OK so far I have a Volant cool air intake, MagnaFlow exhaust, FCTB, Eibach sportline springs, Enkei CDR9s, and a nice stereo
What should I get next or what would be the next logical upgrade...I don't want a chip though...
thanks

He already has the TB, I would say cams with adj. gears or a race header, flex pipe combo

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Yeah...all of them :) UDP, cam gears, and race header with flexpipe. Good gains

i'd start saving for a turbo... and sell all the stuff you have.

okay, seriously. You can get everything you need from Focus Central.

3 piece pulley set
Race Header
Flex Pipe

They will offer you a little bit better price as well if you buy all that stuff I believe. If not, see who has the best prices. Good luck. Maybe if you wanted, you could get yourself a Diablo Chip or something to remove those pesky speed and rev limiters.

The header and flexpipe, and the UDP are all recommended mods, BUT the Koni's will give you the most improvement for anything but dedicated drag-racing.
I'd certainly recommend the UDP. AF/X is only around $100. GREAT bang for the buck. Prothane "Motor/Tranny-Mount" bushings are only about 20 bucks, and will help you get more power to the ground.
Are you looking for "Daily-Driver" Enjoyment, "Improvement in the Twisties", Better ET's at the strip, or something to tell other people about? Your answer will help sort things out.

would the cams make my car any louder? I don't mind it being too loud but I don't want that bumblebee sound!

Yes this is my daily driver, though it's parked in a deck most of the week! I like drag racing, crusing, and auto cross so basicly I'm looking to mod my car so it performs well in almost every area
it that's posible

If I had 600 bucks I would make some more car payments. I HATE HAVING THIS MUCH DEBT!!!

Or I would get UDP and a CAI, maybe a TB, but I'm not convinced.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">That's why I suggested Konis above. If you can't go fast through the turns, you can't go fast.

i second the race header and flex pipe from f/c...they do have a deal saving u like 50 bucks if u order both at the same time:)...i just did..hehe...that will make ur car loud, but nader has some mufflers to quiet it down...and u will lose lil if any hp...and if you go with the udp...go with the crank pulley from afx...but if you have a system and neons...etc...it will cause dimming...i dont even have one and i dim as it is:(

definitely go with the crower stage II cams if you have a manual. i have an auto with several mods and it rocks! mods are: pacesetter header and exhaust, esslinger udp, fc cam gears, crower II cams, 180 thermo, random technology high flow cat, fs wires, and open intake. very good mod for the money

How much noise would cams add, if any?

I'm liking the Koni idea and the cams with cam gears idea... but is there anything else besided udp, cams, race/shorty headers, and flywheel?
Thanks to all for your help thus far

maybe a 6speed:)...anyone know how much that would cost for our cars???...say maybe rip one outta an svt...how much would it be to put it in a manual..or convert an auto?...also you could look into the venom 400 i think it is...my friend put one on his 01 cougar and you can feel the difference for sure...its kinda like a chip...but i dont think a dealership can tell if u have it or not b/c it doesnt change ur code:)
