Upgrade advice?

If somebody had a stock EVO X (drop in K&N) and just won $1000 at a casino should that individual save the money (boring) or upgrade his EVO?

Already know the answer to the 1st question, now what upgrades should be done with the winnings and in what order?

In this car, it's best to have it done first.

In time after you accumulate a lot of new mods, I can do a retune for you for a fraction of the cost.

If you only had 1K I would agree with dino. Get a tune. Cars are running in the mid to low 12s with a tune alone. Thats faster than Shelby 500, new M3, C63 AMG, New Challenger SRT8, and a regualr Vette in the quarter. Thats a pretty nice list of cars you could whoop up on.

A tune would almost certainly go unnoticed compared to any other starter mod.
