^ indeed. What's your budget look like? Lot's to do man, lot's to do. Where do you want to begin?

My suggestion:
1. better brake pads & SS lines
2. tires.....don't be a cheap ass
3. springs (unless you're rolling. then get coilovers)
4. sway bars
5. drop links end links
6. shifter bushings
7.short shifter
8. stiffer engine/tranny mounts (JUST did this to my car. I REALLY like the difference they make just for $200.

the list goes on.


P.S.> fill out your profile so we know what you're working with there. You won't have to repeat yourself as much either.

If you don't have engine management, then please stop what you are doing and get it. It will make a world of difference!

you have an 02, you don't NEED EM but it's a good idea. Ditch the intake if you're not tuned for it.

Posts 5-8 are all 100% correct, that should be your first choice. A pro-tune will be by far the best bang for the buck, and an uppipe will compliment ANYTHING you do. Good luck

Handling mods should be at the top of your list.

Tune the suspension and get better braking because more power can get away from you
in a hurry. Learn the handling characteristics of your car and learn to control it. Then
hit the power mods. You will have a much greater appreciation for your car after that.

I was gonna say engine management, but i guess that'd be a little redundant! lol.
