    intake and exhaust are actually reasonable upgrades on the new ones (intake never was). If you do either, you need a tune. Not want, not "should because it's useless otherwise" - need.

    Also, consider suspension bits - making cars fast around corners can be quite fun too!

    Welcome to the forum. Sways and endlinks are a great first suspension upgrade.

    I hope you picked up the sarcasm in the NOS posts If not, we were kidding.

    Your first mods can be small and simple to make sure you're into the idea of modifying your car.

    A lot of people go for wheels first, but I think it's a large waste of money.

    Personally I'd figure out a goal for your car, and then progress from there. What would you like to improve in your car?

    Don't upgrade the BOV.

    If you're wanting to get a good bump in horsepower over stock, but not be too worried about anything... I'd get a downpipe, and an accessport.

    Welcome.And congrats on the purchase.Check out the mods thread in my sig to get some ideas.

    Forget about the BOV.If you are looking for the sound ,then a Cobb SF intake will do the job.

    Before any mods, i would say take your car to the local road track and drive it like it should be driven. From there, judge what you think will enhance the ride and driving experience. After a quick google search: Bremerton Motorsports Park ... TADA! this should be worth more than exhaust or intake!
