    Welcome to TW! Keyless entry: you can always go to a local/neighborhood mom and pop audio store and have one installed there or you can get a factory OEM one, but it only comes as a package with the alarm. I believe it's called the VIP Alarm.

    CAI: not really worth the $200 or so. Do the deckplate mod and you'll get the same performance for a fraction of the price. Deckplate mod link: http://www.customtacos.com/tech/index.php?article=85

    Lift kits: What's your budget? Many go with the Revtek or Toytech spacers in the front and new leaf packs ,like Deaver, Alcan, or Dakar, or shackles or AALs for the rear. If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, you can get replacement coilovers in the front like Sway-A-Ways, King, Donahoe or Camburg and these coilovers run anywhere from $700-$1100 for the 'Hoes and can get you 1"-3" of lift.

    Below is a link to a beginner's guide to lifting. Hope this all helps you out.

    Rain will not get in the air box. We had monsoonal rain a few years back and the filter stayed dry throughout the whole rainy season. If I were you I would really reconsider the K&N intake. The oiled gauze type filter will do more harm than good, trust me on this.
