I have recently just bought a Mitsubishi Magna VRX limited edition and I am looking for advice on going down the road of more power, I am willing to sink some $$ into it over time, but looking for best bang for buck mods... Getting mixed information, and would like some advice.. the car at the moment is completly stock, it's a 5 speed manual

The best bang for the buck is a conversion to the 6G75.
I don't know where you are but there are a few Mitsubishi specialists who carry out this conversion.

I eventually will be doing that but for now I will be going for a performance exhaust and extractors as the exhaust needs to be replaced because of a hole, will be patched up in the meantime but I don't know where to look for them... I want to get the rpw extractors but I can't find prices on an exhaust system for it and idk where to start looking

I can 100% tell you extractors are for looks. The factory exhaust manifold is actually a very good design, free flowing, no major flow issues. Extractors will look nice but you will feel 0 gain from them.
Best bang for buck modifications
- 6G75 camshafts, bit of a pain in the ass to fit for sure, but you'll grab a set of cams for $40 from the wreckers, and these are a great upgrade on the 3.5L
- 3.8L intake manifold modded to suit the 3.5L.
- Flash the Ralliart tune on.

I did the above, cost me about $500 in total, and well, the car was AWESOME. Really woke up the 3.5L. I loved it to the point I didn't care for the 3.8L as the small mods and money spent on the stock motor went so bloody good.

Not much else you can do unless you want to go down the more money path
