Buy & install a new fuel tank, sender, high flow pump.
Larger injectors
Save enough to buy an intense LSD & Stage 3 heads with 1.8s for the spring
And maybe track down a good shop for doing custom 3 exhaust even though my current exhaust is only 7 months old
And many other odds and ends with this money pit

firebuick, I can appreciate the fact that you're motivated to do some work on your car during the winter months, and those of us in Ontario know how cold it can get in Montreal. I have to tell you that I absolutely hate working in the cold. That being said, I have to motivate myself to get a list of things to do to the car also. Oh.........ya, did I tell you I hate the cold?
