Taking inspiration from @iammarkus
I’ll be posting my ever growing list of mods here. I hope you all enjoy this money dumping hobby/ as much as I’m about to. In addition, I haven’t really modded my cars in the past so please bare with me 😅.
I’m open to suggestions and ideas on making this process easier both on my mind and wallet. With that lets begin!!

Car: 2020 EGT N-line

I learned from previous money pits to pick and choose wisely. What do you really want to do? Is this the platform you want to do it with.

Yeah that’s why I’m here lol. I’m still in the research phase in getting together a list of mods and brands I wanna go with pros and cons and such. Since this is a daily I don’t wanna go crazy, but some subtle changes to make the car more fun and responsive while adding some style is all good to me

I’ll be posting a list soon and if anyone interested wants to suggest brands, upgrades or other ideas be my guest!

Ive been meaning to do a full list of my mods as well. I can recommend all the performance mods I have done thus far. Feel free to ask questions. My goal was to do things that wouldnt be noticable at the dealer for the most part. Throttle controller you can hide, valve isnt too noticable, piggyback can be easily removed, pulleys are black and do not stand out, axle back doesnt void anything. If i had to take in for major work just take a couple things off...

Afe takeda axle back
Pierburg wastegate valve
Hikeit throttle controller
Bluespark 1.6t piggyback
K and n panel filter
Tork motorsports tork pipe
NST black aluminum veloster turbo pulleys (they fit, same engine)
Lightweight konig renform wheels
Tork motorsports frot lower control arm braces
19mm rear sway bar off of a veloster N
Catch can and breather filter

Do you mean Tork Motorsports Downpipe?
Also, how do you feel bang for the buck was on the throttle controller and the lightweight pulleys?

Think he means: 1.6T Tork Pipe

May help but more a gimmick to me.

I would also rather invest in lighter weight wheels than pulleys. Reducing un-sprung weight can give you noticeable handling gains.

Yeah just the small resonator delete. Pulleys were nice, but nothing earth shattering. Throttle controller helped a lot with lag a lot and overall feel, didn't add power. But it MAY make the car quicker off the line. I remember without it being scared to pull out across traffic because of the horrible delay. I've done so many small mods, that it's no longer like that at all. Its has all added up to make the car much more fun to drive for sure.

Fyi, turned my throttle controller off yesterday to see how it felt. It SUCKED. You have to press the pedal down half way before anything happens, just feels unnatural. It sure makes the car feel faster and more fun to drive. I should try some 0 to 60 times with it on and off when it gets a little warmer out. Bottom line, I recommend it even if its just for driving charastics.

Shouldn't make any difference WOT is WOT. The controllers do not change that.

I didn't say it changed WOT. Just the crazy amount of dead pedal before anything happens. I've heard it said that it also snaps open the throttle faster instead of a slow roll to open, and that's where you get better acceleration. Weather that is true or not, I don't know

No you said you want to try some 0-60 times when it gets warmer. Since this devise doesn't increase any power your times should stay the same. This device only changes throttle responsiveness. I have a Scorcher and in sport + mode it does both. My response is good and and my 0-60 is lots better.
