What would you guys say would be the most noticeable performance mod for a 99 3.8 with a 350 budget
If I get springs is there any thing else I would have to get along with them?I've have experience dumping large sums of money into a 3.8. There is nothing that I did that really made a worthwhile difference, except suspension. Big money is required for a noticeable HP performance increase. Well, except nitrous. But I digress. Suspension was the only area where there were very worthwhile gains in handling. With your budget I'd personally grab a set of quality springs. You'd still have a few bucks left over to boot.

It's would be smart to do shocks too. I prefer going with the fox body struts and shocks when lowering as they are shorter than the new edges. Also depending on how low you going camber will need to be addressed. And don't forget the alignment.If I get springs is there any thing else I would have to get along with them?
I've been keeping a close eye on Craigslist in my area, sadly no crazy deals, if there are even parts available...A couple years ago the 7.5 in my old V6 blew up so I took the opportunity to upgrade to an 8.8 with 3.73 gears. Scored it for $150 on Craigslist. Best mod I'd ever done to the car.

I agree with neither. If you have a $350 budget save another $50 and pick up an SCT X4 from Bama with custom tunes. It'll be the biggest noticeable difference on a stock/near stock car without diving into gears and suspension.Which one would you see the most gains out of as far as speed for the 3.8 99, a cold air intake or accel coil packs?
What exactly does the SCT X4 do?I agree with neither. If you have a $350 budget save another $50 and pick up an SCT X4 from Bama with custom tunes. It'll be the biggest noticeable difference on a stock/near stock car without diving into gears and suspension.
If yours is an auto the shift points and shift firmness will be very noticeable. The car won't be gapping Cobras but it will feel much better over stock.
