What has been your #1 Mod to date?

Just curious to see what everyone's favorite mod to their boss has been so far. I know it's hard to pick just one. I've done the MGW shifter, tiger racing hood, rear window louvers, and LS spoiler. Although I love the feel of the new shifter and don't miss the 2-3 lockout...I would have to say I love the way Paul's hood changes the look of the car. I know it's just cosmetic...but just looking at it on these cold winter days puts a smile on my face. Can't wait till spring. I have some hood pins to install and a JLT oil separator...looking for a couple more mods to work on while I have her in hibernation. Thanks

The tiger hood is not just cosmetic! It's functional too.

I would say my "favorite" mod so far is my APR carbon fiber wing I put on, but probably the #1 mod in terms of performance, for me, has been tires (Hankook RS3's).
It's a hard question to answer actually because so many mods work together.
 
My #1 mod has been installing the FR P springs and associated parts. This lowered the car a bit and stiffened up the ride. It reduced body roll and brake dive and makes the car feel more planted with less unnecessary movement when pushing or tracking the car. This is how I expected the Boss to feel from the factory. This is not the end all track setup but provides a nice compromise between the two.
 
I'd have to say the MGW shifter, then the stereo swap. The rest were pluses but didn't make as much of an impact as those two. The electric cutout's for example stay open all the time.

X2....well said.
 
electric exhaust cutouts...love having the ability to quiet it down if I need too. Next is a one piece driveshaft!
