    hey welcome and congrats

    i always recommend ebay exhausts.. i have the erz racing one. its exactly the same as any name brand only its 250 dollars instead of 600-700!

    as far as intakes, theres short ram and cold air.. many different companies make them. i happen to have a turboxs short ram.

    Neither work as good as stock...

    stock intake is best.

    if you want performance get a high flow catted downpipe a catless uppipe and Engine management. If you want noise get an erz exhaust and an intake.

    Just a word to the wise, make sure you get a 3" downpipe. You can flash stage 1 em completely stock, but in order to go stage 2 your going to need the full TBE along with the uppipe.

    was it from a private seller or a dealer? Some people might just tell you to "murder it out". It would be a candidate for it.
