Cool FIRST WAVE OF MODS! E9x

Jumping into the performance upgrading head first! Ordered MS pulleys, MS stage 1 intake, Challenge x pipe street, Challenge slip on exhaust, and a few cosmetic stuff for sheer ascetics. Dumped about 4k+ on these goodies and my question is, am I being penny wise and dollar foolish not going with the extra $300+ for the MS stage 2 vs. MS stage 1? Personally, from what i read, I doubt I'm gonna feel the difference. And also, I cannot seem to find a vid of full Challenge exhaust (street x pipe w/ slip on rear)? Does anyone have this setup? Am I gonna need a tune?? It never ends, LoL!!! Thx...

New Mods E9x

Just purchased MS stage 1 intake, MS pulleys, full Challenge street exhaust. Will the stage 1 vs. stage 2 intake make much of a difference? Hard to justify the $300+... Is a tune the next step?

Since your new(clearly), and a bit excited(clearly), take a step back, sit down, and breathe. Were all here for similar reasons, but you'll find that you'll be welcomed with open arms if you contribute and act accordingly (maturity goes a long way on the Internet).

Start with an introduction, since you and your car are new. Tell us about yourself, previous cars, goals, plans, ect..
