Modifications and their purpose.
I'm just thinking about the 4 basic areas of performance that we usually go after and what mods tend to do more gain in what field. Maybe we could even break it all down and make a sticky for newcomers looking to do some upgrades. I'm sure there are many mods that have a tendency to add to more than one area of performance but i'm looking at mods starting from the simple and cheap to the hardcore and all out and where most of them gain performance. For example a 4" intake, does it add more acceleration or top end. Lets see what you guys think.
1) Accleration mods-
2) Top speed mods-
3) Handling mods-
4) Ergonomic mods-

Thats a good idea and i say add a section for like mods that dont add performace but will extend engine life or over all life of the craft such as metal washers, ceramic bearings, or RR front engine mount stuff like that.

I would add "ergonomic" mods to that list.
Being able to control your craft adds to your enjoyment. Lots of time and money are spent making things personal.

The best thing I ever did was change the stock hot air intake and replaced it with my fresh air intake. I then gutted the exhaust and installed the straight exhaust. By doing those two things alone I felt a hole shot increase and top speed gain of 1.5 mph!!
