Default 2002 2.5L OBS power upgrades.

Alright, im looking into putting some power into my 02 OBS. Im looking into getting a SRI (because im ofraid of water lockup from a CAI), and possibly some other things.... Sorry for the list of questions, but i figure this is the place to ask and someone can help!

First, where can i find SRI's? Ive searched the net, but i havent found anything for my model and year. I've gone around to various auto parts stores here, but they all dont carry anything for me either. Im ok with Used or new.

Second, does upgrading headers do anything without other aftermarket parts? Would i need to upgrade my exhaust/CAT system?

Third, should i even bother in investing a forced induction system? I have around 78k miles on my car. Its the best option for power upgrades, but... Im wondering whether i should jsut save money for another car and just do cheapre upgrades.

Thanks for the help!

Everybody rush to answer his question that has been asked and answered a million times before.
Search dip. It will give you many more options, as the people who have discussed this at great length before are unlikely to waste time saying it all again. You will get many more points of view. You also haven't researched CAIs if you rule them out immediately for fear of hydrolock.
