If you remove the oil cap there should be plenty of room to fit a few Benjamins.

First thing I'd do is find the search button- $0.
Second thing I'd do is find something that's broken, then fix it- $893.
Third thing I'd do is find something you missed in step #2, then fix it- $285
Fourth thing I'd do is buy an exhaust, intake, and chip because the 323 really responds well to them

Replace your cooling system if it hasn't been done.

lol my car is already chipped, has a nice k&n cai, week old tires, cooling system. the only thing i really haven't put money into is an exhaust but i don't know enough about them to get the right one. plus i really like how my car sounds. i finally have some extra money and thought about putting it into the motor but i guess there really isn't any need.

Why dont you spend the cash monies on lighting? Get some depo's all around, and some clear/smoked corners/tails/sides?

Hows your sound system? I'm not talking subs and all that, i'm thinking back dash and door speakers. Just to get a crisper sound.
