Cheap performance

Well I have a 98 Neon DOHC as you all know. On ebay me and a friend just ordered a few cool vynils, and eyelids for my car, but now that I have money coming in, I want to work on the performance. I am thinking about a Short Ram Air Intake System, on ebay for 45 dollars delivered. Now a friend told me about performacne chips, bu they decrease gas milage. What are some other upgrades I can do. Please no farting mufflers, or turbo, because I dont hvae THAT kind of money. The car only has 63.5k miles on it, and that is pretty low, so I want to do something special with it.


P.S. I hope my punctuation in this post appeals to you. *Cough* oomba *cough*

Anyway if you all have ideas please post them here. Maybe some small tweaks here and there.

Damn, show me a picture of your car then before you criticize everyone about how eye lids and vinyl are for ricers. Your bad typing seems like a ricer to me mr. Know it all. I have eye lids on my car and vinyl, and I see nothing wrong with that

then you sir are a RICER. I drive AMERICAN and the bodys of all my cars are in stock form. The joker i was ragging on has no performance mods. his car is all show and no go. hes got neons (in a neon) on the inside of his car because the ones for the outside are to expensive. so to make things worse he is a cheap ricer. i would show a picture of my car but i dont have a digital camera or a scanner. what do you drive? i dont see any pictures of your car!! huh, dickweed? how old are you? wait let me guess, you are 18. the perfect age to think all that crap is cool. you will grow up and realize that they dont look that good someday.

Whoa, chill pill there glagon. He wants proof that your car is non-riced. You cant talk shit until you prove it. I could just as easily say I drive all american cars with no modifications whatsoever.

You do realize that even upgrading your stereo removes the "stock form" tag? I'm sure you've done this. I know I have, because I can't stand the stock stereo sound. Last time I checked, stereos are not rice, unless you are stupid enough to think that loading your trunk with subwoofers gives you more traction, making you faster...especially in a FWD vehicle...

i did say that the BODYS of all my cars are in stock form. the thread is about EXTERIOR mods, and tacky ones at that. i will admit that i have upgraded stereo equipment in the past. now all i do is throw a decent CD player in and go.

Except that its ricey.

Seriously, if you are making so much many with this 100k a year on ebay crap, put down the money for a rebuild kit and a turbo.

So doing body mods is ricey? Even if you drive a street car that you feel is more than fast enough already?

Underbody neons may be done by some ricers, but they aren't ricey, as they dont' replicate a race car (like, say, fake BOVs, oversized exhuast, fake intercoolers, huge wings and sponsor stickers on stock vehicles). They are custom mods that were actually around a bit before the ricer scene started.

Hey man don't let some of these people try and talk you out of what you want to do with YOUR car. They don't own it, and they sure as hell don't have to look at it. Your car should reflect who you are, not what others think is cool, or gay. I'll admit I have bashed on some 89 Hondas w/ a huge aluminum wing on the back, but I don't go and announce it to the world. If it's what they want, good, let em' do their thing...

So to put this to end again I'll say it, screw everyone else, do what you want w/ ur ride man.. don't let a few jackasses prove you otherwise...

And before I get flamed about what I drive.. haha.. pick a car boys... 96 s10 w/ 4.3L Vortec; 4'' lift, American Racing rims, nerf bars. 2001 Toyota Solara w/ TRD sport package; Injen cold air intake, strut, 17'' Chrome Boss rims ... and lastly 92 Subaru SVX .. nothin' really special about it.. other than it's fairly rare...
