Wallet friendly mods?

What mods can I do to my t-bird that wont put a dent in my wallet? This maybe a odd question, but since the $2100 trans, I dont have any money left. Ideas and comments are welcomed. No mod is too big or small...as long as it dont put nice dent in the wallet :P

Thank you in advance.

Here's what I'd do:
Remove air silencer--free
K&N panel filter (not the FIPK)--$40
U/D pulleys--$120
Catback--$200 for the dynomax

Other than that, all my experience is with the 4.6, but there's a ton of stuff out there for the 5.0.

Air silencer.
Yank the A/C or Smog pumps
Pull the spare tire and all the junk in the trunk
Underdrive pulleys
Gears (sort of wallet friendly... well, not really)

i agree, with the exception that the pullies should be pulley...not plural. the kit includes an alternator pulley which is useless. i bought just the ASP crank pulley from summit for like $75. you might want to spend the $200 on a custom exhaust. i had the dynomax, and was disappointed...especially in the sound dept. couldn't hear anything. to each his own.
