Default What Should I Do Next?

I've opened up the exhaust, so what should I do next? I have about $85 I can spend on performance upgrades(Not much, but some)! I know about the CAI(Rice Pipe), and want to know if there are any other options for my price range. Thanks!

It will keep your engine lasting longer by keeping the operating temps lower. It'* a basic mod everyone should do.

I agree with Sol, get a 180 t-stat. Otherwise the intake should be the next thing. Now that you have it farting better, make it breathe easier.
