lol for some reason i dont think a 16 year old can aford to go turbo just yet.
If your gonna go performance with a small budget id just go with a set of pacemaker extracters and 2.5" zorst system to start with, and to make it look pretty throw on some 18"s. that wouldnt be much more than 3K
put some pics up

body kit - venom front bar, xr side skirts and venom rear
if its got any side moulds on, get rid of them, unless there red since they would look nice on a dark blue car.
yeh get a better exhaust
18's or 17's and make sure there shadow chrome, or shadow alloy
tinted windows
if the mirrors arent matching, get some matching coloured mirrors
get sum clear side indicators and some altezza tail lights
thats all i can think of right now

new car andyour running rear stockies.... practice up to it, dont thrash it 100% for a while or you might not have it for too long.

yeah $700 for all that is ok, as long as thats fitted.

some good cheap mods.
- paint door mirrors
- clear side indicators
- upgrade the woefull stock brakes (dba's)
-if you dont tow trailers, remover the towball bit.
- better rear speaker shelf, spacers suck
- if it sees burnouts, a transcooler

hope these help

p.s. welcome to fordmods

hey nice car. do stuff that will be benifical to the car when u up the power. i suggest u upgrade your brakes and suspension and a cat back exhaust. then look at a body kit like a venom kit with no boot spoiler. then at a later date if u want more go to much the show u will have the better brakes and suspension all sorted and if u only go a cat back exhaust u wont loose money by throwing away a set of extractors.

mini spool, 4.11 lsd. just make sure the car is fully insured. the transcooler was a good idea aswell to make your tranny last longer is it auto.

Do your exhaust, but at the same time get a finer filter, and a larger snorkel, and maybe a strategically placed bore in your filter box. Let her breathe. It so much better cruising with a nice note behind you .

IMO do more significant things then clear indicators... save ya cash and get some rims... they look nice but u cant beat a set of 17-18" rims... and go shadow for rims... look at my gallery... the best mod of all.... look after the bastard!!! :D

I would say, get a set of wheels (Shadow Chrome, no smaller than 17"), Pacemaker 4480's, 2.5" Mandrell Bent exhaust, Clear indicators, paint the mirrors, Superlow fronts, Ultralow rears, and better brakes
