Default Best performance parts for a 2013 scion frs under 1.5K?

Just bought a FRS. I want to add some power to the wheels. What parts do you recommend to give the car a little more HP? I have about 1.5K that i have to spend for right now. Will possibly spend more in the future.

Scion's don't have a very large engine. They were meant for fuel economy. That being said: you can "chip" it. Bullydog and others have tuning chip kits that improve the power. Other than that you are looking at physically modifying the engine and drive train. Throttle body kits help, but your engine is "electronically" controlled to meet pollution standards for 2013. This control is not easy or cheap to over come. The only other way to help the horsepower that is not a waste of money is to over size the inside diameter of the entire exhaust from the engine back including; headers, mufflers, catalytic converters, resonators and all pipes. This lets the engine breathe better and improves power. Leaving a restricted part in anywhere in the system will negate this power gain.

Just a high flow exhaust system and an underdrive pulley. The stock air intake is pretty good. I would not waste money on an aftermarket one.
