    Are you looking for power, feel, handling, aesthetics, etc.?

    I've already got the intake new Cobb map has a program for it, It also has a launch control and flat foot shift attached in the map. Idk I have to drive the car in the car in the winter in MN so I want something that is dependable that's why I've only done the stage 2 kinda nervous about going any higher. I was thinking maybe a little cosmetic but then I want it to hold up in the winter. Second thing is suspension and brakes.... But idk lol

    Aesthetics: tint, mudflaps
    Suspension: Sways/endlinks, custom alignment, summer/winter tires
    Brakes: pads, lines, fluid, master cylinder brace

    I've already got mudflap rally armor and I don't want tint because cops around here pull you over non stop and hassle u with it. So it's settled then sway bars and end links it is

    For endlinks, people either have Kartboy or wish they did.

    Sways is up to you. Hollow/solid. Whiteline makes a solid product. I prefer setups that have a slightly larger bar up front.

    Since you're looking for handling, my advice is to hold off on purchasing anything until spring. Hit up some local Auto-X events and make friends with other drivers; go on ride-alongs for their runs. See how their car handles per their mods.

    Do you understand what sways/endlinks do for you?

    Yeah exactly. You need to start with your budget first of all, and then your goals. You gave some rough goals, but still didn't list a budget. More specific goals would help too. Are you ever planning to autox or track the car? How important is comfort and maintaining the existing ride quality?
