Well I just got done with my first mod of installing a new t-stat, and I would like to continue my moddifications. I have about 100 dollars, and I would like to do something to increase the performance. I was thinking air intake, but if someone has a better idea please share.

Besides a tune up, that is probably the best way you can go

Yeah, if you havent recently a full tuneup is the best thing your car can use now, that intake wont do you much good if your engine isnt running to its fullest capabilities. Change the plugs, wires, tranny fluid, engine oil, flush the radiator if you can. After that let the mods begin!

What year is it? You might be able to gut the airbox and try pulling the MAF screen. Free, and it will give you a bit of feelable "oomph" at launches. And the sound.. Every once in a while I turn the tunes down just to listen to my baby suck air in.

But, then the wife starts up, and I gotta crank the tunes up again....
