Depends on what you are looking for and if you are auto or man.

Bst bang for the $$ is turbo. But that is probably too much for you. There is Intake, exhaust, header, coms are coming soon, nitrous, clutch, flywheel, etc etc. The list goes on. For more info, search through the board. you will find sooooo much info. Good luck and welcome to the boards. thumbsup

Well to start out for hp...exhaust, Intake, pulley, pistons...anything like that
but to accomodate that you should have a good suspension set up.
start with exhaust and everything all that should run you 1k+ depending on what you buy
but search the forums for the best of each and you should get an idea on what to do. grin

Learn how to drive it properly. Go to a driving school like Panoz Racing School. My company rewarded me with a free 3 day course and it was well worth it.


Oh...uh,well I just checked the website and a course costs around $3,000. Maybe you would be better off with the mods first.

But if you want to check it out one day, here's the site: http://www.panozracingschool.com
