what mods next????

OK, Ive got $800 coming my way to play with in the next week from an insurance settlement. But I'm just stuck on what to do with it
Dont want a CF hood, dont want headers *would take me out of STS class in AutoX*, dont want body/lip kit

Things I have so far : AEM intake, Neuspeed sport springs, 5Zigen "axle-back exhaust", 16" rota slipstreams wrapped in yokohama AVS ES100's.

possibilities: front upper strutbar, rear upper strutbar, rear sway bar, my own helmet for autoX other than those, I'm lost.
suggestions anyone?

yeah, I know 15's are better than 16's for AutoX, but 15's to me just look too small. That and I'm thinking about getting some slicks and putting them on my steelies.

But right now, Im more concerned about the handling of my car. Ive got a VP civic, so theres no front or rear sway bars. which means Ive got bodyroll like a motherfaulker. I used to have a front upper strutbar, but I had to take it off when I got my intake.
