A higher ring and pinion 3.73 or so would easy be in your price range and wouldn't require a bottle refill. Nitrous is your best bang for the buck.

Ok, cheap mods. Standard 5.0 cheap mods that help: Gears as I mentioned will be a good mod. Doesn't add horsepower but puts your car in the power band quicker. Provides a "seat of the pants" improvement. A good tune up with Autolite #24s, an MSD cap with brass contacts, good 8mm wires. Advance the timing to 14-15 degrees and run premium fuel. Reduce timing if the car pings or rattles. Remove the air box silencer and add a K&N filter or go full CAI. An entire junkyard set of GT-P heads and explorer intake will add an honest 30 horsepower if you go that route. The problem is it would negate your headers. Tommy Vaughn Motorsports in Texas still ports stock mass air meters to match the rest of your intake track. Underdrive pulleys would add a little more. Delete your smog and bypass your A/C if you can live without both. Take weight out (numerous threads on the subject).

Of yeah, 180 degree thermostat, synthetics throughout, a short throw if your car is a 5 speed (saves t-5s).

You need gears, that is a must, that's about 1/2 your budget.

I bought my '93 completely stock (except glasspacks) and one fo the first things I did was subframe connectors and 3:55 gears (upgraded from stock 2.73). Holy Moly what a difference. The connectors with welding installation and gears combined was about $700. I strongly suggest this would be your first mods for the fox body's!

Now I can focus more on engine mods and a short throw shifter! :thumb

for 1500 i would do aluminum heads and 1.7 rockers. then you can add the bolt ons later a little at time. all the bolt ons can be picked up used for a dime dozen, people are always selling pullies. intakes, throttle bodies etc. ive even had people give me some of those items.
