If you're trying to stock pile, why not just go straight to stage 3? I regret doing stage 2 and then stage 3. Just go straight for stage 3.

1. Don't listen to post 2's advice as that person has not taken the proper amount of lithium today.
2. Read http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...hreadid=533787 fully.
3. Find a tuner in your area like this asshat http://www.getadomtune.com/ and open a line of dialogue with him.

Install what you have and get it tuned. Then drive it and see what YOU think it needs.

- turbo inlet hose
- 3-port ebcs
- good uel header
- k&n drop in filter
- TGV delete

install your up-pipe and down pipe, get a tactrix cable, download open ecu and flash a matching compatible tune and you'll be at a good stage 2 level

GS ebcs.... turbo timer is a waste of $$$; no performance benefit (hp or tq)

Nice starter list but why not skip uel and just get a turbo? Vf or one of the 16, 18 or 20g snails with fueling and call it a day

I would throw those parts on with a tune, see how you like it and go from there. Unless you live in eastern OR or WA, you probably don't see to many straight, flat roads. Look into suspension & trans stuff.

Before you dump coin into more power, make sure you have done maintenance. You can get your car to run a lot better just taking care of the million little bitty things that NEED to be replaced on an 02. There are bushings galore that won't hurt the pocketbook like a stage 3 setup but will tighten your ride very well.
