1. * performance header
2.
performance exhaust
3.
body kit
4.

C.A.I.'s, most of us have the K&N or the Mopar one. Header, DC Sports or Mopar. I think both are made from the same factory. Exhaust, Magnaflow and Mopar makes one. You could have a good muffler shop custom make one for you. Sparkplugs, are what you like the best. They are alot of body kits out there. Ever which one you like and willing to pay, they cost alot of money. If you want to hear and see what a Mopar c.a.i., Mopar header and a Magnaflow exhaust system sounds like click on this link www.youtube.com/davidandchico I have three video's. One is a 0 to 60, one is a 0 to 90 and the otherone is how my Magnaflow exhaust sounds like.

Fuel Pumps??

So I've been looking on some different sites that do after market mod's, and I've read a lot about fuel pumps/injectors giving you some extra umph, is that true, and would it apply with the SXT?

I wouldn't even think about Larger fuel injectors or a higher flow fuel pump until you install a C.A.I., header and an exhaust system. I don't think the Caliber would ever need a higher flow fuel pump, but the thought of higher flow (larger) fuel injectors have crossed my mind. It would be nice to try a one size larger set of fuel injectors to see how they perform. I haven't even checked yet to see if Mopar makes a one size larger fuel injector for our Calibers.

Why would you want to do a ricey thing like put a body kit on a car that already has good lines. It's not an ugly car like a honda and does not need cosmetics to make it look nicer.

Looking nicer and customising for a personal different look are not necessarily the same thing.

Yeah, after I saw the prices on the body kits, the desire went away pretty quick, and you're right, with a little tint, some rain shields, and a few extras, it cleaned up quite nicely.

ps If any one has ever installed a header on their own, I'd love some details. I have a mechanic friend who is willing to help, but I want it done right!
