D'oh, forgot to add this to reply. I'd start by removing the intake silencer (free) and then adding an aux trans cooler and an in-line filter. Those are some pretty common and relatively in expensive mods that a lot do.

I would also suggest just taking a look in the garage at other cars and you can look at the mods they have done and start to make a list of things you might like to do. Don't hesitate to PM them if you have questions about a mod they did, most people around here are more then welcome to help you out.

Yeah, higher quality break pads will also take care of this.

You'll definitely notice a sound difference accelerating or at WOT with the intake silencer removed. Some will say it adds HP, I'm more inclined to believe it just feels like that because of the meaner sound. To each his own.

hey so you detail
what of products do you use?
I have a detailing business on the side, yes (it's not my real job ;) ). I use a LOT of different products from a lot of different manufacturers. It depends on the condition I am working on as to what I use. If you have specific questions I have a sticky up top of this forum for detailing questions and will be glad to answer :)

Most chips come on the hood, unless you are tearing down gravel roads a bunch.

What's that white stripe along the trim on the side of your car? Is it a sticker/decal or paint?

i is just a pin stripe sticker
If it were my car i'd take that pin stripe off, the white looks out of place on the car. But if you like it then more power to you.

Welcome!! Nice looking car! :thumb:

I would take the mud flaps off. Ford started putting some kind of protective layer under the paint on the bottom of the cars in the early 90's. It seems to work well. The mud flaps won't help you much.
