ECU upgrade, bolt on stuff is good but not until your computer can optimize it.

IT IS WHAT IT IS AND EVERYTHING IS EVERYTHING.

Some decals, a GT-R Badge and a windshield banner that says something like "The Intimidator", or "The Dominator". Ya know stuff like that.

Well on a more serious note, both suggestions above were good ideas, but you could spend like $100 more added to that and get a AEM Tru-Power Pulley System and grounding wires from Here

Nitrous or turbo. I personally would concentrate on other areas of your car to balance it out like suspension, brakes, and drivetrain like said before.

everyone makes fun of the AEM pulley but it really is a worthwhile mod. its only $70 and it increases the throttle response therefore making driving that much funner thumbsup everyone should have this

agree, I have one as well

(although you shouldn't expect hp gains, the improved throttle response easily makes this mod worthwhile)

I tightened my throttle cable at the local car wash for throttle response. Cost me nothing, but 5 minutes of my time. That pulley is worthless unless going for every needed HP possible. I'll take out my jack from my trunk instead.

Choices:
1) Clutch, lightweight flywheel, and limited slip,
2) JIC Magic Coilovers,
3) JDM lightweight forged wheels,
4) TURBO.

Mmmmm!! JIC makes me salivate. I found them for $1500. I might have to sell my HA's depending on Friday when I bring my car in for repairs. Anybody want them for $500 dollars? Just asking for future reference. The front dampers are new. Only 6 months use. The back like 3 times as long. Can be overhauled for $75 a damper I believe. They are great though. That's a shameless plug for maybe an eventual sell here. Couldn't help myself, sorry. Delete it if you want ever watching moderators.

Well said.

But the windsheild has got to spell it all cool like;
"likqid dstOrtiOn" or "dst0rteD iMgS" or something.

Buy some non-cosmetics.
