Budget Performance

I am looking for low cost performance upgrades, if there is such a thing. I have a 98' 4.0. I have the below listed items under the hood (filter, plugs, wires) but I am looking for other things. Haven't heard to many good things about the chips so I plan to stay away from them so any other bright ideas would help me out bunches.

Can't ever go wrong with a cold air intake (tube style or K&N FIPK) and a free flowing exhaust. You've also got the bored TBs and electric fan to replace the mech one.

Get rid of the splitfire and buy a good quality plug. Look for ways to keep the motor cooler. Any decrease in resistance you can do in the intake/exhaust system is a plus. Also, I can't suggest this enough change your fuel filter that thing kills power if it isn't changed regularly.

Just found my fuel filter it's on the frame, by the driver's side rear wheel and you gotta get on your back and scoot under to see it, towards the front of the wheel not the rear. Bout the size of a beer can. I bought one yesterday, $13 Canadian, but I don't have it in yet.
