FocAus88 I have about $200 to spend and dont know what to get.

Bare in mind im in Australia, and from what i can tell, everything cost way more here than in the US.

Im not really into a lot of cheap cosmetic stuff, so is there much i can do myself that will make the car run better, give it a bit more power?

Im just starting to learn to do things too, so it cant be too difficult.

micahroecker Hmph. There's a lot you can do for $30< but I haven't found a perf one I like yet hah

sailor You've got an automatic, so the benefits would be small.

I wouldn't actually bother on yours, except for a little more vibration you aren't likely to notice the change.

$5 hood strut from a buick in a junkyard. This is probably my favorite!

And a traction control override switch. Like three bucks!
The hood struts, they fit alright? Also what kind of Buick and a close up pick?

5 bolts & you have 19lbs in your hand. Then you'll see the oil feed hole that needs to be plugged. There is a bsd plug & egr delete in the bst right now, super cheap.
