What to buy!? I can't decide and friends are idiots!!

Which combination should I buy? I can't decide and my parents and friends don't care about cars enough to understand the performance aspect. They think I should get altezza's and a sound system or something. Ok, here's the list of the four things...I have $647.13.

AF/X UDP ($105), FC Throttle Body ($239), Iceman Intake ($199.95), Trubendz 2.5'' exhaust w/ borla tip ($295).

1. AF/X UDP + FC Throttle Body + Iceman Intake = $543.95
2. Iceman Intake + Trubendz 2.5'' exhaust + AF/X UDP = $599.95
3. Focus Central Throttle Body + Trubendz 2.5'' Exhaust + AF/X UDP= $639

Ok, I know this was probably repetitive but what would you choose? I want the most power I can get out of these combinations. Thanks.

save the udp for last as the rest is all related...the throttle body is nice, but it can also be done later...do intake and as much exhaust as possible.

I just bought my iceman intake and the UDP from Newedge. I didn't call them though so I hope I receive it soon and am notified via e-mail about my purchase. Next, tomorrow I will buy the exhaust. Then I'll probably save up for the throttle body and flexpipe.

By the way, has anybody had any problems ordering from Newedge or Trubendz over the internet? I would call them but I am never home during their business hours.

#2 will net you the largest gain in power. The UDP will give the most, then the intake will give the 2nd most, then the exhaust will be 3rd, and the TB is 4th.

I never had any problems ordering from NewEdge. Of course, I live less then an hour away from there so..
I do like viney says. You should work on your intake and exhaust first. Then get the TB later.

Cool, I just got done ordering my Trubendz exhaust system from Trubendz. So now I wait...Anxiously as my items are shipped to me. I can't wait! I'm as excited as a little kid! Next I'll add the flexpipe and throttle body.
