Default Performance Mods for newly obtained Vert

New to this forum:

I posted this in the project thread but I haven't gotten any suggestion so I decided to move the question here.

I have been researching Mods and this is the list of what I found most practical and what the consensus seems to agree give impressive noticeable improvements:

Water injection so I keep the stock IC
3 bar FPR
Modified APC
3" Down pipe
9000 Brake Calipers (front Only for safety of course)

Would the 2.1 head and Intake be suitable for that kind of an application?

I thought this car was going to be your wife's car? If I gave my wife a car like that our insurance would surely go up soon (she's got a lead foot IMO, though she'd probably never admit it). From that perspective I can tell you that my wife is perfectly happy with a redbox, 3 bar regulator and everything else bone stock and was probably satisfied before I added those anyways. That's plenty fast enough for her. Everything else on your list is the sort of thing you'd do to a car you plan to use at the track. Has your plan for the car changed?

No nothing has changed; this is exactly why I asked (I should have added "most practical for daily driving"). I just want mods enough to enhance overtake capabilities and just get a bit more pep out of the car. If the APC mod and FPR upgrade are sufficient for a lady then its what se will get. My wife is in her mid 30's so although not a dragster she does like to hit the gas pedal when she wants to get somehwere.

I will start there and do the exhaust just becasue it seems right and see how that feels; thanks mmoe.
