Looks like some decent performance mods have already been done. Might want to do a little more in suspension to make the ride feel good but there should be plenty of power there for a daily driver.

It really depends on your tolerance for "daily driver" not a lot of people would can their daily driver, but then there are people like me that want to engine swap their daily driver.

Depending on how aggressive you go they move your power up higher into the rpm band, which means it's a bit more of an annoyance to drive at lower rpms.

Something like a stage 1 or 2 cams, either Hi-Tech, CMS, or Comp Cams.

With cams you'll need a dyno tune and likely new valve springs too. Not worth the cost especially if you have a shop do it.

Here is what I recommend for a nice NA 2V street car:

-Midpipe/Catback, leave stock manifolds
-Lowering springs/good set of shocks/struts
-Max Motorsports CC plates
-Shifter if manual trans, j-mod if auto
-4.10s
-Trick Flow Plenum/TB
-JLT cold air
-Pullies
-Steeda Subframes
-1 range colder spark plugs which would be an Autolite 103

For a 99/00 you are also going to want to look into swapping in an updated PI intake manifold if it isn't already done because they didn't get the updated crossovers and the old style plastic ones WILL crack.

Now... you can also get a tuner but beware canned tunes. Lots of people swear by them. I honestly would not run one (and don't) without a wideband so you can make sure your canned tune isn't running some wonky AF ratio. I'd be willing to bet that half the ppl running a canned tune from one of the big name places are not stoich and don't know it because they don't have a wideband.

Better acceleration, less lugging 5th driving down 45-50mph roads and the RPM difference at cruise is about 200. Not much. Mine has 3.73s from the previous owner and they need to come out for 4.10s (or even 4.30s). Or I'll go back to 3.27s or 3.08s for just driving the car because that sort of gear is much more DD friendly if you aren't looking for 1/4 times.

Short but again, not a ton shorter than with 3.73s. If you are worried about having to shift out of 1st after 3-4 seconds after a hard launch then I would stick with 3.27s lol.

I would suggest lowering springs. It makes it feel good and nice. You don't drag on ****. Lowest it'll do is 1.75 lowered.
