    Excuse my ignorance, but (at least on my phone) it doesn't give any product info, so what exactly is what you linked me?

    How many miles on the car? When was the last tune-up?

    I agree with this...Nothing makes a car look cool while it's being towed. Poke around under the hood, serp belt, hoses, plugs & wires ? None of these are glamorous, but they help keep you rolling....

    if you find 42 injectors for a 100 or less your struck gold, they are a bit more then that, a pulley and hub will run you another 100 new, then the pulley puller tool you need to rent or buy, hes talking 200 or more easy. but, thats your best bang for the buck.

    "I have around $100 I want to spend on little (or big) upgrades to my car."
    Oil, filter, plugs and some Marvel Mystery Oil.
    Detail, wash/wax inside/outside & engine bay.
    $100.00.
    Anything left over...get gas.
    Sorry but $100 doesn't go very far these days.

    Oil change, coolant change, trans pan drop and shift kit, plugs, O2 sensors, belts, wires, filters... Then suspension, brakes... Then when all is good, MOD!

    Pick your poison for your $100, but it's not going to go far and is an unrealistic approach to a 125k car with unknown history. What does the oil look like, trans fluid? How about plugs? Have you even taken a look?

    Want to go fast and have ****ty or no brakes? Sounds great, good stuff! Go for it...

    you know what, R1 rotors and pads are a 100 shipped, be well worth it, if your due for new brakes. toss another 80 in for the rears and stop like a pro.

    I've seen 42# injectors for $75. You shouldn't have any problem buying a pulley and hub for $35. Or just buy a press-on pulley.
