So Many Options What Do I Do?!

I've recently fell into some disposable income, say, around the range of 2,000 dollars. I don't know where to start. What should I do. Mind you I've only done a shitty Spectre Short Ram Intake as far as mods. First things firstm replace that crap, but then what?

If I had some spare cash...I'd be looking for a Trifecta Tune! After that, tinted windows and then projector headlights with HIDs all around!


Yea, tho I cruise through the valley of the shadow of rice, I will fear no Turbo,
for Torque art with me. Thy rods and crankshaft, they comfort me.

Injen CAI-250
Vibrant header/downpipe-600
Tsudo cat back-260
Eibach sway bars-300
DC Sports strut bar-125
Trifecta tune-250

Total-1785

That should give you plenty of powering and handling plus leave you with some cash to get your windows tinted

Agreed, then you will have to get another tune after all performance mods are complete.

Start with a new factory made intake, then start on exhaust. I would not spend all of it, keep a bit in reserve for emergencies.

If you're very good at planning and piecing it together, you could supercharge your car for under that.

^This.^ Minus the Tsudo exhaust...Not a fan. More than likely save a tad bit more and score a Borla or DC Sports Catback.

I haven't looked into it yet but F/I was an idea proposed by a friend of mine with an LS, just not the S/C route.

I'm not exactly sure how the rods on the LAP are, but if they're anything like the L61, you will want to watch the amount of power you're pushing if you go the turbo route.

If they're forged like the LE5 was, then have at it.
