Get an underdrive pulley (UDP).
Then I would go for an intake upgrade or rear 19mm-22mm Sway bar.

I was going to get back nearly $1500 but due to my new job vs what was with held at my old one I made too much and it put me in a different tax bracket (god damnit) and now I'm getting back more like $800 instead :(

With 200 I'd recommend redoing your intake (you can do a resonator mod and get nearly as much as a regular intake, hell, just do an iceman from the TB to your stock air filter cover), and then an underdrive pulley (esslinger is the best from what I've heard so far, they also make VERY good quality parts for 2.3 SOHC and 2.0 DOHC engines, so I'd trust them), so that would put you at about $120-150 there, and with the other $50 or so I'd say find a used short throw on here or on teamzx2 in the classifieds, you can nab them for $40, I got mine (BRAND NEW CONDITION) B&M shifter for $40, and it's another $10 for the ES bushings.  Then you've got better intake, less stress/load on the engine which also due to the lightweight pulley vs it underdriving it all you'll have more hp and to top it off with a short throw you'll have more crisp and shorter shifts.

You'll be like "WTF, where did my Z go, this feels so much better."

I have yet to find out what I am getting back. Still waiting on my W2s from the club that I worked at. I would have them if the idiots would have changed my address when I gave it to them :x . I went in there to pick them up and they were like "They should be in your mail box"  I was like "I don't live there anymore" Now I have to wait for the mail to send them back my W2s and for them to send them to my correct address. Grrrrr! If I don't get them by the end of the month I am going in there and raising hell.
Anywho I hope to get enough back to cover Darron's wedding band which I need to get still. That is if I don't get screwed over because The Emporium wasn't taking out Federal Tax. I pointed that out to them and they didn't do anything, so hell will again be raised if I end up oweing money. Oy....I hate stupid people....

I'm thinking about $800... unfortunately, all of that will go to the broke ass Bimmer, and only pay off 1/3 of it.

I was considering paying off the last bit of the zx2 with my returns but it's almost paid off so i'll just save it for something better and let my credit build :)  If i can sell my cheesy as mustang i have now I'll be getting a 65-69 this summer :)  That 302 is just chilling on my engine stand begging for a rebuild and some power parts and a car to enjoy it's meaty 5.0 litres of beauty :)
