What are some inexpensive mods that are fairly simple?

Hey I just joined and was wondering what I can do to my d23 to make it faster?
I am installing a racing clutch, I have a cold air intake, and I plan on getting toms tune. I have a turbo charger but I don't know how to put it on so I'm selling it if anyone is interested.

Suspension and good tires are good mods. Lots of info here though!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^that would be great. and some lighter wheels.

not sure how in expensive you are looking or if you have a stock exhaust you can do a "lunch box delete" placebo effect mostly. You have a manual so a short throw shifter mod, if you look around you can see some one has a write up on how to do both. doesn't really make the car faster but but it is something you can notice and feel pending your driving style.

DIY shifter costs $5 and does the same thing as a $100 short throw shifter, also poly transmission mount is very cheap and helpful, BSD is cheap and helpful for the 2.3.

balance shaft delete. The 2.3 is the only motor that has it.
