I want to ad some performance parts to my 2006 Pontiac

Customer Question

I want to ad some performance parts to my 2006 Pontiac Solstice. But want the "biggest bang for my buck". Maybe suspension improvements first. It has a GM air intake system already. It's the basic model w/ 5-speed stick. I would like good handling and overall better
performance. Don't need a turbo or supercharger. Thanks *****

hello Bob

exhaust systems are one of the best and most cost effective ways of increasing performance as a good quality catback can often yield 4-5% improvement over the stock system

and as for improved suspension then you need to spend about $1000 a corner to get an aftermarket coilover thats possible to tune to a higher standard than the stock item as you need seperate bump and rebound adjustment and a progressive rate spring to achieve a good quality ride with better body control than standard
