    Welcome! You should seriously consider getting some form of Tune for your current mods. As Chris suggested, replacing the uppipe is a very smart choice. HIDs in the stock halogen seating are unsafe and illegal (as they are not approved by DOT) -- just a warning. Other than that, enjoy your new Suby!

    Oh, BTW, the stock intercooler is silver

    I definitely wanna do everything I can performance wise.. While keeping the CELS at bay.. lol. Probably will buy what bolt-ons I can for now.. and move on to internals, bigger turbo or boost controller.. and tuning software.

    Tuning software needs to come first. Consider picking up a Tactrix OpenPort 2.0 Cable and Romraider software.
