Tthis is what I came up with to start:
- Air Intake: I'm eyeing the JWT Pop Charger w/ Heat Shield.
- A Plenum Spacer. I'm eyeing the Motordyne 5/16" Plenum Spacer and Iso-Thermal Gasket Kit.
- A set of Test pipes. I'm eyeing the APS cat-delete race pipes
- Pulleys. I'm eye the UR Ultra SS Crank Pulley Set.
- Springs. Still reseaching.
- Exterior: I like the Seibon VS-Style Carbon Fiber Front Lip. I know this really doesn't add HP but I like it.

I think with some more research I could find all this stuff for about $1k-$1200. After that I really want to get the Stop Tech Stage 2 brake upgrade kit w/ slotted rotors. I think for about a total of $2k after shipping and installation, i'll do myself but lift time cost $$$, those are a good start.

What do the longer owning owners think?

i personally think it all depends on wether you want to go FI in the future or not...

- Air Intake: I'm eyeing the JWT Pop Charger w/ Heat Shield. (if going FI it will be useless)
- A Plenum Spacer. I'm eyeing the Motordyne 5/16" Plenum Spacer and Iso-Thermal Gasket Kit. ( i personally would prefer an APS tall boy, or SSV manifold if planning to go FI)
- A set of Test pipes. I'm eyeing the APS cat-delete race pipes (excellent choice, if going FI TP is the way to go, and theAPS TP are top notch, you can get resonated TP to avoid the rasp)
- Pulleys. I'm eye the UR Ultra SS Crank Pulley Set. ( :thumbsup: )
- Springs. Still reseaching.
- Exterior: I like the Seibon VS-Style Carbon Fiber Front Lip. I know this really doesn't add HP but I like it.

do high flow cats throw the CEL?
No. Not mine (Crawfords) and not from what I've heard.

I would also research the UR pulley mod. Some people have been known to mess up the internal harmonics of their engines with this mod. Not all, and not many, but the chances are still evident.

I would skp the intake, but most everything else seems alright. For those parts, you shouldn't need a lift at all. EASILY done in your garage on stands.

I have 2004 with test pipes. CEL will not stay off. It is getting annoying.

Do you know the code you are getting? If you tried(and I thought you have) the nonfoulers and they didn't work, I would guess you have a damaged o2 sensor.

I say skip the test pipes and get a full exhaust instead.
