You could try advancing the ignition timing a bit and running better fuel. That doesnt cost anything at all and there's some decent power gains to be had

If your handy with tools, make up a good flowing cold air intake.. doesnt cost much to make.

get some cheap stainless steal and sheild ur pod filter from the hot air. Coz its doing f**k all right now.

get some clear indicators. (35-50 bucks a pair i think).
GT boot from ford, which is the leather over the gear nob, looks heaps better(25bucks)
New gear nob ( 30 bucks)
that should do :)
not awesome upgrades but deifnately make ur car feel and look better.

Defianatly shield the pod... even better is to mod the factory box so it fits inside it and run anouther pipe up into the bottom of it

I can never understand why poeple go to the trouble of making up mounts and pipes for a pod filter and then have it there sucking in all the hot air from the eng bay... its just pointless and reduces power
