Should I buy a progress sway Bar and an Intake today?

I want to have an answer by the time I leave work so whichever option has the most votes is the one I'm gonna do.

Titanium Grey HB 5 spd, ABS, Moonroof, Leather seats, Exel RS-GT 17x7.0 Hyperblack 225/45/17 Azenis RT-615, Racing Beat Front/Rear Sway + Endlinks, Mazdaspeed MSP3 Coilovers, 88 AWR Mount, Apexcone 6000k HID, I deturboed my car and removed my built engine. I'm now stock powertrain + an Injen.

Well do you race? Or do you just drive around?

If you just drive around then get the wheels ...if you are in need of performance buy the performance upgrades.

Re: Should I buy a progress sway Bar and an Intake today?

I'm looking to start racing for fun, but I pretty much approach the drive to and from work as a race....so I figure it couldn't hurt. I really want my car to perform and handle better (and maybe get better gas mileage although thats trivial) because I like to take turns going 50 or 60 and the girls love it when I drive fast.

I say go with the Rear Sway and Injen Intake. I have injen and I love it. I want to get the rear sway but its too damn out here in Arizona to install it.

I say get the sway bar and AEM intake since that is what I have and am a little biased

Sway and Injen is my vote if you want to start racing...but wheel will help you when racing..I love my new wheels and tires compared to last years racing.

Getting an AEM Intake whill actually cause your mileage to go down. Just a thought.

I'd go for better tires; our stock tires suck!

Re: Should I buy a progress sway Bar and an Intake today?

Um why would the mileage go down. Unless the engine is spraying more gas (which it shouldn't unless I'm at WOT) then I should be getting better gas mileage right?
