hey there, welcome from Raleigh NC! Where are you from?

as far as performance things, I have only done k&n and new exhaust system, been focusing on appearance before I mess with performance, someone smarter will be along eventually.

waste of money!

not much you can do with a n/a PT, the cold air intake and exhaust are about it.
