For a tad bit more, I would get an Up Charge Pipe. Gives the car a great kick, especially when combined with Stage 1.

As SuGamer says a ucp would be a very good thing to go with stage 1. I've got both and it was very nice. I now have the AGP Billet adj WGA and a dual stage bc. My GT flies! You'll want to have stage 1 installed before installing a boost controller so as not to throw a CEL code if you boost too high. I would get a ucp before I raised boost because the factory one is going to balloon. I have the VAK ucp and I love it. Eventually I'd get it all [8)]

I'd agree on the UCP. Then you'll be able to get every bit of boost out of s1. The wga and boost controller really won't work as effectively w/o UCP.
