I'm new to this in all different kinds of ways, but here it goes, I've looked extensively for aftermarket exhausts and intakes ive seen intakes but would much rather spend what money I have now on a exhaust then a short ram , problem is I'm having trouble narrowing it down if someone could through a product my way that fits my car (2012 lancer awc se 2.4) I would greatly appreciate it , I will also put up pics of the mods I've done so far , there all just cosmetics though.

Before
And after... 1 out of 2
2 out of 2.

I replaced the front bumper and corner fenders and hood ( car accident forced me to a bit earlier than I wanted to but eh..) side licence plate frame, smoked out headlights, plasti-dipped white stock rims, bumper is from duraflex along with licence plate side mount. And my buddy and I painted everything with the stock paint code wicked white.

The bumper i have
The price I paid for everything
Plasti-dipped.
Nav Bluetooth head unit, came with it.
Not my first time modding.
not my first Mitsubishi.
the eclipse is also mine , I've got mods on that too , I'm actually going to eventually take my 17in. Rims off that and put it on my lancer and paint them . That's down the road though , I have a dc sports exhaust on it and cold air intake but I blew the trans so it just sits there..

I will post interior too later on, I need some help with exhaust, I need a nice exhaust with a nice sound, preferably a cat back but after looking I'm sure that's close to impossible , or an axle back exhaust . My future mods after the exhaust are gonna be a piggy back , tires and rims as mentioned earlier , short ram intake , fins on the rear top of car and side windows (like the old evos&#128513 and a rear bumper diffuser, lights at the foot well and then I'm done. Lol at least till I pay this thing off , then I'm going ***** to the wall with a turbo

Just found out that the cobb v3 access port isn't compatible with the Lancer se awc 2012 2.4L . That sucks considering that was part of the master plan. But to replace that, I researched a little about the rrm timing controller . Seems legit from the review. I do believe im going to get the power pack stage two that rrm (road race motorsport) supplies for like $700 (maybe a few dollars less I forget) . I just gotta save up a few more bills lol. I, however will not be getting the stage 3 power pack because of the piggyback ecu that comes with it. I will not splice into wires not only to preserve my warranty , but simply because that just isn't right. Flashing is one thing, but cutting into wires on the ecu is a no no for me.

Better get a tune instead of putting any piggy back ECUs like RRM's box.

It's funny how you painted your wheels, because you painter over the balance weights Next time when you need to balance the wheel these weights will have to be removed.
