MY GT
I have a 2000 GT Automatic. It's still pretty new so all I have put in is my K & N Air Filter. I am looking to make this car fun. I do not plan on racing. I enjoy the ride and I just want to get it a little faster. I dont have a whole lot of money to put into this but I am willing to save as much as I can. I just need some advice on what to do next. I have been thinking about getting an Intake, headers and a cat back exhaust but I was wondering if I could buy a chip to make my GT like a GTS or are there any advantages to the GT that I can benefit from. Please help with any info.

I wish bro... grin

Just get a CAI, header, and exhaust - that should free up some hp and give you noticeable gains

with the money you spend on I/H/E you can buy the Apex i Power FC from MWR. The power PC will give you way more power than IHE would.

true, but I would think the PowerFC would be more effective combined with the regular bolt-ons - so why not just get i/e/h first and then have the Apexi unit preprogrammed for them

I agree, I would get the power fc last.
