    What are your goals?? Are you all stock now or what mods do you have?

    Its really all in what you want. If you want your warranty you don't need to do anything. If you just want to get rid of the crappy stock tune for one that is more reliable and alot smoother you can get the Cobb AP and flash a stage 1 yourself. If you want more power add a downpipe and flash stage 2. Your best bet will always be a pro tune and its always fun watching your car on the dyno

    If you plan on doing more mods than most likely those mods are going to need a tune also. So either wait and get what you want to mod then get a street tune or get a acess port or go open source tune so you can tune as the mods come in.

    Yes you got it. Most people do downpipe,intake, catback,intercooler, ebcs,etc. for moar power. If you plan on doing these in stages don't get a pro tune until you have the mods that you are happy with. Try searching more before you decide on what you want.


    In no proticular order of mod list.

    Make sure you upgrade your brakes and suspension at the same time so you actually have a balanced car that can handle the additional power.

    Unless he's tracking or racing, what brake upgrades are needed?
