Looking for opinions, mods are in my sig, just installed a Wagner i30 intercooler, should I do plugs & tune next or 3" exhaust? I don't have a specific hp goal, just to make more go fast & have fun.

You're hitting tune limiters now most likely. Between that and the oem tune not being great to start with you most likely need plugs and a tune. But that may also mean you need new oem coils or fuel line or some other maintenance item first that was not mentioned yet. Tune must be safe and from a trusted tuner if you go that route.

I want to see the intercooler installed :)

I'll be taking the bumper cover back off to do some other things and take detailed pics but here's a sneak peek.

I posted one on a car trying to test fit way back but the cost and mods needed to make it fit the customer was not interested in spending.

It's definitely not a bolt on affair. I had to trim the upper radiator support to clear the new temp sensor location and make new upper mounting brackets for the cooler and the condenser, trim the bumper cover/grill, and no crash bar will fit, unless it's on the outside of the bumper cover lol. But it does "fit".

What plugs do you recommend for your tunes?

NGK or HKS. Heat range and plug gap will depend on the tune and fuel used.
