visuals,
have some red steeda logos stiched into the side of the 2 front seats most importantly the side that face the door. keep it clean with a small steeda decal on one of the back side windows and one across the top of the front windshield like always. steeda engine cover and some 30% tint like metion in another post. black hood with vents and some sort of black decal along the skirts but nothing to eye catching.

performance,
crack the tuning add a wideband custom fit pod next to or near the turbo gauge to keep them all together. full turboback exhaust with a dual exit 4" round tips to big and it just wont look right. make sure that ingition is doing fantastic to keep that fual burning. do something with the intake. throttle body could most likely use some work. cant forget the short shifter you guys have already mentioned it was in need of it.

handling
of course your rear sway bar, hopefully you will do a front sway bar aswell and a nice coilover setup with a 2" to 2 1/2" drop. some nice 18s im partial to enkie personaly, black with a red lip and red lugs nuts, i love the g-force tires. with that kind of drop a camber kit.

brakes,
with the increase power your gonna need some better breaking inwhich wont be to hard to do. upgrade those brake lines and pads and toss some slotted and drilled rotors on and your done.

concept finale image should show the car as a fun relaible daily driver with a clean sporty look. a hatch that cant be touched by others, a car that has that look of being smooth and gentle but yet has the ability to burn through tires and outrun the competition.
i know a lot of people have done this but with the use of the steeda sway bars and a custom turboback exhaust you will need to finely place some mirrors to show off the handywork of those bars and exhaust.

oh, and smoke those tailights and give those headlights a brow.
