What to upgrade next???????

hey guys, I have about 500-700 bucks to spend on my car and I can't decide what to Upgrade next. My 06 currently has:

Performance:
cobb accessport running stage 2
Grimmspeed downpipe
perrin Intercooler hoses.

Cosmetic:
Sti interior
Sti spoiler
TSW darkstar rims ( i think. came with car)
Hella supertones

System:
Nice kenwood deck
JL W3 subs
JL 4 channel and mono amp
Alpine type R speakers all around

I was thinking About maybe getting some STI BBS rims or a Cobb Cat-back Exhaust or something else. Im leaning towards a peformance mod and I know that the cat-back is not going to give me much of a HP gain so what else should I go for?

Just wanted to get your guys opinion on where to go next.

I would say go with the exhaust just for the sound or a larger TMIC. I also doubt you'll be able to find those wheels for 5-700. Also, some gauges might be a good idea since you're pushing more boost.. I would say boost and afr or egt.

Forgot to say I also have a boost guage. and the accessport can be any guage I want it to. Last month there was a set of 04 sti BBS rims for 550 OBO on craigslist and I didn't have the money to get them

If you want performance start saving for the needed parts. Injectors, IC, pump, maybe a turbo, and of course the tune. Just because you have the money, doesnt really mean you need to spend it.

Ah I wasn't thinking of used wheels, then yeah I guess you can get them used for that much.

For about that much you could get a VF39 for $300, an STi intercooler, and a Clark Turner e-tune. Might as well put the rest of the missing STi parts on there.
