I swapped to power steering and power brakes last year and i thought those were life changing.
Let’s hear yours.
I do miss my FFR. Biggest thing I liked was the upgraded full custom done tan interior.

Best upgrade: rear brakes from Fox Mustang to 4-piston Wilwoods. (Started as a budget build.)
Best upgrade for the money: tinted the rear view mirror to keep headlights from blinding me at night. It was over 10 years ago, but I sent my extra window tint to over 100 forum members.
It was modded to have a slight slope, eliminating people getting their heels caught every time they tried to pull their legs back to get out of the car. I did this same slope mod to the drivers side too.
Add this to the dead pedal "pop-out" for my left foot and I can't think of any better mods to my car.
There have been many more but these are the best bang for my money.
I'd have to say the upgrade to MK-IV seats was second . . .
Driving a car like this is about as much fun as you can have with your clothes on.

I’ve built 6 and they all were pretty much the same. Car is a MK3 with a FI347 and 3 link.
I’d like to redo my dash.
Pedal box area is a bit tight.
gasn pipes is something I see in my future.
I’m sure the list will go on and on.
Self cancelling turn signal
fiero parking brake mod
cutting out the MK2 foot box brace
high mounted rear view mirrors
magnetic cup holders
mid shifted trans
rewired the entire car.
FFR 3319. On the road since 2002 with a lot of upgrades
It's a major modification but access to the entire front end is so much better.
Second would be electric power steering.

SL-C, LS3 525, Mendeola SDR-5. Titled 9-19-18
Upgrading the dash layout to a Competition one and replacing Ron Francis switches with Lucas look-alikes was my second favorite.
Before selling, I added a leverage mod for the clutch fork from Mike Forte for the TR-3650. More for the new buyer than for me as I felt the clutch was a bit heavy without it. A good mod for around $100.
Not much else was done to the car in the 4 years I had it on the road.
Best mod on my Mk 1.5 was to remove the angled brace on the left side of the driver foot box to make room for my foot to clear the clutch. I also adding a left foot brace that I got from a Mazda Miata.
