180K miles...should I even bother to mod the car?

1992 Crown Vic, ex cop car, new tranny put in a few months back. The question is, with that kind of millage, is there any point in mod'ing the car? I'm looking for an Impala SS kind of presence, but since I drive the car for work, I can't dedicate it to racing. (IE, huge gears and ultra high stall convertors are out of the question.)

Thanks for you input...

Wouldn't hurt to go to a KnN air filter, drill holes into the air box, allows a bit more air flow, tiny bit power. Change over to some better flowing pipes/mufflers.
