What do you have in mind? Lowering your car gives it a nice customize aggressive look, only go 1.5" or so. Of course rims and rubber are the single most effective way to modifiy the look of your car. Tints, higher end lighting, interior lighthing, racing stripes. It really depends on what you want to do.

Make a list of items that you want to address. At least then its easier to direct you to good sites. Are you more interested in the show? or the go?

If you wanna haul *** on a budget...without getting into major engine mods. I suggest

Cold Air Intake
Exhaust (Cat-back is all good)
PCM chip
Higher end ignition
Wires/plugs

Check out our vendors, they have lots of kick *** goodies for you. take a look at the links section for addresses

I'll let the other pros dance here for ya.

If you went with an 80 Series flowmaster with a 2.5' pipe with no res...you're laughing, it'll sound great. Not ricey at all.

I basically have the same system. High flow cat, 2.5" pipe, to a Magnaflow muffler. I also posted an audio clip of the exhuast to give an idea of how it sounds. At least it will give you an idea of what you can do with yours

My old school 1996 Canon Powershot 600 digital camera has audio recording capabilities. Just like some of the new cameras can record audio/video...well my cam is the grandpappy of digi cams.

The quality leaves something to be desired, but it gets the point across
