Well I have been reading thread after thread and searchin for more threads, but once again I find myself stuck with no clue where to take this. Well I have 3k to spend on my 88 5.0 as far as mods and upgrades. I have read some threads that say start with the exhaust, then some say start with the top of the motor, then some say start with the suspension. And all give good cases as to why. Then you have the posts where something is said like "it doesnt make sense to this if you have not done that". So I basically want a lil push in the right of what could be done with my bone stock 88 htchbk with my current budget. My end goal is to have a sweet and fast street car that wont be driven daily but maybe like 2-3 times per week (350-400 rwhp would be nice). But I want to make the most of this money I have now because I wont be able to drop anymore lump sums anytime soon, just kinda nickel and dime for a while. Please advise, also if you could throw out some brand names (maybe links) with your suggestions that would be cool, so I can research those too!
