RMM (Rear Motor Mount)
Rear Sway Bar
Steeda Short Throw Shifter
I would only change the short throw shifter with a steeda intake. I'm really pleased with the shifts on the stock throws. But eventually a short throw would be nice.

JL330 You'll get the hang of it.

ripto Ok thats good then. I still need to look up info about the RMM and sway bar. I really only get jerking motions when accelerating relatively hard, especially from 1-2. I still need to experiment with how fast to let the clutch out and when to give it gas. It seems like my issue would be more exaggerated with a short-throw, since I would be ready to accelerate in the next gear quicker, but the RPMs haven't dropped as much.

I'm not sure I can do either FSWerks exhaust, the stealth or race... they both seem kind of ricey to me from the videos I've seen.

I'm not sure what RMM is or how swapping the rear sway bar helps out.

Short throw shifters are cool though, although since this is my first manual vehicle besides a motorcycle, I think I'm still trying to figure out how and when to correctly shift without getting those jerking motions.
Short throw won't effect your learning curve here. That was my first mod on my mustang and it was my first stick car. You drive in traffic for 2 weeks, you'll be a pro. It comes really fast.

Sonic_HedgeHog You can ask around for opinions but you'll probably get similar answers for $1000

Sonic_HedgeHog Yep, Magnaflow Muffler... Vibrant resonator... Exhaust tip

The Rear sway really wakes up the stock suspension...

The stock RMM is trash and you lose a ton to the engine movement... By far a good RMM is one of the cheapest, best mods esp with the MTX75

ripto Sorry, I meant below. I'm assuming that middle piece is the resonator. And no doubt I still need to do more reading, I've only just started this week.

Sonic_HedgeHog

There's nothing above the muffler

You may wanna do some more reading if most of that didn't make sense LOL
