    The next steps are highly dependent on your goals for the car. Also, are there any aspects of the car you are unhappy with? If were me I would probably go for bushings (shifter, pitch stop, transmission mount, diff inserts, etc), maybe sway bars/end links, if I wanted to stiffen it up. Are you looking for more power? Either way, it would be a good idea to get some good tires...that was the upgrade I am probably the most happy with, and made the most difference in handling, ride quality, and stopping power. Another good thought would be to do some brake upgrades, like SS lines, fluid, and pads.

    It is hard to give advice though without knowing your end goals/wants for your car.

    That's a very open-ended question.

    Thanks guys! I want to make my Rex a performance car not only in power but handling as we'll. so maybe it's time I stay working on the handling and braking system now?

    If you plan on using it in any kind of motorsports, then you should carefully consider everything you do in reference to the rule book and classing.

    Or do you just have a street/daily driver car?

    It would be a waste of your time and money at the moment.

    Answer a few questions for us (and you).

    What about the car are you unhappy with?

    Where do you want improvements? Handling, power, looks?

    Then we can better help you with suggestions.

    I'm not happy with the power of my car or the handling. I don't need to much more power I feel like I'm almost where I want to be just can't figure out what there is to do next. Lol and handling is all stock. Is there a simple upgrade I can do for that? Thanks for all your help guys

    Handling...Better tires, swaybars, endlinks. Shifter bushings would give a better shift too and are cheap. Might as well do those.

    Power - Unless you plan on replacing the turbo, your next steps would be to upgrade the fuel system and get a better TMIC. And a professional tune.
