There really is not much out there... It is getting better...

Perrin has come out with some impressice numbers... Here is a few places to start:

rallyarmor will have mudflaps and skidplates soon

watch out with blue headlights, you won't get anything but pretty color - you'll actually get decreased luminosity

also be careful with intakes. most of the time you're not doing anything but making noise... intake can actually rob you of up to 20hp, plus with the way our MAF sensor is mounted it can be tricky keeping it from making the check engine light come on.

the stock air box has tons of flow, no reason to replace it.

most people are doing it for the sound.. our car is way too quiet

I totally understand. I even considered it myself. a CAI gets you MAYBE 5HP if you're lucky but LOTS of woosh sound.

however, knowing it can mess up the ECU and will probably take AWAY horsepower unless you get the car re-tuned, it's not worth it. you'll see better results with an after market exhaust.

Accessport !
buy that first and see the difference, after that every new mods you will put on will worth it more since you can tune the car to the new aftermarket part and get optimal performance for what you get

+1 ^^^^^ Engine Management (EM) is a must... I think the AP is the way to go. I should have mine in a couple of days. ;D

wait to have your AP running and see how it goes.... the next step IMO will be the get the exhaust but guess you will have to wait if you dont want to do it in winter

I think that suspension upgrades would be the next noticeable difference. Rallitek is the only one out there with the rear sway bar, there are many different ones for the front, but sway bars and endlinks will make a nice difference in the drive of the car.

I'd recommend a downpipe
Its one of the biggest noticeable upgrades and it won't be that big of a deal in the snow
because most of the pipe sits in the engine bay
