Default Greetings from Tulsa

Hey all, thanks for accepting me here, I have been meaning to join but had been busy with work and life and baby expectancy with the wife! (Excited for end of May!)

Iím from Tulsa, OK, I got a Sonic last year I own a 2016 Sonic, Base model (Manual windows and a basic radio) doesnít have LT, LS, LTZ or anything on the back.

Iím curious on what all I can do Mod wise with her,

Iím planning on tired and rims to start and upgrading the radio to the touch screen and adding subs and a backup cam.


What are options with the BASE model as to intakes, turbo, intercoolers, full exhaust, headlights,



And most importantly is there a wide body body kit for it? Or fender flares? I seen one online floating around that was grey and had a nice wide look to it.

Welcome!
Theres a bunch of things you can do with these cars.
A lot of people start with the basics like intake and exhaust. Sonics with the 1.4 turbo benefit a lot from a engine software tune.

There's a few company's that have suspension upgrades available like springs/coil-overs, anti-sway bars and ungraded end links.

Body parts aren't quite as readily available but are out there.

Check out companies like zzp performance, bad news racing and ddm. Also checkout andyautosports.com for body kits

Can turbo anything. Might not be worth the investment unless you can get parts cheap and are skilled at fabrication. Can get expensive very quickly.
