The internals don't add power but because you've modified your exhaust with a test pipe, their have been cases of fuel pressure dropping to low and people hitting fuel cut. The new internals prevent that by increasing fuel pressure a few hundred psi. However thats not always the case, but its just something to be aware of.

The stock catback isn't really much of a restriction and won't net you any power gains, but if you want louder sound it may be cheaper to just have someone weld in bigger mufflers.

Personally when I first bought my car, I wanted to get all the ducks out of the pond so my purchases in order after studying were RMM/F+R Diff mounts>more reading>Intake>more reading>AP>Internals>more reading>DP

Of course a short shifter and some exterior mods were thrown in there as well

RMM is on my list as well. I have aslo considered internals, but it seems like big job that i probly wouldnt be able to do. The only reason i was turning away from the accessport was the price, i also live in canada so the shipping isnt free, + the duty fees which would all add up to $700+

You can order the accessport from a certified Cobb dealer in Canada. You don't have to order directly from Cobb. Or find a used one you can buy from another member. Thats what i did!
