APR stage I, then what?

So I'm going to go with APR stage I and get it installed Friday so what would be the next cost effective performance add on? Cold air intake?

Would definitely go with the Carbonio intake stage 1+2. After that would be the APR downpipe and going to stage 2. This would present the most power gains.

If you are talking about cost effective then the cold air intake would be your next step.

water/meth injection would be more beneficial to your engine than both of those mods.

cooler intake temps, run higher (100) octane program, clean your valves, and all for the price of your BB downpipe!

That's the route I would take!

Let me know if you need any help locating a dealer with intakes I stock, ready to ship.
