FWD can only handle so much power, especially with all-seasons. I vote suspension.

You really should grab high flow internals asap and an ap and tune. I believe R/T tuning has a deal on a tune and ap

i couldnt agree more...

ive got 1300$ aside now, and im waiting an Over Time pay check next week before i jump on anything...

I need Tires - high priority at the moment...

after that depending on what I go with, im looking at 500-650$ off the bat...

hoping with the pay day im waiting for ill have about 17-1800$ saved up. I may even save up just a little bit more...

just wanna get the best bang for the $$$... alot to think about...

Decided - Tires / COBB AP

then ill save for the fuel internals + rebuild, and a TIP...

atleast if i get the AP now, i can atleast see if I have internals already. also I can use it as a scanner for other parameters before it gets tuned...

once i have it, it will motivate me to put money away for a protune

Just read through your build, good job so far! My next purchase is going to be an AP and internals as well, as soon as my warranty is up.

Glad you decided to keep the car. Surprised you are dropping so much money on it though after wanting to sell it. Regardless, it's going to be pretty stout once your engine is built. The AP is one of the best things you can get for these cars. I am hoping one day Cobb releases an AP for the Juke... Not holding my breath though lol.

i wanted to get something that is a little more practical for my daily needs, but since im stuck with it. I figured instead of just paying it down to sell it would be a waste of money, mine as well spend the money to make it run better, and still put a smile on my face + an AP / Internals I can sell later on if I choose and still get about 70% of my $$$ back...

i cant wait to see what this car will feel like with another 30WHP / 30-40 WTQ + new tires

Its a love hate relationship lol, but everytime i do something to it i fall back in love lol

More details/specifics on the internals?

Also, AP's are the way to go for DD's. I have one myself and I don't regret it.

Im not getting Engine Internals lol...

MS3's / MS6's have a cam driven fuel pump that works fine for mods up till basically ( INTAKE + BPV/BOV + CBE ) once you put a DP on these cars the factory pump leans out really bad, and cant hold sustainable pressure through out the entire rev range with pressure dips = not good...

fuel pressure dips below 1300 = bad

once you install fuel internals the car at its leanest point will only drop down to on average 1600 with full bolt ons = good !

Now ive been risking it for a few months, but the one thing that helps me out just a little bit, is that fact i have a Catted DP...

so basically ill be preventing ( zoom zoom boom ) for the long run, and ill be gaining more PPOOWWAA !!! lol hahaha
