    My Mod list have i forgotten anything?

    Ok so the goal with this list is to get maybe 20 extra Hp out of the car while keeping it largely stock and reliable as its my daily driver. Additionally I am doing a bit of cosmetic work to hopefully inhance the asthetics of the car but making it look as clean as possible.

    Performance:
    BMW CAI
    VANOS from Dr. Vanos
    Underdrive Pulleys
    Resonator Delete (both)

    Exterior:
    Matte black kidney
    CF splitters
    CF vinyl roof cover
    CF diffuser

    EDIT: may use matte black instead of CF

    Pretty simple I know but are my power gain asperations attainable with the given upgrades and also what are your thoughts on the Exterior mods posed?

    Oh, these are your plans... Yeah everything sounds good. Make sure that you'll pass your emissions test with that resonator delete.

    Very similar to mine, except for the CF roof, trunk. You have headers, maybe a s/w tune (AA, Dinan, or Shark)?

    I've been considering Shark just dont know what all it would do for me, maybe i should read more on it... I dont think I am gonna cover the trunk just the roof.

    I think a shark would do much more than pulleys ever would.

    Ya know, these mods aren't exclusive. It's never really what effect each part has (except for forced induction), but more of what the sum of the parts can do. Don't just get the Shark or the pulleys, get BOTH!
