Greetings everyone!

Been lurking for awhile here soaking up all the knowledge you fine gentlemen and ladies bless us with, but finally figured I'd get off my ass and actually contribute.

2002 Acura RSX Type S Pearl White
164k miles
Stock k20a2, Stock 6 speed MT
Kpro v4
Injen Cold Air intake
RBC 70 mm port
Ktuned 70 mm throttle body
Megan Shorty Header
Invidia q300 exhaust
Koni Shocks/ Tein htech springs
SHG Rack Slider
Megan rear control arms
Front camber bolts
Stoptech drilled/slotted rotors/ Powerstop pads
Stock 16" wheels/ 205/45R/16 Firehawk Indy500 tires
Buddy Club short shifter / Hybrid Racing bushings

Last dyno: 216 HP, 153 lbft torque

Future goals:
Short term to max out power of stock engine n/a ~ 240 hp
Long term turbocharge ~ 400 hp
Start tracking (SCCA time trials or Autocross)

Next possible mods:
-Race header (skunk2 or ktuned) w/cat delete
-Bigger injectors (injector dynamics 1050x or RDX 410, I'm at about 83% load on stock injects right now)
-Upgrade Fuel Pump (Walbro 255 or DW400)
-Inverted tie rod/ends (so many options! Buddy Club RCA vs PCI tie rod kit vs ktuned kit)
-Upgraded Cams (TSX 08'Cams or DC 3.2, honestly my tuner said not worth it unless I go with bigger cams that require upgraded springs/seats)
-Wheels/Tires (RPF1 17x8 or Heliogram 17×8 /Tires undecided right now but at least 225 width)

That's all I have so far, recommendations and tips are welcomed.
Thank you for your time!

Q300 has a great note compared to stock. It's slightly louder than stock but has a deeper tone (plus performance advantage of 70mm diameter!) The only negative I would give it is the fitment. It initially rubbed the body frame right under the passenger seat (which is a common complaint with this exhaust.) Like some owners here I had to make "adjustments" to make it fit (e.g. hammering the exhaust tunnel and installing extended exhaust hanger mounts at the cat). Even then it still rubs/vibrates occasionally at certain rpms.
Damn, I was thinking about getting the Q300 as I had heard they fixed the clearance issues and I like how it looks.
