Usually people that just start out get a Cold Air Intake, and an exhaust. Id recomend AEM cold air intake.

How much cash do you have to throw down on mods?

The first advice I got was CAI, Exhaust System and Header. I'm sure someone else will come along and continue the list.

Forget the CAI and header........get that engine made bullitproof, buy a turbo, and a nice high-flow exhaust, nice set of wheels and tires, and a big brake kit from Brembo all around.

bulletproof means you could concievably run any boost a turbo could put out.

and yeah...if youve got plenty of cash, get a B18C1 (GSR) engine (drop in for your car), get a stroker kit, sleeve it (AEBS sleeves would be best if you could find somewhere to get them), then get aftermarket valvetrain and cams plus a valvejob and porting/polishing of the head then run a big turbo. of course with all of this modification youd have to run a piggyback ECU..or maybe replace the ECU alltogether.

also look for a good catback exhaust, it wont make much of a difference at first, but when you get all that modification done you will be able to feel the difference if you change the exhaust then.
