    Fixed. After the DP a catback exhaust isn't going to do much for power. Just make it sound the way you want it to.

    Find a performance shop and they should be able to direct you on if they can tune it for you or if you have to get an Accessport in order to do so. For basic setups, a Cobb Accessport + other modifications that the maps are setup for will help you get in the right direction.

    What is your budget?

    No bov. Simply COBB Accessport and intake. Go on their website. Aem intake is 250.. i think + accessport is 600.. thats 850 + a downpipe is 600 thats under ur 2k mark

    Why are you pushing COBB so hard? It's a last ditch effort if you cant find a local tuner.

    Shop used and you'll find deals. Check on NASIOC in your local forum and ask around for tuners. It's probably your best bet.
