Up-pipe downpipe, but would be best and safe if you had a tune to go along with it. I would say save up and go stage 2 and see how you like that first.

Stage 2: Up-pipe, Downpipe, Catback Tune.

if your running a stock motor id just go with the snorkus removal. took me about 20-30 mins. hardest part was removing the wheel well cover lol. i have a hydrolic jack and some jack stands so that was cake but the damn wheel well cover was a biznatch. it sounds great and it will make you happy, dont waiste your money on an intake on a stock motor.

I think a better question for this guy would be whats your goals? I mean are you trying to make a 300whp car? or just get a few extra ponies for relatively cheap? I mean give us some goals and we can help you more from the information you've give me so far I would not have the slightest clue what to tell you because I have no idea what your trying to make out of your car.

Oh ok well I'm not looking for 300whp just maybe 270whp or so but I'm happy with the power right now. Just wanted a little more sound, looks, handling, things like that kinda daily driver but something I can take to the trak for fun don't want to invest alot of $$$ and then some ass hits me! you know? just any info you have.
Thanks

Well, Some one recently posted there fp16g set up and they made 271whp so if your looking for that kind gain you probably should be prepared to spend some money, as for cosmetics I would suggest rims tints repainting pending on condition? sti hood scoop i think always looks nice.

Anything above your basic TBE and hopefully some EM for it, will take a turbo upgrade, or at least a P & P of the stocker, injectors, fuel pump and upgraded intercooler, a 3 port BCS is suggested usually also. And of course a tune so the car runs properly. After that a good set of sways and endlinks,nice brake pads, SS lines, better fluid, for handling (along with at least somethign other than stock tires). Looks are all up to the driver and NO ONE else, since you will be the one stuck driving and seeing t eeryday.

I think dumdum is making damn near 270whp on the P&P stocker. Plus other mods...

Thats exactly why I mentioned the P&P stocker. But like Turmic said, check out Dumdums profile, see what he has done. Its a very well rounded nice looking car.
