      2.0L performance upgrades!

      So, I'm sure there are other posts with similar information, but I felt I could use a thread to myself, for some help with my "build plan"...

      With that said, I have the 2.0L engine and have a roadmap of upgrades I'd like to do. My question to you, is which brands/parts.

      For CAI, I'm thinking either Injen brand or K&N, and both have differences.. What do you think?

      For exhaust, I'm of course stuck between Magnaflow (yet to be released) or a Flowmaster system. Both bolt on's, and my bumper does NOT have the tips, so if that matters, let me know. Opinions?

      Tuning, I'm not sure which tune to even use.. There are a plethora. Any recommendations?

      Turbo/supercharger, of course, I'm holding my breath on it, but I'd heavily consider such an upgrade if it was ever made available to me. So, keeping that in mind, that slightly skews my plan for upgrades, figuring I'll plan to do that IF available.

      Lastly, what body mods do you recommend? I would like a full body kit, add a spoiler, and lower the car. Don't want too much risk of scratching, so not too low, but you guys have great recommendations, so, what do you think?

      Thanks for all the help. I just want to do things the RIGHT way.

      I would wait for HPSI or Tork, I know RRM has a box tuner but I'd wait fore the real thing.

      Turbo/supercharger, of course, I'm holding my breath on it, but I'd heavily consider such an upgrade if it was ever made available to me. So, keeping that in mind, that slightly skews my plan for upgrades, figuring I'll plan to do that IF available.
      There are two turbo threads from two vendors here on the forums, both are on the 2.4 engine but I believe both vendors(RRM and Tork) have expressed interest in the 2.0 as well.

      Lastly, what body mods do you recommend? I would like a full body kit, add a spoiler, and lower the car. Don't want too much risk of scratching, so not too low, but you guys have great recommendations, so, what do you think?

      Dodge Dart Rear Diffuser (Part No: 82213091AB) For your new dual exhaust

      Dodge Dart Side Skirt Kit (Part No: 82213092AB)

      Dodge Dart Front Chin Spoiler (Part No: 82213090)

      Thank you SO much for your wonderful advice @zuiquan1 !!! I hope I quoted properly, I'm new to the forum. Hopefully not a redundant question, but I'm figuring most parts come with installation guides, correct? If not, how easy is this to do on ones own (or with a some-what experienced friend with me)? Your advice helps a ton, and I'll look into everything you recommended. Regarding body kit, should that be done all at once, or can it be parted together as money comes? Wouldn't want my car looking weird, but will likely do exhaust and such before appearance, but will need a way to allow for dual exhaust, since I lack the ports for it in the stock bumper.

      Thanks again!

      You can get the dual exit exhaust fascia from our vendor here Benny, or consider the mopar rear diffuser

      Thanks for the tip! Besides its sweet looks, and real gain by just going straight ahead and getting the diffuser rather than the standard fascia?
