So exactly where should I start including chassis, power foundations, and engine.
Sorry, got off on a tangent.

You should start with the items that will pay for themselves engine wise -the stuff that will make your engine more efficient -which means stuff that will make more power with your engine tune set at stock.

Pick up a set of underdrivers, a CAI, and if you can find one, an intake spacer of 3/4" that fits between the upper and lower intake manifold.

-if you know you're going to take a while, you might want to consider the 1.8RRs for the time being if you know you're not going to swap out the cam for 1 or two years -if that makes any sense . ..

put away the money you save and start with subframe connectors, a rear sway bar, a strut tower brace at a minimum, and after that go to work on your rear end.

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
