    Anything other than the stock intake is really just a noisemaker. I've read that the stock intake on these cars is good for up to 400hp.

    You can see the torque curve is much steeper and smoother. This translates to more low-end grunt and much smoother acceleration. You might notice a bit better fuel economy as well, but your mileage will vary depending on location and driving style.
    I lose at least 1 MPG every fill up... boost became even more addicting =(

    As a first mod, there are better bang for you buck ways to go (Downpipe and a tune) but an intake with a downpipe and a protune isn't a bad path to start.

    So what would you guys recommend for the first tune? What I mean is the best path with least vested?

    Stage 1 tune witout adding any parts is the most cost efficient, I did that. If I were to do it again, with my goal in mind, (which might be different than yours), I would do a downpipe and stage 2 tune, then work on suspension.

    but without a tune any engine mods are useless. So cobb AP or tactix or rom raider to get you started then say catback or down pipe/turbo back.

    Just to add...the stock catback is also good to 400 whp. So its basically a noise maker mod like the intake. Nothing wrong with that though

    Yes. I would skip the accessPORT and go the protune route. If you wanted, after that purchase a tactrix cable and romraider for logging. Do the downpipe first if cost is a factor, than a cat back later on, no retuning is necessary with a cat back

    Either route can lead to warranty work being denied. If you are worried about your warranty, I would stay away from engine mods.

    Skip the pro-tune. Its only Stage 1. Even basic Stage 2 doesn't warrant a pro-tune. Get a Torqued Performance tune. Eric will read your logs and adjust appropriately. The best $85 you'll spend on your car. Period
