3.9 upgrades

so i've been lurking around here for a few weeks now and noticed that there are few 3.9l owners here. i've got an 06 gtp manual coupe and seem to have a hard time finding reliable sources for parts.
i'm looking to get an intake as soon as i find one i trust. any suggestions or personal experiences?

CRAB Intake is definitely good. I wanna get the MPD Hood and leaning towards the GT-R exhaust, kinda steep on the price though.

Congrats on your GTP, I have had my 06 GTP w/ six speed manual trans since brand new and have over 104,000 miles on it now and love driving it every day! As for the parts: you can always go custom if you cant find it made for your car. That was what I did for my exhaust and intake, the biggest difference was made from a Tune though. Really brought everything together. I have 265HP at the crank, which means about 225HP to the wheels with my set up.

The crab intake comes with a K&N filter. its just the adapter, the box, and front pipe that lampoon makes.

With my 3.9 I have found its not just the engine modds it's also the suspension, MMI's, and engine damper, that have really helped with the performance and feel of the SS... I beat a TB/SS pretty bad a little while ago. Except for my trans work I am pretty much stock. You should really look into the MMI's (Motor Mount Inserts). Best modd for the money. IMO... Crabs are the next best thing...

Mods...
(93 octane tune)... Ported throttle body by SB Tuning... Blacked out HL's and TL's... CAI for the G6... Custom exhaust and Dyna Max mufflers... Stock Wheel with 225 45 18 Good Year RSA's Repainted Gunmetal Grey also Black Drag 18x8 Extreme alloys Going on this spring... NRG Engine damper... Cquence Drilled/Slotted rotors... Racing Line MMI's... 8,000K HID's upper & Lower... Custom built tranny with bigger stall, shift kit and to much more to list... Soon to have fully rebuilt suspension with Pro Kit...
