Talking Whats next???

OK so Thursday I'm going to Bren Tuning to get my grimmspeed 3 port installed and a protune. I'm very excited to get a custom tune. I think it'll be much better than my OTS cobb map. I like the stage 2 + SF map but I want a better custom tune. So here are my mods so far:
Invidia cattless divorced DP
Invidia Q300 cbe
Cobb intake +airbox
GFB hybrid BOV
GrimmSpeed 3 port EBCS (to be installed)

So obviously I have the bug and want to keep moding but not sure where to go next. I'm thinking either a new TMIC or fuel components.

Suggestions? Thoughts? Thank you

Would you consider suspension, brake, or shifter mods next? Don't wanna defer you from what you want, but you're gonna be around 320-330whp after Thursday. With that kinda power you're gonna be needing those things ASAP! Just a thought...

I would agree, especially if you plan on tracking it.
Although I'm one for breaking the rules
I personally would do a larger TMIC than go fuel after I hit the suspension.

Yea some suspension work would be cool. I just don't really wanna drop it more than an inch ### eventually I know ill scrap something. I could do the adjustable coilovers. Expensive tho. I did put the STI wheels on with spacers and I have a shift knob and turbo gauge. Come Thursday if I'm really satisfied with the tune and the power maybe ill hold off on more performance mods. Thanks for the ideas.

I'm thinking short throw shifter. And then brake and suspension upgrades down the road. Only had the car 4 months so I don't need to do everything right away haha. Hard not too tho

I feel your pain there! It's hard to control myself from using the CC for the Super Shifter set I desperately want and need. Good next mod though as I too believe it should be your next without a doubt!

And I came from a heavily modded 350z which made me NEED more power when I first got my Rex. After the stage 2 mods I'm very happy! I too used Bren btw.

Suspension and brakes should be next. You don't need coilovers unless you track the car in a competitive basis.

It's worth mentioning that spacers are bad for handling and long term reliability. I'm assuming you're running adapter spacers, which tend to be huge.

Yea the spacers r big. They came on the car n look good so I kept em on. It'll prob make me need new wheel bearings early but whatever. If I do suspension work it'll prob just b lowering springs since its a daily driver n don't need to b taking ridiculous turns. How did u like ## tune from Bren? I've heard nothing but great things n had a buddy time his BMW there. Got a lot more power than the AP

I love the gains I got from his tune! The power curve is perfect and a VAST improvement over stock! I just took my car on a 300 mile Mountain Run too and I'm very impressed. The Rex performed beyond my expectations and I couldn't be happier with my Rex purchase now. Gotta admit I was pretty dissatisfied at first with no mods or tune lol!
