97' commodore ute
Hey i've just bought a 97' model vs commodore ute which at the moment is pretty stock standard but looking to book it into a mechanic in the next couple of weeks. Just wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what to get put in it to increase performance? working on a minimal budget also.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

How much is minimal?

Could be a few $100 to some or a $1000+ to others

What would be the first thing you would get installed? extractors?

Well the first thing I did was put a 2.5" exhaust on from the cat back. I wouldn't worry about doing extractors until you have done that. By the way, I am assuming this is a V6?

1999 vs ute series 3
go full exhuast mate, looking at around a grand. then cold air induction with a decent panel filter, then maybe a tune and you should be pretty happy. and if you wanna spend more look at high ractio roller rocker, new diff gears, plem spacer, lowe manifold spacer. the list goes on man, all depends on what you wanna spend
