Just picked up a 2004 Turbo Baja. Dark Blue. Loaded. 13000 miles.
Now I have to sell the children and wife so I can buy mods.
Where to begin?

Where do I begin for cheap mods to get a few extra hp? Flashing the ECU is going to be last on the list. Should I start with a cold air intake?

Since I'm kinda a noob to the whole thing also, let a noob break it to you. Unless your going to go balls to the wall with mods (bigger turbo, intercooler, headers, catback, reflash etc.......) Stay away from a CAI on a turbo. I bet you there will be a million posts telling you to do a search. On a N/A car its a good start, but not with a turbo. Start with the small stuff that won't void the warrenty.

I was thinking up pipe, TBE and lightened pullys. Can I do these without reflashing the ECU?

cheap mod if done with a lot of common sense = boost controller and boost guage. 80bucks +

Fun mod and always my favorite = shiny, rumbly, catback. 300-800bucks.

K&N drop-in 50bucks, not much results though.

Tint the front windows.

I like the looks of the legacy grill mod.
