Hi all,
I've had my 2014 Koup for a year now and have recently begun modifications. So far I have installed the 6th Element SRI and IR delete. I also just ordered some Tork collars and XP5703 spark plugs. Anything beyond this is new territory for me. Is there a sort of natural progression that any of you follow with modifications? Any mods that you feel have a higher priority for the cost/performance benefit? I'm thinking my next buy will be an oil catch.
Thanks for your suggestions.

Catch cans for sure! That's a huge one actually. After that open up the exhaust. From there it's up to you on what you want to do with the car.

Can do a fmic, downpipe, suspension, tune, meth injection, 60mm throttle body. The list can go on for a bit lol just depends on budget and what you want from the car

If your manual i would recommend the cable bushings from 6th there a night and day difference when you replace them. Def get yourself a catch can, I empty mine with every oil change and it's filled about half way. I recently installed the downpipe from tork and i can feel the power increase. Next I'm gutting the 2nd cat, tork tune, and may pull the trigger on the Jun BL catback haven't decided yet tho.

Biggest thing I tell people when they ask what mods to do is to sit down and think about what you want out of the car. Do you want a corner machine, power, looks ect. I went with power first but in between I did a torsion bar, trunk brace, lowering springs, broken K badges, red brake calipers. Really think about what you want because with enough money anything is possible

I have been there before....twice!! lol

Anyways OP if you want power get that exhaust opened up with deleting the second cat and getting a downpipe and doing 2.5" or 3" exhaust. But before anything GET THOSE CATCH CANS ASAP!!!!!!

That's where I am now bro. Just had our second boy 3 weeks ago. That's why I'm trying to go the DIY route wherever possible.

I want to do the wastegate hack. That sounds cheap enough. Doing my DIY mudflaps this weekend. Well everything but the actual flap. Definitely been trolling that spark plug thread as well.

Congrats on the baby bro!

Once i decide if im getting the tune or the exhaust will determine which spark plugs I get. I cant wait to see the mud flaps I've been itching to try doing some Rally Armor.

The flaps that just got posted are nice. I want mine a little gaudier so I will be maxing the offset.

The SPARCO universal flaps are $20 a pair on Amazon. The Rally Armour ones are so expensive.
