I am looking to furthur upgrade my car. So far i installed a cold air intake, put in some iridium spark plugs, and changed to synthetic oil. My next item i am looking at is a new exhaust system....but after that then what? I have seen some intakes with a plastic housing around the filter, what is that, and is it recommended? I would appreciate any help

(sorry for the spelling)

Only meaningful upgrade other than a turbo would be a header. Could always do a timing advance, coolant by-pass and grounding kit for seat of the pants increases. Balance shaft delete too if you have a 2.3...

Not sure what you are referring to about the plastic thing on the intake.

prolly means splash guard, and it's nice to have if you're liable to get water splashing on the filter otherwise.

i'd think about suspension mods too. unless you're gonna invest big bucks, your car isn't gonna be a straight line screamer, but you can beat them around the corners.

Or you could try bringing your car to a drag or auto-x event and really push it. Then you will know what upgrades you would like.
