Tons of threads on what to do first...but what about after the accessport, tbe, and downpipe?
I also have a bully stage 2 clutch and a streetlite flywheel.
Lol, no silly bov for me...

What do you veterans recommend upgrading next?
Bigger turbo?? Is the VF22 the best choice?? Fuel injectors? What kind?
Any help is appreciated!

Im not sure, i wasn't exactly thinking about the cost. Just what should i be looking at next kinda thing...
Is it worth the money going into some sort of garrett product vs a vf turbo? Theres complete turbo packages for around the 3000 price range...
I'd love to have an increase in horsepower.

Cycle your mods - do a few performance upgrades, some suspension, and brakes. Once you've done all 3, then go back to performance.

Start with the suspension mods (new tires, rims, sways, endlinks, springs/coilovers).

Then decide on the order for:

1) Bigger turbo (including Intercooler, FI, turbo inlet pipe, protune)

2) Upgraded tranny (STi or PPG's)

3) Brake job (anywhere from fluid change and pads to a full up Brembo kit)

Agreed, but don't forget about appearance/accessories./... they make the car so much more enjoyable.

Swaybars..... springs..... wheels..... stereo..... brakes...... tranny......

whatever..... all legitimate upgrades.

I concur with the suspension upgrades, but if you need a quick HP fix get a protune...then start with suspension.

I'd recommend a coke habit and lots of hookers!


If not that, maybe suspension.
^^ Knows from personal experience. :p

Suspension first. You need good shoes to run fast.

Are you still running a catted up pipe? (fill out your profile FTW)

If so, then no question that should be next. If cattless then get a protune. I got 50whp from mine. It was a big deal....:)
