    Very broad question.
    What are you looking for in the end? If your talking performance mods then you will just have too make sure one mod will go with another. ex dont get a tune and then add a cam. get the cam then add the tune.
    What are your limits in the cash dept?

    Performance- Intake, full-exhaust, gears, tune.

    Appearance- Wheels, Lowering (I would suggest lowering the car to desired height before doing exhaust, so that you can work the exhaust fitment around clearance.) Traditional stick-ons (Rear "Camaro" fills, tint, etc.)

    I'm not into the appearance. I am looking for performance. At the moment I'm looking for some bolt on's to start out. An intake perhaps would be my first mod. Is there any intakes that you all recommend?

    Lid($90), SFC($275-$300 installed), LCA($Same as SFC), PHR$90 install yourself), and Headers& ORY($500 from Texas Speed, $350 for install) + CB ($300-$750)of your choice. How much $$$ you have????????? Port your own TB, do the TBB and FRA! mod yourself. Lower the rear an inch for free doing the heater hose mod.

    What is the heater hose mod? And maybe spelling out the mods instead of the abbreviations would help the newbie. Or point out the right info source?

    Doing performance mods are a lot of fun, especially testing them out. The first and most important thing to do before any performance mods is to put on a good set of sub frame connectors! The ridgity gains are minimal but it's enough to protect your car from the moment you install them. There are alot of arguments about which ones are the best but I physically held in my hands several different makes for comparison and I was very inpressed by the triangler ones made by SLP. Those were the ones I went with. By the way, they were bolt-in type and only had taken me 20 minutes to install. But I've been a mechanic nearly 25 years so it was elementary to me. One thing that I would advise if you get those. Don't use thier wimpy grade 5 bolts, washer and nuts. Pick up some grade 8 in place of them and increase the torque spec by 10 lbs. ft.
