First off im 17 and have a part time job so i cant be putting alot of money into my car. I however would like to do somethings..The previous owner changed it to a 3:73 and put in a short throw shifter as well as a few other minor things. Are theyre any mods you can think off that are affordable that are worth it?

Look at my sig for other mods.

Check out www.mrt-direct.com. All my mods were done thru these guys. You can order over the Internet. Call them and ask for Dan Garn and mention my name (Bill Flynn).

ya springs are a great mod to do for the price if you do it yourself. its not that hard with a helping hand. If you do springs i recomend H&R supersports. i dont know if your car has bigger wheels and tires but you could always save up for a while and buy a new set. That was the first thing i did and it took me a while saving up while working at the BK lounge or as most people call it Burger King. I was glad i waited. But then my Bullitt was faster than all my friends cars hands down at the track so i went more for appearance than performance.

If it were me.....

I'd do as much as I could to stiffen the chassis of the car to make the most of the suspension. I'd start by welding in the stoutest sub-frame connectors I could find.

Then lowering springs unless you can afford to go to coil-overs.

I would suggest suspension mods as well. I think you get more bang for your buck + you can "feel" the difference much better than normal bolt ons, unless its a blower.:)

I havn't done much on appearance but here are some things i have done

1.) custom license plate (~$45)
2.) 3 piece mach one grille delete kit ($105) or ebay stores ($70)
3.) get some HID's off ebay stores, i paid 160 (euro efx kit) ($160)
4.) tail light tint from stangmods.com ($60)

performance:

1.)JLT cold air intake ($220)
2.)A new x-pipe sounds good (price varies)
3.) r1concepts.com cross drilled and slotted rotors ($400)


I dont know much about suspension work ever since my brother dropped his truck and afterwords it felt like your were floating on the highway bouncing...

+1 on the subframe connectors.
Standard length subframes from Maximum Motorsports $79.00 (bare steel)
Clean them good with a can of Brakekleen 3 or $4.00
Prime and paint them yourself $10.00
Get a shop to weld them on for you (for me it was $180.00) If you know a welder buddy your good to go.
