Default New Car Upgrade Help

I recently bought a 2005 LX, already put an Injen intake in their (mostly noticed a 60 degree engine temp drop). I'm not a racer, more of the inspired driver after work. Wondering what to add next? Headers, Cat Back, short throw shifter? Found the Kamikaze headers at a reasonable price along with their XXX muffler but don't know if they are any good, any help? Thanks

ok, haven't heard of them before so I was looking for help. I'll take a look somewhere else. So headers should be my next move, then exhaust?

i personally like to do work all at once, so all my parts have the same wear. less complecations in the long run. but if u wanna go stepp by step, id go exhaust then header then intake mani ect.. that should get u started. good brands are greddy, hks, skunk 2, injen.. ect...

That makes sense. So I would do better (for main. & wear stand point) to wait a couple more weeks until I can get the headers, pipes, cat, and exhaust all at one time? Sould all parts be same name or does it matter?
