Exhaust or Braces

I can't Choose! New Exhaust or Front n Rear strut tower braces?
Exhaust would be from the down pipe back with a borla muffler
Strut braces would be SPT Front and Rear

i would do sways before i did strut braces.

and well being me i like power just a bit more although suspension mods are fun.

just make sure you get a stage 2 flash when you upgrade to TBE.

another thing to keep in mind it's slightly cheaper with the suspension upgrade.

rollin on 17's now and they're dirty

Strut braces do nothing but add weight and make taking off your TMIC harder.

Ok if I was gonna get sway bars they would be H&R sways and I got a guy that will do my exhaust from the down pipe back for $300 plus the muffler so which way would be the better way to go? I don't have a cobb access port yet but soon

Is it going to be a catback? So mid pipe + axle back? If so, $300 is a lot. I got a custom straight pipe for around $80. Straight piped the mid pipe and then welded it on to the stock axleback.

i'm almost positive you will enjoy the exhaust more. i agree with getting sways before struts especially if this is your DD how often will you be noticing the difference your sways make compared 2 the claims stage 2 makes lol
