Hey,

Welcome to the site :)). Most people that i have read on here start off with their air filter, plugs and leads and exhaust systems like a Lukey 2.5'' Catback. The best thing I have found is to just read read and read some more. Check out the show off your ride section as most people show what mods they have done to give you plenty of ideas. Hope that helps :)

Hey mate I'm pretty sure you could get the spacer and insulator from mace, a catback exhaust and then a memcal tune to suit and this should make the car alot better to drive.
I dont have the mace products or a memcal but it's what I've read. That should give it a nice boost :)

$800

1:9:1 rockers = $450
2.5" cat back = $180
25mm manifold spacer = $220

Thats $850

If you can afford a little more

Lukey air filter = $40
Memcal tune = $70-100+

Because he can afford a 50kw boost or a turbo for 800 bucks...

And I didn't mean boost literally, but it will give him a bit more power and drivability for around what he is looking to spend.

The best bang for your buck would be diff gears. You may not notice much in et's but it will certainly keep you very happy on the street. A set of 3.9s or 4.11 will have you lighting up the rears with ease.
