Best and Worst mods....

Ok guys, what mods have you done that were great and which were not so great? I'm talking performance, bang for buck, ease of installation, cool factor, durability, warranty etc. Let's hear it!


'04 QC, CP3x2, Comp 62/75, 100% Exergy, AD150, 2000's, fancy tranny, Firepunk UDC, ladder bars, M&H drag radials, bunch of gauges, blah, blah
On deck: 62/75 T4 over S480
