, i am asking for opinions on the body kit and mods, so if you will please stay out of my threads unless you have somthing nice to say. it would be greatly appretiated ;D
Personally, I think the body kit is just blingage (the rear bumper does look a lil' better).
I may get the splash guards in the future.

As far as mods go- modifying the ECU is the best bang for the buck, depending on what company you choose, it's anywhere from a 25-50 HP gain and even more in torque. ;D

More computer skillz- but you have to take it to a shop. Some places will allow you to remove your ECU and send it in to them. So when you hear the term "chipping" the car, it's sort of the same thing, but it's really just a software upgrade. Here are some resources for you to check out:

(Revo and some others have a 5 hour demo to go try-before-you-buy the upgrade)
