yes get Stage 1... and no only PCM and yes just buy it new from modernperformance.. then set ur WGA to hold about 15-16lbs @ redline max

ok now i'm gonna get even more noobish....remember i'm banned from srtforums and cannot search for shit...what is the best combo of mods to start off with...i know srt-4 mods work well in certain combinations....flame me then answer the damn question...please :D

affordability is key cuz i'm poor....so i'm thinking... K&N CAI, AGP WGA, Stage 1 PCM and Mopar STS...sound good?...maybe some wires and plugs

This is what you do..

1. Stage 1 - ($340 or something whatever Modern is selling it for)
2. AGP WGA - (150 bucks new.. maybe 120 used)
3. MBC for that 18psi spike ;) - (30 - 50 bucks used.. and not much more new)
4. Get a 3" CAI.. the K&N is cheap cuz it just makes noise and has a skinny POS tube of an intake.. i know i have it lol ( you will need a 3" intake if you ever upgrade ur turbo anyways and will have to throw out that crappy K&N)
5. Any 3" Turboback.. or could always go open downpipe but i know the openers warp I paid about 370 for my Needswings w/ opener shipped
6. Plugs and wires from MSD and NGK with a lil colder gap will help..upping the boost might foul ur stock crappy plugs.
7. Canning your Stock Surge valve might also be wise.. with the higher boost it could leak and cause probs.. You can get a good set of Hardpipes and BOV for around the 200-250 range

If I were you Id go with the Stage 1, Exhaust, AGP WGA and plugs and wires to start it off.. set the wga to like 16lbs, you will haul ass

Overall cost = about 1300 bucks id say..

You will be trapping about 105-106 and run low 13s with a good launch :beerchug:

DIDNT YOU READ UP ON THIS SHIT?! should have spent more time in the performance mods section than War Stories asshole lol

As stated by the others, the best and most effective mods to do first on ur ride would be stg 1, wga, bc and tbe. Of course, you COULD put all these together and go straight to stg 2 w/ toys but its up to you. It depends on what your goals are.

stg 1 ($345) AGP wga ($165) mbc ($75) or ebc ($275-325) 3" tbe would avg you about $500-700 depending on where u purchase from. Dred suggested buying used. In my best opinion, unless your REALLY scraping for cash and need these parts right now dont do it. Always purchase mods new. But thats me.

Remember, we have vendors that can help you out. Exhaust Depot is running a sale on 3" single tip exhausts and Ultimate Collision is running a specail on Injen exhausts and d/p's.

PTP WGA $99, PTP MBC (with hose kit) $49, MSD wires, NGK plugs (4306), then I would recommend MM inserts and some sort of exhaust (turbo back) anything after this you will need more $$$ for the mods like big FMIC, fuel controller, wideband, ect, ect, so keep it simple for now untill you have the $$$ to do bigger and better things.

LOL yeah Im poor so i bought a few used parts such as Stage 1 and AGP WGA..but the wga was used for 2 weeks and stage 1 doesnt really GO BAD unless you break it purposely.. either way nothing on my car looks ghetto or cheap besides my dented fender lol :(

PS. Oh yeah I almost forgot about motor mounts lol.. with that much power you will wheel hop your car apart

1. AGPs are great..however you might need help on the install
2. Sci Fi's are also great from what i hear and install is a bit easier

CAI isnt very necessary until you go BIG TURBO..but its cool to have the crazy spool up sound.. and you might see 5hp from it.. MBC is great.. i love seeing my boost gauge spike 18lbs..

Nothing says "Performance" quite like some nice ass lights...LOL
THIS IS TRUE..

Turboknee, i dont think you are gonna be making anywhere near 400hp anytime soon so you dont really have to worry about an intake if you dont wanna.. BUT, you can buy it for looks/sound/5hp gains like i said, then when the big turbo comes its there..
