Go with the Hotchkis sway bars before the exhaust. You'll enjoy it significantly more, I'm sure.
exhaust and CAI are out, my mods are gonna be following:
- Headers
- 3'' Single pipe
- Remap (i'm gonna give FastBob a Before/After Dyno sheet just to show how beneficial a remap is to our cars )
- Hotchkis sways
- koni's

Go with a g power SC kit good bang for the buck with huge power potential if you wish.

On our cars Id stick with a supercharger. Thats what Im adding to mine.
- F/I will be in the "hopefully not too distant" future, once my car handles like a motha', and of course, save up some $$ since i'd be getting new tires this weekend for around 1200$
