Cold air intake an X pipe and mufflers (but I think the power increase comes from the x pipe )a tune , then if you have the loot american racing headers also underdrive pullys ,I noticed a bump with the CAI alone the tune really woke it up big time is you car an A6 or M6?
I did
Cold air inductions CAI
Spintech cat back

if your on a budget:

Texas Speed header back exhaust - $1650 vs. ARH or Kooks header back exhaust - $2500

SLP intake pipe and drop in air filter - $180 vs. ADM street intake - $500

custom tunes are different, if you can find a local tune for less than $425, do that, otherwise a diablosport predator programmer - $325 and custom tune $100.

simple bolt ons like these for less than $2500 are all you need when on a budget.


also, a short throw shifter: MGW shifter - $300 and gives you much quicker shifts

no idea, it looks like they don't sell them separately, they will probably have problems fitting up to the stock or different catback exhaust.

is your cat-back 3" or 2.5"? i would recommend either ARH short kit which is just the headers and cats to fit stock/catback exhaust or Kooks headers and cats for you. both are roughly the same price.

Consider taking some weight off the car. Remove spare tire, front sway bar, light weight wheels.

Bolt ons, after market exhaust, stock mufflers are heavy
Cold Air intake
Long Tube Headers
