Once done, you should have enough to buy some sway bars which are the best mod you can do.

Yah I got a few things I should update to be safe in the future. But why would I do cooling system? My car NEVER runs temp needle in the middle (12 o clock) unless Im sitting in traffic forever or not moving at all... or flying around in 2nd gear. Most of the time Its right above a 1/3 of the gauge. (11:30ish) I left In the heat of south florida and came back up to ga and it held that temp pretty nice... by the time I got back it was at like (11:40) Id say the cooling is the last thing Id be worried about???
