Default 2008 acura tl tuning?

I have a totally stock 2008 acura tl. I wanna make it a bit faster and sound better but I don't know what is most effective for how much you have to spend. Headers? Turbo? K&n air filter? It already has duel exhaust so what should I do next?

It's not a dual exhaust, it just has 2 tips. The only TRUE dual exhaust on the market right now for the Acura TL is the RV6. Cost almost 1k for just the catback. The PCD's (Pre-Cat Deletes/High Flow Pre-Cat) and J-Pipe will come separate. If you are still wondering what the heck is a PCD, the Acura TL came with 3 Catalytic Converters, one on each exhaust manifold, then another bigger one on the downpipe (aka J-Pipe). But before all of that performance, I would worry about getting an oil cooler for your transmission first.

Speed costs money, how much do you want to spend??

Turbo- forget it, engine wasn't engineered for the low compression a turbo engine needs. Plus, I doubt there is even an application for that engine.

K&N- allows the engine to "breathe better" minimal to none power gain, but great that you don't have to replace the filter every year, just wash and reoil.

Mr. is right.
