Another great first mod would be new tires. The stock Kumho's are junk. Wet, dry, snow, they are loud and dont grip well.
Id also suggest getting into the habit of cleaning and treating the pleather seats on a regular basis.
Get the rigid collars, engine mounts, or replacement bushings, strut brace, rear torsion bar. I believe in getting the suspension dialed, then go after the power.
2014 Ultra Black R spec.
Oklahoma VSport United
DIY- 2 minute intake, BPV to BOV
Uniq- front strut tower bar
Turbosocks- Rigid collars, resonator delete pipe, Turbo Tech upper, and lower engine mounts, Oil catch can, magnetic oil plug, Beast mode 3.5" intake with carbon fiber box.
Pierce motorsports- Rear torsion bar, upper rear strut bar.
My suspension is this:
PMS Rear Torsion bar
PMS Lower 2pt Tie bar
PMS Race Version Strut bar
PMS Front Sway bar
TurboSocks Rigid collars
PMS Rollcage (Adds stiffness to the chassis and does make a difference in the way the car feels)
PMS Rear Camber/Toe kit (does help the suspension set up work to its fullest)
Professionally measured alignment and corner balanced by a race alignment shop
But! I do feel the biggest improvement was the Torsion bar even for the driver that doesnt want to fix up their cars which is why i posted this thread.. Everything everyone is saying on here holds truth and all these parts will make a substantial difference on how your car behaves. All of which are great depending on the budget and what you are trying to accomplish with the car (Or driving habits). However what you will see in this thread is that everyone has a Rear torsion bar regardless of where it is in the their list... Thanks for all the Input guys/gals!!
man.. When i start to try and list the stuff i have done to the car... I didnt realize i have spent so much money on this thing... To think i told myself when i bought this that i was going to leave it stock!!!!! LOL opps
One of these days i may do a build thread...
Interesting stuff. So for $250.00 I can buy all those mods? Wow...way cheaper to mod these things. Just need someone to install them. Any suggestions in the Maryland area?

This list of mods i had a few posts ago is well into the Thousands..
But the list X posted is about $250
I do not know anyone in Maryland, but im sure there are a few shops around.
