Yea, recommend.. that you drive the lude a bit first, get used to the stock feeling.... a few months down the road start changing things... after youve done the research and decided which path to take, some things to start with though are the basic bolt ons, intake header exhaust... however if you decided to turbo the car for instance, youd have to change that setup.. and youve just wasted money! sooo take your time and decide.

I've had my car for about a year and a half and I am so excited that I have finally decided that it's worth the money to work on my car! Thanks to everyone for giving me advice and giving me a heads up on where to start!!!
