without getting into major mods like a tranny and what not you could do stage 1's a custom chip, intercooler and a 17*HPOP and you would have money left over if you do all the work yourself

You can do allot more with your money without Banks. The only really good product is their intercooler kit. Even with that said it's too much money. Look elsewhere you'll be allot happier.

stay away from Banks. do what 5spd said, stage 1's (rosewood is good) and a custom chip. Tony Wildman is popular for good chips. 17* HPOP is a good idea to support stage 1's. you may still have mony left over after that, if you diy anyway.

Definatly put your own stuff together. Banks tuning is subpar at best, I know I used to run it. The Banks intercooler kit is nice but grossly overpriced, just like all Banks products.
