    What to do?

    Hey everyone..I am looking to dive into some engine upgrades. Any suggestions on where to start? I already have a nice BOV, intake (yes i already know the downsides that are possible) and HKS CBE. I dont know what i want to do or what would be the usual next step. I was thinking maybe front-mount kit with maybe a turbo upgrade later..not sure. Any thoughts or insight would b greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

    Before you ask the "community" what you should do with your car, maybe you should know what "you" want out the car yourself...

    Have a goal, then read on how to reach that goal. By stating you want a FMIC and a turbo upgrade later on with engine mods doesn't explain what you're tryin to achieve with the car.
