id say go a decent set of extractors, then go a 3 inch cold air intake,

how far do u really want to take this car? because a cam would follow those mods, really depends how far u want to take it and hwo good with your tools u are

if thats as far as u can go on your own mechaniclayy u can then look into lowering your car or fitting rims to it, maybe a big sound system etc

dont need to go 3 inch intake. you dont have a 3 inch throttle body so no point having a 3 inch intake pipe. get an AU intake pipe, and put an EL GT snorkel on it.
stage 2 cam, set of headers. should do alright from there

I agree 100%.. do this, especially the cam and zorst, and cat..
slip a flame thrower on the pipes too...
Maybe look at a mod chip too, you will need it for the cam.., maybe some port work too.. and keep everything Motorcraft...
Do the tappets while your there so it doesnt make that embarrasing ticking..
xr6 head?.. f**k IT.. GET A TURBO!!!

its kinda attached to the air box cause u need to cut a larger opening for the intake. so tryin to sell the whole thing unless you jus want the air box without the air filter?
