    Figure out what you wanna do with the car, and then purchase parts that are going to coincide with your intentions. But whatever you end up doing, I would make sure you got it tuned well by someone reputable.

    i don't think it matters but normally if you buy them from the same place you can get them in a kit and it will save money

    Get all the parts you need, then do all the work. Otherwise, you touch things too many times. Productivity will save you headaches. Shop around. You could find deals on the things you are looking for and save some money if you were to piece it together over a certain amount of time.

    And after the work is done, get it tuned. Shop around for a decent shop or tuner, and make sure that is the number one investment.
