Most bolt on mods are pretty cheap. Get a TTR upper engine mount and you'll feel some improvement right away. I started with my suspension. Springs/shocks control arms, sway bars, strut bars etc. For engine Mods go with an intake/intake manifold, full exhaust and a trifecta tune. All are really easy mods and you'll feel a HUGE difference!

Also here is a good place to start if you are looking for some inexpensive things to do...

It will stiffen up te engine so more of the engines horsepower will get to the wheels.

0-60 but any cheap easy mods i can buy and install would be great.

I was thinking cold air intake? will that give me any kind of boost?

You'll get noise!!! lol

If you are serious about 0-60 times, your best bet would be to open up your exhaust for probably a 12-15 hp gain. Or a quick and easy 0-60 boost is next time you are due for tires get some 195/45-15's, if you now have 195/60R15 now this will give you a 10% change final ratio. This would be the equivalente of bolting 20% more horsepower at the wheels. If your pushing 150HP it now feels like 180. You will dramatically increase your 0-60 but kill top end.

But you will need to drop your car for these to look good also you will need a Tech2 to recal your speedometer.

You'll burn everybody at the lights.
