if its multi pint, pull the airbox, and fit it to the end f the tube, thats what most boxcar owers do.

as for mods, loose the 3speed auto if it has one.
then read.

manual (cheap used parts) $650
manual (properly new parts, cept box) $1200

dont go 3" exhuast, unless your always running high revs ittl suck, 2.5" is good for the low reving i6 we have.

exhaust will set you back $250>$1200
$250 for catback
$1200 for catback a good one, hiflo cat, good headers

lsd is always a good mod, as i will also change you diff gear ratio, ala making the car launch MUCH better.
~$500>800

allthis is dependant on what you can do yourself.

ie read through that link i gave you, it should help

That's a lot to spend for little improvements. Buy an ef/el instead for $2-3 grand

firstly dont bother with a pod, the panel fitlers flow better, if ya wanna mod the ea get the multipoint conversion done with the airbox and XH snorkal, then the gearbox to manual, extractors and 2 1/2" zorst. Then do the cam....
