or get a bunch of paper and draw out of an intake.... i mean hat... but the dart idea isn't bad... have someone write them down. put it on a board and throw a dart. whatever one it hits do it. if its cheap. throw again!

with $500 you cant get even close to everything he just said =p not if u want good stuff anyways. personally, if I had 500 I'd get an intake, header, flexpipe, and exhuast. but you'd probably have to save up a little bit more

^^^lol, he wasn't saying all of that, but was throwing out all the popular under $500 ideas. even your combination would take a decent amount over $500.

in any case...me? i'd probably go with some tint and an intake. and have a few dollars left over. suspension would be great, but if you can't install it yourself or have someone to do it for you, you're likely to be over $500 by a good bit if you go with a quality setup as well. but of course, if you can do it, there's several options for right around or just under that amount.
