the misses stated that i could use about 500-600 bucks on some simple mods for the ride.  i dont have much as i am a teacher and i am not trying to do too much to the car.  my boy (duece) is still stock and i had him since may...13000 miles and feeling like a rocket...

i just want to know what would be the best mods to do with the mere budget that i have..(keeping in mind i want to keep it as stock as possible)

thanks for the help! ;D

Welcome Rukie!

Well, you say rocket... so I'll assume a speed3? If you're not looking to do anything over the top I would stick with simple mods like the LED kit for the interior lights, shark fin, maybe some small performance upgrades like an intake or an exhuast... but then you start getting the bug lol. What are you into? Speed? Sound? Visuals? It's all simply a matter of personal taste.

Update your profile info so we know a bit more about you, and post some pics of your car so we can give you some input!

A Cobb intake, Forge BPV, shifter bushings and rear motor mount inserts are best bang for the buck mods if you are stating with a stock car.  LED interior bulbs are a no brainer.

The Forge BPV is the best BPV out there. There have been many that have gone with another only to come back to the Forge in the end. The sound it makes turns some off but the performance is not in question.
