What should be my next mod?

So far I have a AEM Shorty intake, Voghtland springs, front and rear strut tower bar, and Borla Cat-back.

This is a daily driver and mostly race Solo II.

I was thinking TB or headers.. any other suggestions?

Also what order should I put them on?

Thanks!

Header first, it will give you more torque to come out of corners faster and a higher top speed

i say a underdrive pully, throttle body to inprove your acceleration response then do your headers, etc. that's my opinion

Well it seems to be a toss up between the headers and the TB. I dont want to do the under drive pully because of horror stories I have heard about them killing the engine. I could be wrong. I think I might just get both and be done until cams!!

Header will give more power. Do you want a race, or a shorty? Don't forget to get an aftermarket flex to finish off the exhaust.
