Default $500 only to prep before a tune at HarmanMotive

What would you spend $500 in preparation before a custom tune? I spend what I have carefully. I'd like to maximize my experience at Harmon.

WRXs' current state:
AP stg.2
Stromung DWG downpipe
Prodrive 3CE
intake snorkle hacked
stock uppipe and axleback (uppipe is going in soon).

The rest of my mods have been in suspension.

My list of items to consider:

TMIC
Turbo Inlet
I/C hoses (Samco, etc.)
Maddad whisper axleback

Advice is appreciated.

THANKS!!

Hey Drew,
You haven't installed the uppipe yet?!? How long has it been? At least you installed the 3CE!

Anyway, I'd definitely get intercooler y-pipe and axle-back. Why not go with Prodrive for both?

Prodrive Axle-back: $339
Prodrive Y-Pipe: $99 or Samco Hose Kit: $125

Hey Kenny!!

I wanted to try the install myself and never found time. I still want to do it so I'm starting to push it to the front of my to do list

Where to get the Prodive Y-Pipe? Prodrive, Evo2, Borla Hush, and the MadDad Whisper are current considerations. NEED the boxer sound but also need it somewhat quiet.

Performance...maintenance stuff has already been done

Glad to hear it. I've had success with Oakos.com. They have good pricing and offer free shipping on many products. Also remember to clean your MAF sensor for accurate readings.
