Also, performance wise i'd appreciate it if someone could tell me what i should get in order to boost my performance to maximum performance...please list your cheapest ideas first followed by more expensive..also..i've just been wondering this for awhile..what exactly is a "ricer"? thanks!

keep it clean, just drop the suspension a bit and get new wheels and tires, whatever you choose and make sure it looks good on your ride...dont get those over-riced mods...i suggest JDM or Spoon...but if you want the cheap approach, rather have parts fabricated...


there are a lot of sites..but he should still choose what he wants...get the cheaper ones...are there any on ebay?


i bought most of my performance parts on ebay except my rims but you can get whatever you want on there for a good price

Go on eBay and search for what you're looking for ....that is crazy on eBay but to be honest is really good pricing.....aftermarket parts is usually expensive at performance store Search for you make and model and you will find the difference
