Next upgrade ideas...?

Hey. I just bought a 03 SVT (zx5 style), with a Pworks SC with only 30k miles for 6k. The car is in great shape. I dont plan on beating it or racing it, it's to be my commuter car (with a lil'kick!).
The only thing I'm thinking it needs, is a carbon hood, for the following reasons:
1. Could shave about 40lbs off the weight (which means I dont have to!)
2. The vents/scoop on the hood would greatly help expel heat while sitting in HOT static traffic.... did I mention... HOT traffic?

The car is black so the hood would blend right in and not 'stand out'.

Any other options that would work better then a hood? Remember, I'm not going to be beating/racing the car.... ummm... often

Thanks!

40lbs from a CF hood is wishful thinking. Expelling is good though!

Thought about a short throw shifter, high flow cat, Tom's tune (includes free updates)?

I'd suggest a drop, perhaps a short-throw shifter, perhaps some tint, and a Euro grill for starters...
