    Make sure its running perfectly, tuned up and timed correctly with clean injectors, filters, etc. Then do Intake, header, exhaust.. You can do them one at a time so it doesn't hit your wallet all at once.

    The winnaR!

    This will do wonders right off the bat. Is this a daily driver for you? You can always gut it out. Shave a few pounds here and there and it will improve things a helluva lot.

    with $600 at a time you can start by doing a simple tune up making sure everythings working properly and then checking other systems like the suspension/brakes so you can put the other mods to good use cause your suspension has to put the power to the ground. id then start with a better flowing exhaust , and as part of the exhaust a better flowing header , and then intake but the intake wont do to much just gives you a bit of a growl , theres always shedding some weight if wanted you can take out the spare tire and the jack in the trunk and if you have a after market intake take the air box out from inside the front bumper to save some weight can always take out the a/c but most people would perfer that luxury with the summer coming i took mine out cause it didnt work anyways but this is just a little start for what you can do. the header you can get a good one i got megan racing header for about 180 shipped which is decent maybe a little more then some and exhaust you can buy a whole system for about 300 to $400 for a good one or you can always go to a shop and have them custom make one for you as well for a little less then the other ones. intake you can choose from a cold air or short ram and i dont think it makes much of a differance which company you go with but i havent had every type and i have always had a short ram cause i know so many people that have suck water into there engine from the cold air intake but they also never payed attention to what thety were driving over.
