You mean top end or 0-60?

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!

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

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.
