A decent set of tyres. Probs one of the single best mods to improve handling.

Cant believe no one has mentioned this yet?

Good point. I think many of us just end up thinking this is a no brainer and doesn't need to be said.

I/C Spray
Exhaust wrapping etc, heatshields, blankets etc.
Rear Diff - 2 way LSD. This is epic.
Perrin Engine Pitch Stopper - this was noticeable for me.

What kind of changes did you feel from a pitch stop? I only went group N for fear of triggering the knock sensor.

Just removed a lot of slop out of the engine bay, which you do feel through the chassis when you come off/on the accelerator. I had the original OEM one which is 15 years old still in.

Feels tighter all round.

I was told by several shops not to do the pitch stopper on my betty as it just induces noise and vibration. The group n engine and transmission mounts tied everything down nicely for me, I wouldn't go any further in a street car.

Can't say I noticed anything tbh, but then again NVH in mine is already fairly full on so it would just blend in.

Coilovers from Evo R worked wonders in my old Bugeye, also making it stop on a dime with good pads, rotors and brake fluid. I also would look into weight reduction for all round performance improvements.
