Name your favorite single mod, whether it be a great cost vs performance, or single best pure performance gain, appearance, etc

Mine is simple, undersized pulley to overspin the blower

Short throw has always been a favorite in any manual car. Much better feel and engagement. Adds a ton to any type of driving.

My contour has a short throw shifter and it's the only thing I don't like about the car. So HA.

Mine would most certainly be my wheel/tire choice for the Honda 2000.

Another vote for short throw here. Adds so much to the car.

I like mods that are factory parts from other cars.

In general, my favorite mod is tires. They can completely transform how a car drives.

On the TA, though, the mod that made the single biggest difference was the torque converter. With the stock engine making 275 whp, a 3600 stall took a half second off my quarter-mile time.

If you want a relatively cheap mod and an instant, noticeable change, toss in a bigger rear gear.

A tune. Stock PCM/TCM calibrations typically blow donkey dick.

Electric cut outs. Especially on any v8 or LS vehicle. Best money I have ever spent to be able to drive nice and quiet when I want to just relax, and then flick a switch and it's an open header racecar

As of right now a 3.73 gear. That 2.73 made the car a bore to drive.
