at the moment im saving like mad to get my car up to scratch, over the course of this year its gone downhill due to work (over) commitments, and focusing too much time on getting everyone elses cars going hardcore, and not looking after my own.
its not that bad but its not good enough :p
anyway, i have two options:
fix the exterior/interior first, then save up heaps again and do the engine
vice-versa (engine then interior/exterior)
i will give a little more detail of what im planning with the two though, so you can give a more educated reccomendation :)
Interior/Exterior - replace a few trims that arent the best, new door seals, get the steering wheel re-covered, new windscreen (its scratched heaps) repaint front and rear bumpers and paint and fit front lip spoiler again, fill the holes in the boot where the spoiler used to be, get discreet louvers cut in bonnet to aid in heat dissipation at racetracks (yep, it heats up when lapping at 10/10ths)...and thats about it i think :S
Engine - pull out old one, get head ported + matched cam (looking for 250hp at wheels) get AU bottom end, serpentine drive belt+ancillaries etc etc etc, V8 EB radiator, new extractors (either the latest paceys or JMM ones $$$!!!!) port the TB, get ED intake manifold etc etc etc....
both things will cost lots of $$$, but which should i do first?
Slick, Quick and Fulliii SIK!!!
