welcome Jorge, we have the same year and model, as well as color! Here is what I've done to mine so far... CAI (cold air intake), Flowmaster 40 catless divorced dual exhaust, and some appearance mods. I plan on getting a tune next, and start saving for some new rear differental gears. It all depends on how much you want to spend as well.

he didn't say anything bout a GT.. Not everyone wants to hear when they ask a question oh just get a v8.. Some actually like there v6.. to the OP dude there are alot of things you can do visually and performance wise.. Windstar upper.. Cold air.. exhaust .. Tuner.. that be a great starting basis.. Or Just depends on what you want.. NA "naturally aspired" or a FI " forced induction" build in the long run.. Generally FI such as turbo or superchargers or pro chargers are the easiest ways for performance but don't go crazy on stock internals... Stock setup can handle a boost up to 11lbs but wouldn't go over 8..

And my budget right now is pretty low. I just got fired and I wasted all my money on buying this car and the rims plus sound system. Should I sell the rims and sound system?

I agree if power is what you want save for a GT....been there done that so i dont blame other guy for saying that. Now since your budget is nearly zero lets see those wheels...could be a good idea to sell depending on what they are

I would start off with the CAI then exhaust, you could also do performance chips, theres lots. Do some research first about what effects it'll have on your car. Now as of your speakers, i'd sell them and use the money for performance and then get you a smaller sound for now then later get bigger ones again.
