I agree with the posts above - drive it first and decide what you don't like about it, set some goals, work on changing those things. Unless you have unlimited monies.
Just trying to get the look/sound right now, power will come later.

The mods in general are a good progression, but plan your FI method now, since obviously the headers won't work with a turbo kit. Power gains NA are not impressive for the money spent so plan your power mods around your eventual choice in FI.
Will the headers do fine with SC?

Yes. You could also tailor the ACE headers for certain types of SC and where you would want the power band shifted to.

@CSG Mike should be able to answer any question regarding the choice of header.

@Impureclient - not sure why the snarkiness in your earlier quote. I have seen it happen too many times on this forum where people don't plan for their long term goal.

I want to SC it eventually, went with that size hoping to sort of have the car "grow" into it's grip.

Will they still have a good life for DD?

Thank you for the advice sir!

A car with too much grip for its power is boring. A car with too much power for the grip is fun. Also teaches you to drive better.

If you are dead set on changing stuff out of the gate, I'd start with the tune and exhaust. Yeah it's less flashy but you will enjoy driving it more while saving for the next thing. I would definitely be laughing at the car with 255s and a stock exhaust if I saw one, but not the car with the extra umph and sound on stock tires. You will also get more use out of the tires you've already paid for.

1. Until now, what is the most powerful car you've owned or driven regularly?

2. Assuming you own the car outright, aside from the cost of fuel, how much money per year do you expect to spend on it?

3. Do you work on your own stuff?

I run 265 tires and a stock exhaust. And a rather large wing.

@Logikal Reazon the best advice I can give you is to define your end goal, and then figure out how to get there.

A gently used 488 and GT3 is a rather large range...

@CSG MikeIs that a square setup or staggered? Also what else do you have done to the car?

Thanks!

I can't say since I'm only like 1.5-2k into these but I only got a little over 8k out of my MPSS. These still look like brand new so I know they'll go much longer than the 8k for sure.
