street... :)

As for the tranny cooler... The Gen 4's are much better about cooling and tranny reliability - I'd put one in, but since your car is so new, you've go some time IMO. :)

Since the concensus says trans cooler, I ordered it yesterday on ebay. With shipping it was $53. The same cooler at Pep Boys was $73. Hope to install it July 4th weekend along with my exhaust.

Halon Fire Extinguisher

Why? You spent all that time and money on those mods, don't let a stupid fire ruin your car, or a Dry Chemical Fire Extinguisher for that matter.

Safety First, then the Trans Cooler, and mount it where you can get to it quick.

This may not be considered official "mod" until your car is on fire, then it's the best mod you ever made.
