Well basically I have about $1800 to play with. I have read a few threads and a lot of people just saying turbo is the best way to go but because of my age I am unable to drive a turbo vehicle for another 4 years. So basically just want things that are relatively cheap and effective in improving performance

Intake and exhaust maybe suspension mods are usually the first things to do.

Honestly I don't have any, mine is stock since it is my daily driver I have another car for fun, I personally would never try to make a 4cyl a performance car, well maybe another 87/88 Ford Thunderbird Turbo Coupe lol.

I knew that would come up lol. Yeah they are pretty legit, I knew a couple guys with 600 whp evo's, but they come setup pretty awesome, I kind of want to buy and evo 9 for the wife, but as far as mods for a Lancer, I would say save up your money, learnt to have fun with this car maybe someone will have a great recommendation for exhaust and intake, and after a few years get a skyline or if you like any HSV vehicles go for that.

That is just my suggestion, but I know different strokes for different folks.

Yeah you guys have the Falcons out there right? Thos have the 5.0 in them, yeah FPV makes some awesome vehicles, I wish we could get FPV and HSV here, I am not a brand specific person I love Camaro's they happen to be my favorite car, but if it's fast I love it. Not really into modding 4 cylinder cars, but that doesn't mean I don't respect a nicely built one.
