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

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