Cold Air Intake system replaces your factory intake system you can find more info on them here (http://www.burtmanindustries.com/zoomprod.php?id=arm_injen_pwrflo). Catback exhaust is a after market exhaust system, both of these items will increase horsepower and torque, another idea is to get a 2 degree timeing advance.

Then you have to promise not to be racing in the neighbourhood.

no problem me either, untill a year ago i still had my old camry from high school which was really slow so I'm just getting into this stuff now that I have a armada. Another place where they talk about a lot of preformance mods is club titan (www.clubtitan.org) most of the mods that are availible for a titan are compatible for the armada also because they have the same engine you should check it out some time.

OK, I have messed with engines and stuff a little bit but not car engines. I rebuilt my 4 wheeler and racing engines a few times but thats it. And im not gonna race in the neighbor hood thats just stupid. Little kids run around not to mention dogs and stuff i dont want to have to live with hitting a little kid. And if i do decide to race ill just go to the drag strip like my dad did its not that far away.

Read this thread, it's very informative about the exhaust findings of shailey. Jetblack82 posted the link to the CT, where you can find a lot of performance info.,

Let start with the basic intake, exhaust, maybe some headers. Timing advance is nice but if you can, go with ECU tuning, (www.uprev.com). Hopefully Stillen will release the VK Pro soon. Now if money don't matter, get the SC.

to have real power you need to get the all combo ( stillen S/C + stillen long tube headers + Exhaust system with catback + CAI + ECU tuning),,, that what you call real power. Now i have all except the stillen S/C and the ECU tuning.

Yeah How much of a Horsepower and Torque (if thats how u spell it) gain did you get doing all that?

Just do you guys know, I can get any Stillen item. I can beat thier site prices, but only by a little. A little is better than nothing though.

I have made quite a few modifications to the vehicle. I gutted it and installed new speakers, amps Sub Woofer system. Now I want to move onto more ambitious projects and this weekend I installed the weapon r cold air intak which promises an uptick in performance and makes the engine roar a bit more.

There's a lot of other intake choice you can go with beside the Weapon R. A Titan member did a review on the Weapon R and it was not very good.:D
