Those are the exact mods that i want to do this spring. I don't know that much but I know that these are good things to start off with. Also, you are not getting into anything that expensive.

hey i have a desert silver base auto and a dc sports 4-2-1 header too. Not sure on the gains but you should get a race header instead. Good gains from what i have heard.

This will elminate your cat. converter unless you weld one in there. If you do get a CEL, than get an 02 simulator as well.

Icebox won't fit on an automatic. If he wants an aftermarket air box, he'll have to go Mugen.
