exhaust- regardless of which brand you buy, you will only see a small amount hp gains because our stock ones are very non-restrictive. What I did was put a magnaflow race exhaust on mine for $130 installed.

headers- the one that makes the most hp,pacesetter, are also the cheapest ($190) they make as much as 9 hp.

Intake- you want to buy or make your own cold air intake,these place your conical filters on the outside of your engine compartment taking in cold air. if you leave the conical filter on the vaf, you will loose hp because you are sucking in hot air. The hotshot runs for $140 or you can make your own (like mine) for $50. These will give you as much as 7 whp.

My first mod was my borla catback...no regrets here...I then installed my Hotshot CAI, then testpipe then ACT II clutch then PRD STS. I recently ran a 15.08 @ 93 mph.

If you are planning on going with an exhaust choose borla...you can't go wrong! It looks fairly stock but the sound and perf. is great.
