$700 To Spend

I came across $700 to spend on my car. I already have AEM CAI, Esslinger UDP, and a sct tune. What do you think I should do next?

You definitely need the STS and mount! Actually, does anyone know if there is much difference between the rear mount and the poly inserts that go into your stock dog bone? Is it worth it to go for the whole mount?

since you've already got the STS, i say you get a suspension upgrade. springs, dampers, and whatever else you can get.

I have the Prothane inserts installed in my factory dog bone and I love it, very noticeable difference and they were only $15 plus shipping from C-F-M.com and they weren't very hard to install. I don't have a vice so I improvised using a hammer and a 1X4 on the concrete edge at the entrance of the garage where it raises up about an inch. I hammered the factory rubber inserts out and hammered the Prothanes in then hammered the center pieces into the bushings. The whole operation only took me about 40 minutes and that was also pulling the mount and reinstalling it.
