Default So, what would you get for $150?

My parents are giving me $150 to spend for Christmas, so I think I'm going to spend it on the Miata. What would you get with $150? I can't really think of anything. I wanted a lip, but I can't really find the GV lip I want, and it looks to be over $150 anyways. And don't say save up for a turbo, because I've already got that

Part of a bigger turbo, Better Engine Management, DIY Coolant Re-Route could be in your budget.

A knife. Then you can make your blow lines and cut up your hookers.

I'd love to get a MegaSquirt with some new injectors and then dyno tune it and turn up the boost, but I think that's a little out of my price range right now

I would like to do the coolant re-route though. Any links to where I can check that out?

I need to recirculate my current BOV, what makes you think that I should get a new one?

Thanks for the link, that is a big possibility right now looks like the group buy isn't going to fill up though.

The hooker and blow comments are pretty comical. I laughed

Also, I'll probably use some of this money to get a oil change and check out other things that might need maintenance. I know I need a new battery and I've also heard that I should replace the radiator. I'd like to get a MegaSquirt and turn up the boost, but that's out of my price range now. There is a group buy on FlyinMiata right now for a Touge Run lip, I might look into that because I need to get a lip on this car. Keep the suggestions coming, you guys have given some great ideas so far.
