Okay everybody, I don´t want to start any fist fights or anything, but I´ve got a quick question for all of you.

Okay, as far as all around performance goes (i.e. - gas mileage, horsepower, torque, etc...), what would be the best upgrade (around $1000, or less) for my car?

Feel free to post, even if what you say has already been posted.

Okay, this is a personal opionion, but for $1000 (less then actually).

Even better then my turbo upgrade.

DBA slotted crossdrilled rotors, EBC GreenStuff Pads, and steel braided brakelines.

I rate it better then the turbo because its saved my arse so many times, and its safety. Safety is always a good upgrade. It was easy and took me about an hour to do the hole thing and unlike the turbo I didn´t have any probs. Although I dont have the steel braided brakelines yet, and they will take longer to install. But still....my opinion on best upgrade.
Yeah, my post might of come before, but I was thinking along the same lines.

I like the brakes, and that was done even before the turbo. It was also a project that helped me to learn how the calipers, pads, lines and everything worked together. I learned how everything came apart as with things like the wheel bearings and such too. And it was a good project for purchasing a couple extra tools that come in handy for future work.
