Carly goes to brother....what does he spend £1000 on....

My brother is taking the carly off my hands. He is going to spend around £1000 on it. What does he do?
It is to be a weekend blast (so no need for comfort/economy)
My input:

-cat bypass (30)
-uprated actuator(60)
-lowering springs(80)
-koni shocks (360)
-ATE power discs (which ones?) (85)
-pagid fast road (which ones?) (80)
-front arb bush (15)
-wishbone bushes (35)
-engine/gearbox poly (65)

Around 800 ish so far.....prices from rough memory, so give or take 50.
What do others suggest?
Anybody succesfully chipped a DI/APC car yet....?

I'd do rear ARB poly and leve the front.
Front ARM rear bush poly (50?)
Get a JT full 3" system for about 300notes without a cat. Must be 12-15hp and loads more
response in that alone.
Performance filter + airbox mod = 45-50 a couple of bhp and better response.

Yes absolutely.. I ran the Abbott DI/APC chip in my 92 9000 Griffin 2.3T.

However bear in mind that the 9000 2.3T griffin is 200hp as standard, so any mods were noticable... this perhaps wouldn't be the case with a carly.. which of course runs a higher state of tune as standard.

Why not see if you can get hold of a "red" ECU box = 225 HP, according to Abbot that the Ultimate SAAB Engine! I tried one once, its VERY quick!
