    Uppipes; tubing that replaces the restrictive stock piping from the exhaust manifold to turbo, and downpipes; piping that connects the turbo to the rest of the exhaust system, are popular mods to get the most bang for your buck as well.

    Forget about diffusers, water sprays, body kits, BOV's, replacement wings, or rims and tires for now. While thats all nice stuff to have it's not gonna help you get that kick in the pants feeling. If, on the other hand your gonna race at the track regularly, some of these mods you might want put higher on the priority list.

    Howdy and welcome!

    Read the stickies and then when you are done read them again. Great info to be found. I too like many of the Cobb products.
