You want to make the car faster? Then attend several driving schools - Skip Barber, Bob Bondurant. Then start attending open-lapping track days. Buy a few sets of tires to burn off at those. There's nothing else you could spend on that will give the same results in making your car faster. Not only that, but it will make EVERY car you drive faster, AND safer. Best investment ever.
Life is too short to drive boring cars!

You know, performance upgrades as substantial as FI aren't as simple as just dishing out the cash to purchase them...you're gonna need to tune the car too...you might have assumed or know this by now...so understand i'm not trying to insult your intelligence...just saying that it won't be just a one time payment of 10k or whatever, and that's it...you're car will be running in the 300hp range for the next 100+ thousand miles...be ready to factor the possible funds for that in too...
