Default Advice Needed, Where To Start With Performance Mods

Hey Gang,
So I've pretty much finished up on my mod's on the interior and stereo, now it's time for performance.

Where should I start? I know many of you have countless time and money invested in your machines, if you had to rewind time and start from scratch...in what order and what improvements would you make?

I'm looking for the short list of best bang for the buck improvements.


Everything under the hood is stock currently.

Thanks in advance for any information you can provide.

Cory has a group deal on spacers for $120 and a bop for $5, exhaust could be ebay, greddy, nismo, custom made or whatever you like, intake could be a cheap ebay one, injen, k&n, and etc its alot to choose from of them its what you want to pay for

Agreed,

Chris, for underhood, i say get intake (any brand you please), CXJ BOP and Spacers. As for Exhaust, since you have an 08, be careful, our cars are prone to some serious DRONE, check the exhaust threads, you will see the video's. If you do get an exhaust, you will need a couple of resonator's.

Good luck

Default Re: Advice Needed, where to start with Preformance Mods

So, I'm going to look into Intake first.

Does one stand alone as superior...

I don't usually go the cheap route on anything. If I can't afford it, I'll just wait until I can.(usually cost me twice as much to fix the shitty product I cheaped out on) I try to stay with proven brands. I assume K&N is a safe bet, any first hand accounts from you guys?

Best price I've seen online is $260....recommendations on who to purchase from?

Sorry...I meant Intake...and wrote exhaust....as I corrected it on my post. Found K&N a little cheaper on ebay....$207 shipped. That's what I was wondering if anyone is running...and their experience with it.

Thanks for your insights.

No cold air intake will void a warranty unless the problem to the engine is directly caused by the CAI.

I have a fujita intake and believe I paid close to $150 for it. Next go for the spacers, BOP, headers or precats and exhaust. I have all except for the exhaust and it all makes a big difference.
