Need help on upgrade...

Ok its almost Christmas time and my wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas. Of course I want something for my Celi but, cannot make up my mind on what. I want to stay under a grand and here are the choices I came up with.

Carbon fiber invader Hood made with blue kevlar.

Laptop (Probably a Dell) with diagnostic software so i can see all parameters of my vehicle with live feedback.

Real coilover suspension maybe by tannabe or tein.

That is what I have thought of so far. Once I have received enough comments I will tally up the votes and that is what I will get. I appriciate your time and if you read this please vote. Once I get the item installed i will post pics. Thanks...

You cannot get a power FC for a 2003 GT. The 2003 GT is drive by wire and that would all have to be converted to the old system first. Which would be totally insane... They told me that in a year or two they may have a power FC that will work...

I'd get the laptop with the engine dyno but where would you get one for under 1000 dollars.

Ok she can go a little over a grand but, a Dell laptop is $699 and the diagnostic software is $199, that equals $900.00...

I don't think you can get a real coil-over set for under 1K but a lsd or carbon fiber Hood would be nice to find under the x-mas tree!

I'd go suspension if your wife has enough money, if not a nice diagnostic set-up would be tight thumbsup

Diagnostic setup.

In the future you could modify your dash and put in a LCD and then just have a nice setup going with the diagnostic software, dvd, and GPS system if you like. Basically in car computer that you can also remove and take it with you on the go.
