    Yeah depends what you're looking for. I did mainly appearance mods first, but here's what I did. Maybe you can find something...I know some of the performance stuff is obviously more than $300 but that's what saving is for right

    Completed...

    Custom FRCs
    Custom lid
    Brass headlight gears
    Decals
    Custom floor mats
    Embroidered headrests
    White gauge overlays
    Clear sidemarkers
    Chrome caps in engine bay
    Engine dressup covers from TSS (battery, pcm, fuse, tcs box)
    Custom plates
    Strut brace

    Next...

    LT Headers + ORY
    Stall
    LS6 intake
    Strano lowering springs
    Koni shocks
    SFCs
    TT2s + new radial drags
    Cam
    Tune

    well i was thinking about buying a set of Patriot Gold valve springs, right now while i have the money and then buying the cam a little later. but maybe a pair of subframe connectors (not sure to get the weld in or bolt on type) would be good to get now. dont really go to the track at all, its just a DD.

    It's a DD and you're getting a cam? You should probably get a stall before the cam but then again it's a DD right?

    Dont even think about a cam right now if all oyu have to spend is 300 bucks. Buy it as a package deal. Buying a set of valve springs and looking at them for months will not be money well spent. Buy the cam all at once (package deal), and thats going to run you over a grand plus tune. SFC are always a plus. These cars need them, badly. Forget about the bolt on, buy some weld in(your choice of brand really) 2 or 3 point. That will be money well spent.

    Headers is a great mod, but does not require tuning really. You will need o2 extensions. But SFC, Headers, and a Stall should be your first 3 mods IMO.

    The bitch is you can get a stall for around 300, or headers for 300 but you have to facter in labor and or tuning. Gears would be great to but labor is a bitch.

    Get Sub frame connectors or lowering springs....or like you said save up and get pacesetters....It all depends on what your priority is, speed, handling, or appearance.

    Install on gears shouldnt be more than 130 or so. I think I was told slightly under that for my 4.11 install on my 12 bolt.
