extra cash

Santa left me about 300 bucks under the tree this year, and I've decided that there is no better way to use it then to make the cougar a little quicker. So...... what are the recommendations of the masses on what my cash should go for.

Thanx, and have fun

if you havent done anything yet. i'd say save up about another $75-$100 and do the jmod, tranny cooler, chip, colder plugs, and colder tstat. the cooler is recommended with the jmod and the plugs and tstat are required with the chip. the chip and jmod have been my two favorite mods. makes the car feel more like a sports car and less like a the huge grandpa car that everyone thinks it is.

I say screw all that, do a cooler, JMOD (basically free minus fluid cost) and a stall converter (add another hundred or so to what you have).

the jmod and cooler cost me about $140. $50 for parts, $50 for a cooler and $40 for mercon v.

how difficult would u say it is to put in a converter? i think that is going to be my next mod.

Right now, the only thing i have on my car is the dynomax cat back system. I've decided to wait on the chip until i can get the GT maf too.
