Ok. All things being said, I've got some money and time now to spend. Enough for one, single mod. The 3 things I'm looking at are:

1. steeda short throw shifter
2. SCT FocusSports chip (~5-8hp and 5-10 tq, but a better curve across the board, and no low end lag)
3. AEM or other brand intake.

Which should I do? Car is otherwise bone stock.

I will also agree if you only have one upgrade to do now.

I would go with the tune and try to buy a used intake off of someone. Since they won't make a huge gain.

>>>pops head in<<<

If you want to try out the FS/SCT programs, now is the perfect time. Free express shipping if you order online, we'll give you a free extra program ( order RLA6 and get ZED0, for example ) and you can now take advantage of the cool user adjustable features like spark, idle, rev limit, fan activation, tire size adjustment, WOT fuel, etc.

i'd say go with the AEM first, because later on when you get a tune it will definitly complement that, or you can get the tune first from "hypnotic illusions" because he offers 1 year free upgrades when you purchase the xcal2 and within a year if you get the AEM or any other mod you can ask wayne to send you a new tune, plus if when you get new tunes you don't have to send the unit back to the dealer which is a hastle in my positioin because i would have to send to the US and back to Canada. also, i'm not putting FS down or anything it's just that i have tried it so that's why i'm reccommending it. but

also the amount of whp/wtq gained in wayne's tunes were seen as 20wtq at around 3-5 k rpms.
