As for you Kyle...

Intake
I would suggest the new Injen (most hp gain from an intake so far on a dyno at +12)

Exhaust
2 options
1. get a new muffler which might relieve a little back pressure and sound a little cooler - eisenmann and remus are both nice but pricey
2. what we here call a "muffler delete" where you have a custom straight pipe and tips put on instead of a muffler. Its totally legal, doesn't pollute more than stock since you still have a cat. converter, and sounds very "racey" without being too "ricey". you can expect to pay much less than a performance muffler for this-like $200-$300 bucks installed.

I did the delete and i'm leased too, all you gotta do is weld the muffler back on before you turn it in... not a big deal, a $40 job at any midas or car-x.

you can also do headers but I don't know much about that.

other things to consider doing for performance

-short shift kit and cdv removal for smoother/faster shifts (if you have a 6spd)
-rpi scoops or swoop scoops to force more air into the intake... it actually added about +5hp on a dyno and really improves throttle response.
-Coilovers or springs/shocks for both a lowered look and better handling
-front/rear swaybars for handling (had this on my Acura and made a WORLD of difference in the corners)
-strut tower for improved stability in keeping both sides of the car connected.

(you can use to find more info on any one of these things)

Jlevi, **********s, Bavauto.com, Europeanautosource.com, Supreame Power and BavarianX all will take care of you if you contact them, they have all be very helpful to me personally and most of the members on here (sorry if I left any vendors out... only going on who I've done business with)

feel free to PM me if you have any q's too... I don't claim to know everything but what I do know I'd be happy to share with you.
