Personally, I go brakes > tires/suspension > drivetrain, just so I have the tools to fully exploit any power gains (and I prefer handling to speed). But with whats out now for the 2012, the power increase isn't going to overpower the current chassis setup. That being said, if you cruise through the dyno thread, you should get a good idea what kind of gains to expect with that setup, which will be noticable.
I promised my girl I wouldn't alter the suspension because of the canyon runs here in Southern California. So instead, I'll alter the car mildly by doing the usual intake, exhaust, header, tune (when available).

I noticed a good chunk of horsepower gained with the setup. I want the torque mainly. Granted, this isn't a V8 however I still prefer it. Any specific header to go with this? Long or short?
