What sacrifices are you willing to make?

I think what we are trying to get at is this...

When modifying a car it makes things much better to have a plan in mind, as specific a goal as possible. If you wanted to build a drag racer...that's easy to figure out. If you wanted to build an SCCA competitive car...that's easy to figure out. If you want to build a track race car...again easy.

But if you are like me and this is your daily driver, yet you still want more from it...it get's more complex.

The factors to think about...
-How much are you willing to spend?
-How much streetability are you willing to sacrifice?
-In what manner are you planning on using these power mods? In other words...are you going to go to track days? run the 1/4? Auto-X? Street race? Canyon carve? All of those? (note: I said "power mods" but it's best to think of everything suspension, body, interior, etc)

Once you have the idea in mind you/we can develop a plan which would include the right sort of mods to get.
