I've got some money.. Whats Next

Hey all,

Finially got some money in the bank. Not sure what to do to the car next
I've got about $1k

So far i've got the following:

**1995 Series II EF Futura Sedan**

* 3" mandrel bent CAI with pod filter (No airbox on it and its not seperated from the engine bay)

* 2 1/2" Geni Sports Exhaust from the cat back

* Pacemaker Headers

* Crow Stage 2 Cam

* Been lowered

* Done the stereo

* DBA Slotted Rotors (FRONT ONLY)


My Question is what should i do next

Should I.......

* Change the diff ratio from standard futura (3.23 i think) single spinner to a 3.45 LSD diff

* Finish off the intake system by buying the airbox, some XR6 grills/fordmods scoops (Not sure what one yet) and connect the lot up and put the pod filter into the airbox so it gets cold air not hot air off the engine

* Do the climate control mod now that i have the climate control unit

* Convert the car to manual

* Chip it

* OTHER??

Any opions/suggestions?

I'd love the car to go faster or a new gadget to play with inside the car
but i just cant make up my mind what to go for

What do you guys think? one of the above or something else?


Cheers

Adam

Well, for me, the first priority would be the stereo but since your content with that, then I'd say convert to manual. Would be the single most noticable power gain modification you could do from what you got listed, but may end up goin a little over your budget...

Manual conversion was on my mind before I read Rmyers post.

Re: I've got some money.. Whats Next

What wheels do you have on the car at the moment? If you have stock wheels I would get a set of mags. If you're happy with the current rims, then I would put the money towards a manual conversion.

Definately the manual

A diff change now might bring out the benefits of all your other mods, but a manual now then a diff change will leave you smiling like.....well....you'll be happy.

you could also look into some porting to suit that cam/exhaust combo?

Re: I've got some money.. Whats Next

ok,,well it all depends..do you want looks or peformance? Thats the first issue.

If I was you Id be getting new rims if you still have stockies.

And then while your at it get rid of the 3' zorst and get a smaller one as from what ive heard 3' is overkill and you dont get out as much power of say a 2 3/4'. Something about loosing back pressure. Just what ive heard anyway.

either way your not going to go wrong.
