    Sorry, Engine management is a MUST if you decide to go the upgrade path. A couple of choices are Cobb AP and Hydra, UTEC is also an option but I dont have faith in them ( especially with their track record in customer support ).
    An aftermarket Downpipe is usually 3 inch or 2.5 inch, it will free up more air.
    A 20 G is a larger turbo compared to our teeny weeny snail, an Evo uses an 16 G.
    And with that out of the way, if you are not sure what something is or just wondering what it does - use the search button

    edit ; If I had to do it again, I would have started modding at 10,000 miles and not 10 miles lol.

    Greetings and welcome!

    I would wait at least a bit to mod. Take some time researching what is good and what you really want out of the car.

    The Cobb turboback exhaust with their AccessPORT engine management system is a great choice. I am a bit biased as I have them and could not be happier with the package.

    You defiently have to wait till you have broken in the engine, and maybe wait till 5,000 or 10,000 miles before doing anything else.

    Good first upgrade is exhaust including the downpipe with the optional uppipe.

    Im not a fan of Cobb's exhaust at all but their chip tuner is great for unlocking power without dyno tuning or ECU flashing.

    Of course you always have to worry about what you put on your car if you want to keep your warrenty until it runs out otherwise you might void it.
