Default I've got $2xx to spend, what to buy?? 05 pt gt

I've got $200-something to spend on parts on my pt,
should I get:
a down pipe with exhaust? Can I use SRT4 stuff for this?
Used unmarried Diablo tuner?
Upper, lower and intake hard pipes (intake box mod done) via eBay diy kit about @ $85
Or???

For the most part it's a stock gt, brand new timing belt, water pump, belts, All motor mounts, plus, wires, fluids, wheels & tires, and lowered via eibach springs.

Not sure which way to go. Interested in what you guys think is best next step. Thanks!

A used unmarried Diablo tuner is going to be the best bang for the buck. Of your list, that would be my choice. You aren't likely get much in the way of performance gains from turbo hard pipes and a cat delete unless you've done a whole lot of other stuff first. The 93 Octane Diablo Sport tune should be something you will notice immediately.

Tuner is it. Best bang for the buck.

Hey do you guys know if a Diablo used on an srt4 will work on the 05 pt gt?
Assuming it will, just want yo be sure before buying
