Long tubes, cams, maybe wheels and tires. I wouldn't get a tuner from bama. I don't think they'll send you a tune because you have some head work. You could get a tb/plenum, weight reduction stuff, LCAs. You can do suspension mods without lowering your car. Maybe look into lowering your car only 3/4"-1".

Long tubes. Cam. And dyno tune to top it off. That's all over $1000 but long tubes and tune would be close.

I personally think halos are ugly...but that's my opinion. Projectors I like but not halos...

Change out the sensors and electrical components. Replace the items that breakdown and cause problems.

Headers are by far the best mod I've ever done.

Do cosmetic things like stripes, rocker panel stripes, deck lid blackout, custom wheels. My brother spent around $350 bucks for all his stripes for his Mach 1.
