UR O2 downpipe, or Depo Racing intercooler?

Hey guys, I have a UR O2 downpipe that I've been waiting to install. I tried getting it done a few weeks ago, but ran into a few frozen bolts that will need to be broken off and drilled and re-threaded in order to put the dp on. The labor is going to cost me about the same as purchasing a Depo Racing intercooler, which I planned on getting eventually. I have the money to go one way or the other right now. Which do you think I should go with right now? I know it's all preference, but which do you think will give the best performance increase right now? If it's the dp, I'll stick with that project, but if I'd get more out of the intercooler, I'll do that first. I realize I could wait and save up for both, but I'm impatient like that, lol.

I've always been under the impression that the DP doesnt really need to be replaced on the X until you start approaching 400whp. The cat and cat back are really the spots that restrict the most. If this is true, i'd say go for the IC

Depending on your future modification desires I would recommend starting with the intercooler. The stock IC gets heatsoaked relatively quickly making the IC a much more important upgrade than the downpipe.

Finish the first project you started. If the screws are rounded, buy a socket to remove it. They may not break. The dp is definitely a pita.
