How far is too far?

How far is too far in regards to mods? Ive done a cai and a super chip so far. Prolly putting a throttle body on next. But i dont wanna start doing anything thatl blow the motor or anything. Like supercharging would probably be one of those bad ideas!?!? Just wanted to get some imput before i do something stupid haha

The moment you did your first oil change you went too far, man


There's no too far. It's whatever you want. If you can afford a supercharger get one.

if a super charger would just blow the motor why would they sell them? every company making superchargers would be getting sued like crazy

yeah man basically you will never be finished. sometimes I wish I would be so it wouldnt bother me anymore, but thats just the world we live in lol. and honestly even if you ever get done with a so called project, what do you do, exactly you move on to anohter one. Its a never ending cycle and once you start it doesnt stop, sometimes I wonder if it would be better to be someone that isn't into the hobby, but I figure id just spend the money on something else. so make a plan and try and stick to it, and when your done move onto something else. thats all i the advice I can give man.
