Radiator? At least you get a lot of metal/weight per dollar. Or three style bars.

Like that really stops anyone? Don't start drinking, either. I drank twice as much before 21 than I do after 21 and I like it that way. Got my drunk/puking stage out of my system early.

Not sure what you use the car for. Here are some suggestions in your price range.

Performance Brake pads: Hawk HP+, Carbotech, etc.
Stainless Steel Brake lines
MS/MMR/Delring diff mounts
MS/MMR/Delring motor mounts
radiator cowl
Beatrush rear ladder brace
CD player
Sway bars
Gauges
High flow fuel pump
oil catch can
sport alignment
synthetic fluids for brakes, tranny, engine and diff.
OR......
Save the $130 and put it toward:
a frikkin' Torsen
roll bar
wider wheels

god damn if that ain't the truth!!!!

to OP
if i was you, think of a way to put money on the side and not spend it, i know it sounds easy but believe me its not...
at this point you need the more expensive upgrades, such as a roll bar, 1.8 rear or a coolant re-route
if you dont have a roll bar, i would make that my first purchase
