What to do?

Ok, well X-mas is coming and I have some money to work with. Im not sure what I want to do. I dont want Gary to be beating me the the 3.8 this spring soo, I have come up with some ideas.
1. Go for appearance, finish of my car with a Saleen Heat Extractor or Cobra R hood, and Saleen rear and sides.
2. Edelbrock Performer, 70mm TB, 3.73's --> N/A Power Hell yea
3. Just get to the good stuff and Supercharge It -->
4. Saleen Rims, 18x9 and 18x10.
5. If you have your own Ideas tell me.

Im still not sure if I want to go the N/A route or Boost. Im not to happy with my performance now, and I think a S/C will make me happy for a while, and I can get some gears on there too. Tell me what you would do. Im going to have about 1000 by January to work with, and if I sell my paintball gun another 700-800.

start by putting on all the mods in your attick, then get a tri-ax(i say that because you said pro 5.0 sucked), then some 3.73's(at least), then HCI and all that good stuff, then appearence, then blower

So far Im leaning toward option #2. I think I should complete all bolt on's and then strengthen the bottom end.

well, if you sell your paintball gun and have $1800 i say H/C/I and gears if you can get everything cheap enough. you could build your H/C/I combo so it would be decent N/A and badass with boost and then start saving up for a s/c or turbo. why are you so anti-turbo though? it seems like all the 'stang racers are finding the limits with their s/c's and swapping over to turbos now.

personally, i'd go NA mods first, then if that doesn't do it for you, boost....

they're is alot of hidden fiends with boost... you'll have 50% less problems if you stay N/A then again when I say boost I mean like 16-20 pounds of it, lessor amounts are probably alot safer hehe
