When is a car consider as not a stock car anymore? That is a question that I would like to know! What is the biggest part of modifications that a car would consider a non stock car? Panel of experts please reply =) :) :lol: ;)

Do you mean as far as the stereo in the car or is this a general car question?

When it's anything non-standard really. You can only have a completely stock car when everything is standard. I suppose it depends on how harsh you want to be with deciding what "stock" is

...mmmh..

I'd say when you lose major Stock parts and replace them by aftermarket ones... parts such as: The engine (or its components), the air-fuel intake/exhaust system (pipes, manifold, header, cat), transmission, brakes, suspension. I'd say everything else are just for show or performance... lights, wheels/tires, body-kits, height mods, seats, wings/spoilers, systems, shifters, dashes, gauges, carpets, etc...

Hey maybe the paint job too could be a big NON-STOCK mod!! :lol:

I say you're completely stock even if you've got intake/exhaust and even headers. All those are considered bolt-ons. You've officially "modified" your engine when you've done exactly that: opened up the engine and started doing things like porting/polishing, overbore, etc. I'd like to say my car is "heavily modded" too when I've spent over $1000 on bolt-ons, but officially speaking, I don't think it's modded unless you get waaay down inside.

So you added on 100+ hp with your bolt-ons and N20. Hey, are you stock? "uh...yeah."

So with I/H/E you didn't have to modify anything? :surprised

I think any modification to improve the car's handling, acceleration, or braking would make it a "modded" car. Intake, header, exhaust, lowering springs, etc.. would make it a "modded" car, IMO. But then again, what do I know... :monkey:

Well of course you mod those things (intake/header at least, i heard the stock exhaust is hard to improve on, performance wise). But I don't take these as actual modifications to the engine. They're "bolted-on" to the engine, and as such are mods to the intake/exhaust system. Suspension kits..yeah, I guess those are mods too, but if I had a 100hp NOS kit and someone asked me if I had engine mods..I'd still say.."huh what? nah"

You mokeys. =)

The first thing you change from stock or stock replacement and your car is no longer stock. Period.
