    Put a Turbo-back exhaust and then get a Cobb AcessPort to change the maps on the cpu. That your looking to get like +30-40 whp or so, depends on the tuner and how he tunes it.

    The cobb ap is a simple and easy to use device, that can remap you cars ecu to different maps, depending on what mods you have done to your car. If you get a downpipe, and an up pipe. You can flash to stage 2, which is 225whp i think. A cat back is optional. The ap also reads back to you live data from your car, reads and clears check engine lights, and more. www.cobbtuning.com has more info on it. I plan on doing this withen the next month, with also getting the cobb catback, it looks stock but it still has a nice tone. As far as wheels, i am looking at rota torques. They are affordable and look great. check out www.oakos.com for wheels and other parts you may need.
