General consensus:

WAMS ECM/TCM Tune - $425 (15 HP)
GT-R Exhaust - $600 + shipping (5 HP)
CRABs Intake - $100 - 200 (3-5 HP)

All these are estimates. You will get more out of the exhaust and intake if you are tuned for them.

You can also get:
- Strut bar
- Motor Mount Inserts
- Ram Air
- Lowering springs
- Ultra-High Performance tires
- Sway bars

You can choose to ship your PCM, leaving your car useless, or have WAMS buy one. Note that this does void all warranties if the dealership finds out (which is highly unlikely). If you opt for the spare PCM, it will be impossible because you can just exchange the PCM before going to the dealership if you are worried.

If you have more questions, then ask.

I have the same engine as you. First thing i did was CRABs FPU(now sold out but email Lampoon to get on the waiting list). Also have Toyo performance tires which help more than you would think.

Ordering:
RacingLine STB
RacingLine MMIs
RacingLine Grounding Kit
Eibach Lowering Springs

Then over winter i will be custom making an exhaust.

Last thing should always be the tune, get the ECM tuned to every performance part you have so you get the most bang for your buck.

Visual Mods: Back half 5% tint, Front half 15% tint, 5% Eyebrow tint, Rain guards, Debadged, Arrowhead overlays, Interior LEDs, Painted engine covers, Tinted tails, 6K Low Beam HID, 8K High Beam HID, Painted Grilles, Painted Door Trim

Performance Mods: CRAB intake, 18" Toyo Extensa x 4, Racingline STB, Racingline Grounding Kit

Audio Mods: Head Unit: Pioneer AVH-P5100DVD, Front Speakers: Memphis 6 1/4, Rear Speakers: Memphis 6 x 9, Subwoofers: Kenwood KFC-W3012 12" x 2, Amp: Kenwood KAC-8105D 500W

The only thing to get it tuned for is intake, headers, and exhaust for V6's. You can have him tune for these even if you don't have them, you just won't experience the full benefit until you get those parts installed.
