Yea, get the upgrade path thing going... because you definitely said TWO things TWICE. Only because you lack knowledge about your car. DO maintenance first, then do free mods, then do the upgrade path. Then you will be farther than i am. Ignorance gets you nowhere.

So just read up, search the classifieds and your good. Good luck bud.

1. Maintence
2. Boost Gauge, Wideband, DSM Link with 2g Eprom ECU
3. Build internals out (cams, rods, pistons, etc.)
4. FUEL System (bigger fuel pump, Bigger injectors, Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator)
5. 16g, Blow Off Valve, Front Mount InterCooler, Intake, Exhaust.

Read Read Read, and excel. Nothing bad ever came from knowing too much.

I would make sure the car is running good first, then start with your basic performance upgrades.

Then go on to the next upgrade path. And we do not have headers.

Wow. For the second time we do not have headers. Do me a favor, and do some research on here for yourself, and see what you want out of your car. Nobody can give you an answer, as everyone will have their own opinion. Once you set your goals, then look at the different options for the parts you have listed, and see which one best suits you.

Before i start My name is Eric lol



What the guy is saying is we have exhaust manifolds not headers.



I just started to tune and the thing I wish I had done first after maintenance of coarse was a boost leak test, so you may want to check that out as |I’m sure you’ll have a leak on your throttle body seals for one.

This has been covered so many times.

Do maintenance first, then do research on the upgrade paths (as posted). You'll need to do those before you upgrade your turbo and manifolds. And you won't need cams for a while.
