Default What should i buy next?

Alright so i have a 2003 GT. Its got a tri-ax, mac cat back, mrt catted h pipe, throttle body, plenum, intake, gears.

I have about 1000 to spend as of this friday. I want to buy something for my car but cant think of the other bolt-ons there are

-cant get headers or nitrous (warranty)
-dont want udp's

I was thinking about getting some black bullitts, and painting my spoiler satin black. Instead of getting that, what would you guys recommend on the performance side of things.

- I know that speed is better than performance but i feel like im out of options for speed at this point in time

chip/tuner, suspension... thats about all i can think of as far as bolt ons. but you would definetly be happy with some new rims and tires.

chip/tuner, suspension.

that or an aluminum driveshaft came to mind, but i dont really throw my car into turns anyway so suspension would technically be a cosmetic thing anyway (lowering)

I could always just save up and not waste any money. . . [sm=badidea.gif]

Headers LT........SCT Tuner..................75 SHOT.................<-ok I read about half of you post then scrolled to the top and read the rest haha no headers...or nitrous huh crap! I guess I would lower her down some and buy a tuner maybe throw some cams but I am not a fan of cams in the 4.6l unless you have heads and a built motor with some sort of juice or f/i...so I dunno really.....sucks about the warranty man =-( because then I could help ya out. o btw if you cant find anything else just write me a check and I will throw some stuff on mine i.e NX, and Headers it want void my warranty haha because I dont have 1.....=-) Get the UD. to heck there a bolt on. Lot of bad talk but heck I think there worth it. (electric water pump) just a suggestion

Pay some off the finance if you've got any.

If you don't have any finance try actually waiting until you want something instead of trying to find a way to waste the money. Is it burning a hole in your pocket or something ?

My vote goes for a tuner. You mentioned that you had gears, do you have a speedcal or something to correct the speedo?
