Hi I bought a 2001 vr6. It currently has about 150,000 miles and is my daily. I do live in the cold of Minnesota but it has very little rust as I take it to the wash frequently. I have gotten a new exhaust, it is now 2.5. I did have it straight piped for a while to find it a little too loud haha. So currently during winter it just has a muffler on it. Engine-wise it has nothing done to it. I've read a few things that say chips are a decent idea but I have also heard they suck. It also is on Koni Coilovers, which are probably really old. I'm looking to spice it up for this summer car meets. Give me your thoughts and ideas!
