Yeah, engine dress up would get you a lot of points. Since body mods and engine mods is where you get most of your points, that's what I would do next. I got 10 1st place trophies and mine was almost stock. Judges say I won just because my car was so clean. My engine just had a CAI
and painted plastics. Another thing you can do to your engine for a couple dollars is take a rag and some Mothers metal polish to the surface of your engine. Rub the hell out of it with that a few times and you can get your engine to look almost chrome. Try it.
