Alright guys, I have $400-$500 left in the mod budget until the end of the summer. Other then the mods I have in my sig what should I get? I really perfer performance mods to cosmetic mods, and nitrous is not an option (can't spray with the tune that I am running). What do you think?

Hptuners would solve your secondary 02 codes. Sounds like you plan to do more mods. Also would save you some fuel with a lean burning setup at cruise and detune TM, crispen throttle response... Could recoupe costs just in fuel savings. :)

WITHOUT QUESTION DO THESE MODS : THERMOSTAT (25 BUCKS) ; PORT AND POLISH THROTTLE BODY (100 BUCKS MAX) ; AND A OEM STOCK Z06 CLUTCH AND FLYWHEEL SETUP.

With the clutch and flywheel setup, your car will feel 200-300 pounds lighter with better throttle response and better all around shifts etc. The thermo will allow your car to be kept cooler (a tuner could also advance the timing a little more for maybe a 1-2 rwhp increase. The P n P on the throttle body will cripsen the throttle response even more, and while it doesnt necessarily show hp increases on the dyno, a MPH and a tenth or two will be picked up at the track with the P N P alone.

look on ebay, great deals to be had, just be patient. 01-04 z06 setup. I believe Rey has one, he loves it. Im waiting for funds, then Im for sure doing it. Supposedly it gets rid of some of the heavy shift feelings, the car feels lighter, and the hesitation between shifts is minimilzed (most important IMO, I hate that dual mass flywheel)

he did request performance mods only, hence my list, however you should get a wheelhop kit.
