What to buy the Paycheck

Ok, Spend my paycheck. Well spend about $300 of it. Here is what I am planning on getting, just can't decide which to get first.
New Intake
ORP
lowering Springs
Motor mount
Thinking I am going to get the ORP and motor mount. But not sure.
What would you get?

None of that shizzle! Is this from one paycheck or is it saved up? I would keep saving for some forced induction or a full suspension.
SVT already made the exhaust aggressive. An aftermarket exhaust will provide more negative attention than accelleration. I don't recomend springs without shocks and camber correction kits. The ORP is illegal.

OK, well I am decided on new motor mount for sure.
Can't decided between new intake, cam gears or UDP.
Going to hold off on the ORP until they get the flaws fixed. Then I will pick up one for sure.

I'm lost too. How does a motor mount make you go faster? Are you missing them?
