After looking carefully through your extensive list, I'd have to vote for a new camera.

-Used FMIC
-New Camera
-Spend it elsewhere (Besides your car). Since it's your daily driver, the more you mod it, the less reliable it becomes.

Damn car looks so good. You could also get a front sway bar with endlinks..maybe a new set of shocks since you don't have any with your lowering springs. Maybe do a camera mount if you're into that type of thing? Get a protune if you don't already have one. But your car is def. super nice.

i like cheaper wheels so when i drive enthusiastically and curb them i dont shoot myself in the head. dont get me wrong advan rz would be my weapon of choice, but i cant justify spending that much on something that gets chipped on a daily basis. (proud supporter of rota). I also like the idea of new struts as i have heard they make a huge difference. now do i go with tokico d specs or the good ol inserts? also does anyone run front and rear sway bars? and did you have just the rear first? i have heard the front can be more of opinion type mod but which one isnt well keep it coming i love what nasioc has to share. plus you guys give me ideas that i wouldnt think of. like camera mount! sick idea

On a VF39?! You can run up to a GT30R/GT35R on a big TMIC and not lose spool. It's just a matter of opinion, but that's the last thing I'd do personally.

The first thing I'd recommend is Motul fluids - oil, transmission fluid, brake fluid. I've seen too many successes with Motul and too many failures with Redline to think any other way. Lighter weight wheels and tires make a huge difference too. I'd also recommend an anti-lift kit instead of a larger swaybar. Should do exactly the trick.

I would also recommend getting motor/trans mounts, and some other driveline bushings. They aren't too exspensive and they make a huge difference.

Group N stuff is great for the money. I have the trans/motor mounts, pitch stop, and rear diff mount.

The diameter is still really small and less than optimal in the stock one. Aftermarket's not a requirement but it helps. Tokico D-Specs are pretty awesome...so are Bilsteins if you can find them.

For the grounding kit...DIY. Theres a good write up on it. Don't you dare pay ~$100+ for a kit. lol AP protunes are only ~$300 around here. I don't know why it would cost $700. That's a ripoff IMO if its really that much after you'd already paid for the AP.

I have been to COBB numerous times, and it is still $700 to protune even with my a.p. plus my tranny is fragile and i dont know how much more it can handle...... I thank all of you for the awesome responses and am looking into everything in depth! anyone have any expieriance with any harness bars? i am thinking of getting some sparco seats in the near future also, the new r100 looks like a pretty good deal on rallysports site.
