What to do next?

So far my 9-3 has an Intake, Saabsport exhaust, HKS BOV, and a Godpseed FMIC waiting to be installed I was wondering what I should do next?

I'd go:

1. T5 suite
2. down-pipe
3. intercooler

Hopefully all at once.

Get the ic installed, drive the tar out of it a bit.

Suspension and brakes and tires.

I personally think you should install the IC and then chime on the forum for the next upgrade.

yes, do it.

I'm talking with Mike D right now about him making me a Downpipe, IC installation, and T5 Suite tuning.

I'd love to buy the Koni kit, but can't afford it, so I guess I could start small with the rear- ARB.

That's the key question.

A ton of suspension and braking mods won't matter much if all you want to do is go fast in a straight line. Thicker ARB and maybe some springs and call it a day. That money can be spent on power.

On the flip side...

If you like actually driving the car hard, and intend to do any track days (time trials, HDPE, etc) then you'll want/need every suspension mod under the sun just to improve handling under current power levels. As a minimum, you'll want to improve the brakes with bigger rear calipers and discs, and better pads all around.
