Got 250 to play with

What's the best upgrade to do for 250$ ? I've just got it to blow, so what would you get? accessories or performance?

Cold air intake, or a tune (if you can find a place to do it cheap)

Get a dyno tune. It works wonders. Are you looking for performance or cosmetic?

Or just get adjustable LCAs if you're going to lower.

I think adj control arms adjust length wise. The relo brackets actually change the angle. The adj control arms don't adjust angle wise you need the relo brackets for that.

The relocation brackets are necessary because fixed length LCAs can't be lengthened. Therefore in order to keep the axle in the correct location relo brackets provide a location for the LCA to reach and maintain proper location

Adjustable LCAs allow for the length to be changed and the LCA to use the original mounting point and maintain the proper axle location.

So they both allow the angle to set properly. Adjustable LCAs don't require relo brackets to fix the angle.
