what should my next mod be

this is what is done to the my car so far.

Wings west body kit (skirts and rear mid wing)
Short throw shifter.
home made ram intake
Tune from tom
taylor thundervolts & motorcraft coppers
my eibach pro kit comes in this week
i pre-ordered jayracing 2.5" hfc.

i believe that is it.

im going to black out my side blinkers.

but im thinking maybe 67mm throttle body

other than that im thinking light weight rims and good tires.
--
i want to have a good set-up for my first autox event.

thanks
any suggestions are welcome
im open to all ideas

Get motor mounts, i have all the same mods that you do and i have to say i love my motor mounts the most, if u don't like the vibration just get the lower tranny mount, but mounts will make a huge difference in drive feel and shift feel and are very good for at the track too, no more wheel hop just solidness ;).

Oh and think about sway bars as well if ur eibach kit doesn't come with it already, made a bigger difference in handling than the actual shocks and springs in my car.

the skirts and wing were already on the car when i bought it.


i halfway like the wing because i see a lot of red 02-03 svtf
and it sets mine aside so you know its me haha

and i have the 6-spoke svt rims for now.

Since you already have a few WW kit pieces, my recommendations would be...

Wheels:


WW Fenders:FS: Front Fenders from WW 2004 SEMA Car


and RS Brembo Brakes/Suspension:FS: RS - Brembo Kit from WW 2004 SEMA Show Car
