What mods are left to do?

Well i have been on this forum for a while and have done quite a few mods. So far my mod list is as follows:

Dual exhaust
CAI
Rear Sway Bar
Eibach Pro-kit
Mach 1 Grille delete
Painted Stock Wheels

Known Future mods:

Black housing Headlights
18" Black bullits with a chrome lip
Maybe a tuner
Maybe mach 1 lip

What i really want to know is what is left to do? I really don't want to dive into the motor yet because this is my only mode of transportation atm. I don't want to do any mods over $300 and i don't want to dive into the engine yet. any ideas as to what other bolt ons/suspension parts i could do that aren't super expensive? My ultimate goal is to have a fun, corner carving DD.

For me getting a tuner from AM made the biggest difference of all my mods

sub frame connectors might be coming but they will take a while to install. Lowering springs are already installed (read more carefully please). Shorty antena will most likely come since its only like 20 bucks. Windstar is over 300, longtubes are over 300, gears are over 300. do you people not read or something? damn.

black housing head lights. Dont even need a new pair, just some off a junker will be fine.
Could tint your tails if your going w/ the black out thing

Window tint
Tail light tint

Shorty antenna is free

Gas pedal mod is cheap

Auto: tuner
Stick: Short throw
I know tuner is over 300 but would be worth the extra spend if you can save a little
not sure on short throw prices

junkyard windstar manifold and make your own brackets. Boom, windstar for under $100...

But start focusing more on suspension Lots you can do because right now I can tell you your car isn't a corner carver. I have close to a grand in suspension work and mine still has room to grow. Definitely do the SFCs. Max Motorsports has them for $130, and they are about $150 to install depending on where you go and how much prep needs to be done.

Get the metal ones, not powdercoated. You have to grind the powdercoat off to weld so just wait and paint afterward.

The sixes do have udp

1999-00 Mustang 3.8L Underdrive Crank Pulley And Harmonic Balancer at LRS - Same Day Shipping!

2001-04 Mustang 3.8L Underdrive Crank Pulley And Harmonic Balancer at LRS - Same Day Shipping!

They aren't worth it for the price tho, VAP Auto's Phenolic Intake spacer gets about the same gains for just about 100 bucks

a lot of attitude.

LTs are easily under 300, windstar can be had for under, gears alone are under 300, maybe you need to read more
