Hey nice AU falcon mate. There are many modifications you can do to your car, all generally 'cheap' but expensive as a collective. It all depends on what you are looking for, looks, performance upgrades?..
I have made a list up with a few common modifications you might want to look at...

For looks you could go down the following path:
*Tinted windows
*Altezza Tail-lights
*HiD headlights
*Spoiler
*Rims
*Interior LEDs (any colour)
*Body kit (this is a little bit more expensive)

You could look for a new stereo system:
*Head unit
*Amplifier
*Subwoofer
*Tweeters
*Wiring

Performance you could look at:
*Cold air intake
*Air filter
*Extractors
*Cat-back Exhaust
*Suspension upgrade
*Pulley kit

Hope this helps.

start with Cam and extractors with a cat back system then.

from there, tune, suspension. Your wallet is the limit.

VCT or non VCT?

If it is performance you are looking for, here is how you will find it :D

http://www.jimmockmotorsport.com/mail_order/DEV_EA-AU_4.0_Mail_Order.php
This link has the price list of parts for the AU falcon (excluding shipping and installation costs). You can use this as a price guide if you are planning on visiting a workshop closer to home.

Judging by the topic title you must be on a budget for your car. You should have a look at the 'DEV' kits available (read next paragraph) and see how they start with the basics and progressivly include more complex and expensive modifications. That way if you intend on upgrading your car piece by piece, you can start with the essentials first.

Jimmock Motorsport have a series of 'DEV' kits available which include a combination of modifications designed to maximise the power output of your car depending on how much you are willing to spend. Here is an example of the kits available for the AU falcon:

*DEV1 - 116rwkw - DEV "Street-Fighter" Headers (Extractors), Modified catalytic converter, 2.5" Hi-Performance mandrel bent exhaust system, Performance spark plugs, Custom Dyno testing & tuning - $1290

All the way to...

*DEV5-SS - 175rwkw - DEV "Street-Fighter" Headers (Extractors), Modified Cat, 2.5" Hi-Performance mandrel bent exhaust system, Hi-Flow Intake Kit, DEV5 Cam Kit, valve train modifications, Vernier adjustable Timing Gear. "Race-Series" Head, extensive porting and head performance alterations to race standard, compression increase and Special valve springs. All installed with new gaskets & seals. JMM Ultimate Sequential Computer installed. Suits Street / Strip applications and club racing where daily driving is still required. - $7350

Hope this helps...
