Money to upgrade a few things.

Still serving overseas and wanting to gain some efficiency on my 2001 EX. For me, efficiency is a little better gas mileage & better HP for towing. I am not going for any speed increase as that's not important.

My thoughts are that I'd like to upgrade the intake & Exhaust & possibly the Turbo. For the Intake, the 6637 seems to be the one. For the exhaust, I would solicit for your opinions, but they must have a muffler because of inspection requirments where Im stationed. As for the Turbo, no clue so your experienced opinion is needed. Bellowed Up pipes too?

The vehilce is not in Europe yet but ships in a few weeks so I have a little time to get this stuff completed beforehand.

With all this said, Devils Advocate opinions are welcome as well. If there's an arguement for not doing this , let's hear it.

Thanks!

If it were me I would do the AIS intake(I have this already) Diamond Eye 4" exhaust, you can get it with the muffler, I would do the WW2( Wicked Wheel Gen 2) instead of replacing the whole turbo. Leaves you some cash for some custom tunes. I am looking at the DP Tuner myself, but everyone has an opinion on these.

I'm in the same boat. My buddy recommended this one: Edge Products| Product

But like you said, everyone's got opinions.
