Talking What to buy with tax money?

Yay...tax money is comming back soon. I NEED to buy something for my fofo. I am going to have about 800ish to spend...but I dont think I will use it all. Currently I only have an AEM CAI for my auto 2.3pzev fofo sedan.. I was thinking about getting catback exhaust. Anyone have any opinions? Anybody else spending tax money on their fofo?

I would purchase the catback exhaust, and depending how much I get I'm going to get my header installed and with the money left probaly purchase the SCT chip for the car.

I'm thinking I'll treat the SVT to some Tein springs and maybe a rear sway bar myself. Catback is great to add some character too, I like mine, but where I live the police dont seem to care.

He'll be filming his speeding, probably with the speedometer in range. If nothing else he can use landmarks to determine his speed. Seems like a real waste.
