Comes down to money for real power, and not worth it. Engine swap, turbo, retune. If you do any bolt ons you are wasting your money. The ECU will in time, adjust for your changes to maintain what was programmed by the factory. Air Intakes, Mufflers, Lighter Pulleys, all of that is temporary butt dyno gains and making someone else rich at your expense. You have a slow reliable fuel effecient AWD car, if you want more, pony up the money. Customize a car how you like, focus on handling, brakes, suspension, your driving skill. If you want to sound like a fart, be you, but unless you get proper bits and tune it right, and you'll spend a LOT, save your money.
