Tax money mods

So, ill be getting around 1000.00 back on my tax return and am pretty much looking at a stock car excluding two Pypes M80 mufflers and a Hurst short throw shifter. What would be ya'lls recommendations for mods? Handling and power are the idea of the big picture. What yall got?

I've always wondered if my car already had one tune because I know there isn't a speed limiter on it. Unless it's just set hire than my speedo goes to. I know I've been over the stock 140 at the track but don't know what my top speed actually is....

I would still suggest intake and tune just so you have a tune and know what it is and who it is from. After that you should have like 400 left over

Our cars a electronically limited to 142mph. If you look at the speedo closely it has two bars after 140mph...

As Nate stated a CAI and tune would be the cheapest performance upgrade.

With the money left over you would be close to lowering springs and a panhard bar

Thanks for the ideas guys. This is my daily driver but since I'm also on the local fire department and end up running my car as a UC also its necessary that it be fast but handle well.
