cat-back exhaust for just a lil more or at least some sort of muffler just to make it sounda lil better but with that money u could do a UDP and short shifter it would be tight but u could do it or a 65 mm throttle body those are good gains i hear but for real I would start with intake and exhaust same as everyone else or lower ur car...u maybe able to get sprint springs for that price or eibachchs

thanks foci...my ultimate dream is to put a turbo in...ive had many ideas...me and my friend have been contemplating now that we see some of these foci with 5.0 motors in there...i was thinking possibly getting 4-2-1 headers...but i guess i should start with exhaust

$ 300 isn't a big budget, I would save till you can afford some more things.

300 bucks can get you alot of stuff if you spend wisly!!!!

100 bucks on UDP
40 bucks on Spark plus wires
20 bucks on shorty antenna
110 bucks on flex pipe

or you can just get a cat back for 300!!!
