    If the '98 has the same cats as the USDM '02+ then definetly get a catless Uppipe and a Turbo Back exhaust.

    Do they make EM for the '98 still? Do us a favor, i know its cool in Australia to get 19" chrome rims, but its just not cool lol. Get 17" aluminum wheels!

    it really depends what system you'll get, some are loud as hell and some not, just search the brands and chose the one that suits the most. IMHO Prodrive makes just something in the middle, performance gains along with nice not too loud of a note. And most of them will make your engine more happy

    If you want something loud go catless and get a straight though canister type muffler.
