Ok i have a terrible dilemma on my hands
. My mother is spending 1000 dollars on me for christmas and i dont know what to get
. Think you could come up with the best solution to my problem? I am shooting for performance, i have a couple of ideas but let me know what you think. I have intake, MAFS, exhaust, ignition wires, cat elem, crank pulley, and ummm maybe thats it, oh yeah Jet ECU. And i have an auto, so tranny upgrades are in the question too.

Go for a tranny upgrade and aftermarket torque converter. Or you can pay a little more and get a head package.

I definitely think that you're tranny is your most important upgrade. I'd either get the torque converter, or switch to a manual tranny, which is a little more difficult. Working out the head is also a very good option. For $400-500 you could have you head ported and polished, add another $500 for valve springs/retainers and stage 2 cams and you could have something pretty decent on your hands.

Tranny mods are going to eat all of your $1000 in one shot. See http://www.levelten.com/
