I'd figure what what your wanting to end up with. I'd do the suspension 1st, springs/dampers/sway bars & a st bbk. Then do your exhaust/intake/tune, ect. Why bounce around? Put it on the c/c or cash it out or save up.....
Ford Racing catback is on the way placed the order yesterday.

I do what i want to my car because I like it. If you dont, well you dont have to drive it. Everyone's tastes are different, and if they weren't, this world would suck lol..

That's something you have to ask yourself. I hated that my car was dam near silent (08 ses auto) so i got my exhaust. Not the one you are talking about, but just the satisfaction of hearing the sound and knowing i installed it, makes it all worth it. Is the $600 or whatever to make your car sound better than it did worth it? I can't say yes cause i'm not you :)
