We need to know what you want to do with the car overall. A TBE and a tune should keep you pretty happy powerwise.

Stage 2 and a tune ->sways and endlinks -> better tires -> ALK -> better alignment

Then look into getting the TBE and a tune for starters. Then go for some good sways and endlinks. Then after that its a turbo and supporting mods pretty much.

Since you asked for a path, here's a thread that will help you better understand what's going on under the hood and help you determine what you might like to approach as your next mod. Hope it helps.

srninjastar: What did you do all these years before you became a offical member? Just messing with you. But, if your $80 borla exhaust isn't more than a muffler. The upgrade the DP and whatever else isn't changed out. Don't forget to tune it after your done upgrading the exhaust for a full TBE. Then, where you want to go from there is up to you.

As long as your doing injectors, you might as well do the TGV deletes.

Why a divrced wastegate designed DP?? There isnt even really a true one out there. Which brand are you looking at for that?
