New clutch, flywheel, plugs, plug wires, whole new ignition system if you wanted, engine mounts, cams (when they do come out), predator tune, cam gears, exhaust cam, throttle body, those are just a few that i can think of. Don't worry! Theres a huge list, you'll never be able to run out!

I got to run these colder copper plugs cause of the nitrous..had been thinking bout engine mounts...dont think a new clutch before the old one is worn out will make my car any faster..
but I was looking for some of those zex spark plugs but they dont make them foe a zetec yet

Actually a lightened flywheel and dual friction clutch can make as much as 2 tenth's difference in your quarter.

Valves, valve springs, exhaust cam gear, plug wires (10mm) new radiator and other cooling components, lighter wheels (which makes a huge difference) and the list goes on and onů

Yeah, that lightweight flywheel is the 1st thing I would do. (If it didn't take me out of my SCCA class I want to stay in for now.)

Quaiffe LSD, Port-N-Polish, Balance-N-Blueprint, Polyeurethane Bushings, Carbon Fiber panels, Big Brake kit, stand alone engine management, etc. etc.

Lots more mods you could do.

Lightweight wheels and drivetrain components are the biggest things I would do. You wouldn't believe the increase in response and acceleration! And you can get more power out of a well-tuned ECU if you have more rev-ability. (Don't know how, but that's one of the things the Porsche engineers was talking about when they upgraded the 996 GT3 MKII. You'd probably need a real ECU expert to capatilyze on that, though.)

The lightweight flywheel isn't really invasive, scary, or expensive. I think the Flywheel itself is only $350 or something, and it's not a lot of labor to put in. For the money, it's a great mod...

I don't know where you'd get quality lightweight wheels for $100 a piece. Really good wheels are $300-$600 apiece. But it looks like you have gotten to the point when you have done almost all of the inexpensive bolt-on stuff already...

What kind of tires are you using now?
