The hks hi power is badass. You should get the exhaust downpipe and some type of engine management like cobb or utec. You don't need the blitz induction box. perrin intake, and blowoff valve.

Sup Mike welcome and congrats on new car. You will love the 06 trust me best car ive bought.


Turbo back exhaust the one you named is a good brand

EM ( Engine managment) Cobb AP, Utec so on research on this please.

Intake ONLY if you get your car protuned. A protune is your car with a EM (cobb i used) and dyno time with a tuner. He pro tunes your A/F ratios so on. Sorry im short on details but g2 run. Good luck and Ill get back to you soon on this. Any questions feel free to PM me.

You can get something like the SPT intake that won't mess with your AF ratios. Even something like the K&N Typhoon I hear matches well with the car as is. No need to upgrade your uppipe since its already catless. TBE & EM should be done before any other power mods. After that you can go for meth injection or a turbo upgrade.

There is no need for you to do an uppipe. The 06 models don't have a cat in the uppipe.
Get a Turbo back exhaust and some engine management. It will feel like a totally different car.
Hold off on the BOV and Intake. If you look around the site you will see that these mods are not really a good place to start with and are a waste of money unless you need them.
