I have the tsudo catback exhaust and no matter how I hang it, even replacing the hangers, it still sits pretty low with stock ride height. So if I do decide to do suspension work I wont be able to lower it much, I am from southern Pa and the roads out this way are not very low car friendly. I am not looking to spend a fortune on like ksport ones I don't need to get the highest quality available just something that will make the ride more fun and not horribly uncomfortable since its a dd and already has racing seats in it. I also was thinking about just going the strut route and not lowering it, not sure yet. so as far as suspension any suggestions?

I know its a n/a tune and wont do a whole lot, but I was wanting a 2 step really bad.

Does anyone offer a tuner for our cars that has 2 step capability? I am pretty sure that a accessport does but if anyone knows any others that are cheaper Id much appreciate it.

Does anyone know if a tactrix cable has 2 step capabilities?

I apologize I know these questions had to be answered before I just am hopping on here real quick while at work and don't have time to read through all 584 pages on this thread.

If anyone can help me out I would appreciate it.
Do you know what 2-stepping is...?

Retard the engine timing and max out the fuel pump so the combustion cycle is happening in the turbo, terrible for your turbo but we don't have one anyways....
