if your meaning performance upgrades then get a CAI and Exhaust, Turbocharging it would be a great idea because you have a GT but its an auto so probably not worth it.

You can also do some painting and detailing in the engine bay to match your exterior.

headers and exhaust,CAI and apexi power fc, nitrous (zex),grounding kit,wieght reduction- these are all great ways to go faster--turbo if you can afford it too

if you are going N/A, then get a CAI, A header, a good exhoust and fuel management. Maybe flywheel and port and polish.
If you are going Turbo, then you would have a lot more HP wich still can be upgraded.

If you get a CAI and exhaust, it might not be worth buying a header. Reason why I say this is because adding a header to are cars w/ CAI and exhaust, wont make much of a diffrence when it comes to whp on the GTS, not sure about the GT auto. Might wanna look into it.

it's an auto so too bad no flywheel for him (my favorite mod after PowerFC). If more power is what he wants, I'd say sure why not go turbo. He can boost as high as the stock internals and tranny will hold, and I'm sure that will be plenty fast for a better daily-driving experience.


I get my kicks on EC.
