Everybody makes mistakes... But it's how you handle them that counts. Check out this post, and let me know if you've ever made a mod that you took, or would take back!

None yet. Every mod I have done so far, I thought about it for 6 months before making it happen.

Flowmasters were the only mistake I've made. Fixed it with npp's.

1. B&B Bullets, replaced with Z06 bi-mode and NPP-in-a-box
2. Vendor sound insulation kit (cost of kit was nothing, cost of installation was enormous). I have a convertible, WTF was I thinking.. it made about as much difference as snake oil would have.
3. Going with the boost a pump included in my A&A kit, instead of going with a full return style fuel system and meth injection. Wish I had done those to begin with.

The only mod I regret would not be the mod itself but the order that I did them. I bought the O.Z. wheels and then a year later decided to do the wide butt (full conversion will be done over the winter). So I guess I wish I would have thought it out better and bought wheels AFTER the conversion.

B & B Bullets. Loved the "music" but the drone after a long trip was unbearable. Went back to stock.

Not Yet! BB Fusion is perfect. Only thing I am nervous about is lowering the car in NJ, I would want to drop a little lower then the stock bults to have wheel sit about 1/2 form fender. TOO LOW???

Mods I have regretted:

CAI (won't say which since it will turn thread bad and get it locked)
Muffler Mod (my car is a Z06)

Don't get me started on my C5 days..
Granatelli MAF
Hood seal

The list goes on
