i say leave the suspension alone for a while, buy some nice remus or super spring exhuast some conforti cold air intake, and a bavarian auto chip and your 328 will be moving! Does it hav rims on it yet if not do that too!
when you buy a chip you do'nt have to do anything special, except hook it up...yes you can do it yourself it's very easy
i just read the thread about your new car, i like it, and by the way
you have a '98, someone correct me if i'm wrong, but that is obdII which means you have to get a shark injector...you don't actually install the chip, you just re-flash the memory with new software

When you add a chip you can do it yourself, it depends though. Usually it is a replacement ECU which all you need to do is remove the old one and plug the wires into the new one.
It isn't required to do any other mods but intake and exhaust will give you a bigger increase when combined with the chip. The reason it can give you a performance increase because basically it is a rerogrammed engine management program for your car so it will run your engine for optimal performance.
To reprogram your chip you will need to buy a shark injector. It goes into your obdII "reciever" and you hit a few buttons and you're done.
