Lots to spend on my car next month

Been working hard, long hours, overtime, so this paycheck will be big. Wondering what i should do with my pay. Im going to be getting alot more than i usually would be getting, so that money, i will be sinking into my car.

Few ideas floating around in my head...

Coilovers + Black straights
T16 with rebuild
VVC head with solid cams
Mk2 conversion
Strip and Cage

I mean, been wanting to do the T16 for ages, so i think, now is my chance, if i dont do it now, i will never do it. Id trust AAautosport for the rebuild to make it as smooth/ reliable as possible. However, i love the appeal of a low car and also ive been wanting to cage my car for ages... but i dont think i can justify needing a cage. Also with my age now and NCB, i can insure my car as a T16 or with a tuned N/A.

These are the two big players. I actually cant decide, a brand new set of coilovers or a turbo. May settle for new blacks and a turbo. But i do want to be low. I also wanna be quick. fk.

One of the top two!!! Depends whether looks matter more than power, or vice versa though mate.

I was always a looks before power man, only really started to concentrate on performance once I had the car looking how I wanted it

Handling > Power > Looks for me tbh. My car looks dirty as **** 95% of the time living in the country constantly commuting down single track roads so heh.

Whatever you do, its not going to be a bad choice by the looks of the list

Quieter than the VVC was. One thing for sure is the guys will do the job properly

Also, coilovers can be picked up for a lot less at a later date than a turbo conversion can be.
