Default Best Performance Mods for 350Z

Hey guys, first of all sorry if this is a repost i tried the search several times but came up with nothing. Ive got an '06 350z enthusiast with a k&n intake, HKS true duals and hi-flow cats. I spent about 6k on my mustang i recently owned just making it look good, I decided this car i want to go with performance mods rather than exterior/interior mods. Anyways, i'm wanting to spend around $1,000 so f/i is obviously not an option. Just wondering everyones opinion on the best bang for your buck performance mods. Thanks

I'd pick up some grippy rubber, best mod for under 1000

Dude you live like 30 minutes from Injected... go there give them your money and say more pOWWA. That should take care of that money and your issue

ive got the high-rev motor so from what i understand i have to do the MREV2 along with the spacer in order for it to do any good so i thought about going that route. What type of tune would you recommend?

Best mod for the Z is updating the driver's skills.

Before you know it I'll have the only Z left......

its a used car, upgrade the suspension componets.. was the biggest bang for my buck ever on the car. power is one thing, but ov erall feel and satisfaction came from stance lx coilovers, solid bushing in rear diff ( they have add ons now, easier, cheaper), whiteline polys for the LCA, new comp rod bushings.. all put, was about 1300 bucks INSTALLED becuase i made friends and connections w local shops.. which you should do w injected.. since someone said they are local.. ive never dealt w em, but ive heard of em.

How about wheels and tires? Just a little out of range, but a nice RPF1 is so much lighter than stock and helps performance
