Help me figure out what to do next

I just sold my old car and got enough to pay off my Focus with about $1k left over. I am debating what to do with the leftovers.

Either:
1) Save it for Clutch/Flywheel/Torsen + install from Steeda, or for a built motor and BBK

or

2) Go with some other mods:

- FI cams (I'm thinking McNews) and gears
- Header wrap
- Livewires/Screamin' Demon
- 3" MAF housing and cold air style piping to SC
- Tune

Current mods are PWSC, FocusSport 4-1 header, 2.5" cat-back exhaust

Someone direct me please...

cfm flexpipe asap. clutch/fly/diff before everything else. if you do the build and bbk, the transmission will never ever ever ever be able to handle that. i think you and i are really even testing our limits as it is. did you ever get to the track btw?

Tell you the truth, save enough for both options. Cost will be cheaper for installations since the engine will be apart.

I tried to go to the track Friday night but we got rained out.

I'm using the FocusSport flexpipe right now, I can't imagine the CFM one would be noticeably better.

Alright, guess it's time to save up some cash. Steeda told me $2200 for the transmission work and my "shopping cart" of build parts looks around there too.

I guess I'll just go get it dyno'ed this week and see what numbers I'm putting down. That and the track for sure the next Wed/Fri that it doesn't rain. Track is about an hour north of me though, and this is Florida, so it can be a beautiful day here even if there's a hurricane at the track.
