    Figure out a mod path. What are your goals? More power? Better handling? Combination of things?

    Downpipe and tuning would be a good start to get more power, so look into Stage 2.

    BOV, skip it.

    I don't know what rimz iz.

    I agree on the bov....just makes silly sound no real use for it unless pushing lots of boost. If more power is ypur voal the DP will make a stage 2 tune possible.......if you just want to hear the boxer rumble than an axle back is fine.

    Im saving up for stage 1 tune then DP so i can do stage two. After comes suspention............so many plans so little money. Lol.

    If you are in upstate ny you might want to look into getting some wheels and snow tires first. Other mods won't matter if you can't get any traction lol.

    Depends on what direction you want to go with it. If speed is what you are going for I would deff start with the basics. Exhaust, Intake, Header but most importantly going fast is nothing if you don't have anything to stop you. (Brembo Brakes a must).
