    Would you recommend the SPT exhaust?

    I have the other way around and like it a lot. Turboback is open DP, with regular muffler axleback. Sounds normal, but goes like no tomorrow. Stage 2 tuned.
    You can't have everything - where would you put it?

    This is probably the best advice here. Tightening up everything in your driveline makes your car a completely different beast.

    Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you to their level and beat you with experience.

    That's what is considered a stealthback exhaust. Some might argue that you lose out on some power by choking the 3" DP with a 2.5" catback.

    Shifting is smoother, throttle response is better, everything just feels more solid and less sloppy. If you can deal with the added NVH, bushing and mounts are a better investment IMO.

    Besides what Drews said, bushings aren't too hard to install and can drastically change the way your car feels. Also, they're very cheap compared to most other mods. The only downside is any noise, vibration, or harshness you may experience. Just look up some forum reviews for people's opinions on this, but remember it is still subjective.

    Personally the only "performance" mods I've done thus far are front & rear shifter bushings, a short shifter, differential mount bushing inserts, and subframe bushing inserts. All of them have been well worth my time, money, and effort. You will notice the differences every single time you drive the car!
