The next upgrade will be possibly a 4G94 engine swap because the one that sits in there now is reaching 140,000 miles. Definately an exhaust system, but Im not sure the brand... maybe Ill go with HKS or a Magnaflow. Next will be the headers and then cold air intake.
Once I have these upgrades I will then buy an intake manifold and cams, then I will work on suspension and breaking.
I can get a 4G94 engine for $1500 and hopefully it will be able to handle boost above 6 psi for a future turbo project.
Ill look for an exhaust around $700, but a magnaflow is very reliable at $400
I will get the headers for about $500 and a Injen RD cold air intake for $250 and the intake manifold for about $800
After all this is finished I will probably work on the interior and exterior styling and then finish off the car with a nice HKS turbo kit
Dude, after you're done doing all that, you could have just went ahead and bought a fast car to begin with...
