    Seeing how I'm sure to get in trouble with the better half when it comes to modding, guess I should start off slow this time. So, where do I start. I'm not looking to go crazy like my last project, but any upgrades that may help with the MPG, performance, looks, etc. Big thing is I probably won't do much to "tamper" with the warranty this time, but I will deffininitly push the limits of it...Lol. Start me off fellas.... K&N, or whole new intake... exhaust? Etc?

    I love my K&N intake...I saw an increase in mpg and throttle response (4-banger manual). I'm not too fond of my magnaflow cat-back...a better muffler would do just fine.
