What is 'mods' anyway? Plastic stuff that you stick on the car? Are they to make other people know how cool you really are? Or you want to go faster?

There are only a few common 'mods' that will make you faster. Diffs or tranny swap, motor work/SC, headers/race cats and suspension. The rest is maintenance/repair or plastic stuff that you stick on the car.

If the car doesn't need any maintenance, start with lightweight wheels and top rated tires. Then the rest of the suspension and exhaust. Then you can actually say the car is faster and handles better than before it was ragged on by a stranger for 130k miles with 15k mile oil changes.
