    Okay, so I am very slowly tuning my 2015 FiST. I currently have an AEM Cold Air Intake (picked first because I have a thing for that lovely wastegate sound) and I am stuck on what to do next.

    The two choices are either:

    A monotune quick shift AND a rear engine mount; or
    A FSWERKS 2 1/2" catback exhaust.

    What are your thoughts?

    I'd love to do both but don't have the free cash, so its the good old one at a time over the next few years deal.

    It's not one of your choices, but I'd recommend you get a Cobb (or other) tune next.

    It depends on what you want: If you want other people to hear your car go with the exhaust, but if you want to knock out some solid must-have mods early, go with the RMM/Quick Shift. I went with the quick shift and RMM as my two first upgrades and haven't had any regrets. The shift feels great and the RMM has broken in nicely, and I have a solid platform to add power to.

    Awesome! Thanks guys, appreicate the help. With renewed focus I think my course of action will be:

    1) RMM/Quick Shift;
    2) COBB tuning computer; and
    3) Exhaust

    That's what I was thinking as well, but that would mean putting the Intercooler in at 1.5. Too many decisions!

    The intercooler isn't necessary until you want to progress up front stage 1, but is pretty much 100% necessary to go past. I don't have much interest in stage 1 anyways so I don't mind waiting.

    It seems an ecu tune is one of the few things that can always be used to deny a warranty claim, where as everything else is a bit more debatable. So I'm also trying to make sure I don't have a lemon before taking the dive into a protune.

    I've been making all the same hard decisions over the past year and this is just how it's worked out haha.

    I fully agree. I'm holding off on the ECU for the same reasons. Stage 1 seems almost pointless and at least two oil changes until I'm fully comfortable with the reliablity.
    I've ordered the RMM and Quick Shift, I'll let you know how it turns out.

    Add to that a Cold Air Intake and you'll be set. You'll see a bigger difference from the Accessport.

    Cold intake, check. Probably the best , first, upgrade. IMO. RMM and Quick Shift shipped yesterday. Can't wait.
