You're welcome Teeeg. Your dollar is best spent on an exhaust purely for sound, a tune for refinement, and an intake manifold for actual power.

After that, coilover suspension is your best bang for buck. Covers both handling and cosmetics in a profound way. Switching out the RFT tires when they wear down to a decent summer non-rft is also a massive investment in comfort and cost of ownership. If you decide to get serious with your car, the possibilities are endless... cosmetically.

The most you can do power performance wise:
1. catless headers, but there are no reputable ones. Also too loud with an exhaust.
2. 3 stage manifold
3. LSD with different gears
4. Weight reduction

Thanks I will be sure to look into all those mods in the future!
