    Swaybars need to be properly matched to the springs you run. Do you plan on staying with stock springs?

    I agree I'm just saying putting an axleback on doesn't void your WHOLE car warranty, it's part specific but people don't usually know that and it drives me nuts that people just say "it'll void your warranty" and leave it at that when there's waaay more too it. Trying to help, that's all.

    I'm not sure. I might get new springs, just don't like that ill have to replace the struts too. Man that's expensive.

    I went with a PW TMIC and a GS EBCS with a Torqued Performance tune through my AP. The car runs wonderfully - the only remaining item I have to do is a fuel pump. All of this can be done very easily yourself - but keep in mind things can start happening once you get to stage 2+ that you weren't expecting. Stage 2 is (in my opinion) the last stage that is 'reliably simple'.

    However, with how often I personally get into boost (never - it seems my car lives its life in vacuum), I kind of wished I had stayed at stage 2 and put the money into the suspension. A lot of it depends on how you drive - the vast majority of my driving lately has been as a "dad".

    I think a good tune (either E-tune or custom tune) is not wasted money, and gives enough power for a DD.

    front sway bar & endlinks, springs, shifter bushings, steering rack bushings, engine mounts, SS brake/clutch line, brake cylinder brace (not sure if relevant to 2013), fuel pump, injectors, TMIC, upgraded turbo, pro-tune...

    there's a lot of directions you could take here. depends on what you're looking for. I did most of the above and they all make noticable differences (though not as noteworthy as going stage 2).
