cai..catback exhaust (NO Flowmasters), tuner (superchips or diablo)... find out what gears you have, if 3.92's you can change them later..if 3.55's, change to 4.56's. Y-pipe, 180 tstat...do these first and then I'll tell you what to do in the next round of mods..

Should be 3.92 for the Daytona package. Don't get caught up in trying to make the Hood Scoop into Ram Air, just pull the plastic piece and let the air in to cool the engine.

Nice lookin Daytona, I have a similar setup with the bee, havnt added the headers yet, but the CAI and the diablo def makes a noticeable difference. Pretty sure I have the 3.92's in the rear as well

I'd say go with a supercharger...boost is always on and they are pretty easy to tune.

Nothing wrong with researching until you have the funds.
I use to think about what to get when i was stock and how it would be nice to have 5-6 lines of mods in my sig LOL.
