If I Were You I Would Buy The Cobb Access Port. They Are About 700$ And With The Parts Allready On There It Would Make It Stage 2.

You need some type of EM (engine management) or tune if you dont have one. If you get the AP you would still need a tune on top of that as the headers are above the stage 2 map notes for Cobb. What are your goals, plans for the the car? More power, better handlng? I suppose just the exhaust has been the only mods so far.

Search around, there are several popular ones depending on your own ability and the amount of money you want to spend. I personally run the Cobb AP and love it, its a plug and play type. There is also the pensource route which has several good write ups in sticky form in the EM forum. Another popular one is the Utec, its a piggy back, a little more expensive, but can be tuned by yourself or a tuner also. Search around here some, find out which one you like and go from there.
