How would you spend $300 on mods if you had my car?

If you had my car what would you spend $300 in modifications on next? I'm bored at work and I'll be ordering something by 5 pm but I haven't made up my mind yet. Any ideas???

If you don't have them already.. I suggest both GS urethane tranny and engine mount.

I can't express enough the improvement they've made. Better shifting under load and better acceleration (seriously).

6pt brace if you don't already have it. You can take the money left over and donate it to the board for more bandwidth.

If I had 300 dollars to blow and an hour with your car, Id invest in a road flare, a tank of gas and a disposable camera...no more black 9-3's with catalog kits in my neck of the woods.

i would split in in thirds, and send 100 to me, 100 to crowley, and 100 to ryan...as our cars are clearly faster and probably more in need of 100 bucks to go faster!!!
