Congrats on the car, you've come to the right place
I'd like to think that 15-20 hp/tq is going to make a huge improvement but I don't see it. If you have seen 20 hp gains really make a beamer move I'll consider the intake/exhaust/tune. Angel eyes and clears are a definite, but I'm still iffy about the bumper because I'd have to send it to an auto shop/stealership to match paint and installation which I don't want to do. vmr vb3's and h&r springs coming in the spring. Thanks for the input though, I appreciate it.
