suspension mods always make for a fun dialy driver. Then I/H/E if you wanna get some basic mods, but then build/boost if you want real horsepower, and lots more money time, research and probably down time as well.

Be aware most suspension mods make the car turn better, however the ride is stiffer and you feel more bumps usually.

do the suspension and brake uprgrades first then if you decide you want some real horsepower look into turbo's nitrous and N/A ie (cams head work high comp) If you get boltons and decide to go turbo later down the road your header and intake will be useless. Exhaust is always a good thing (cept for the tickets) larger exhaust for a turbo and smaller for N/A. Research into them and make your choice then.
