You could takes off your mud flaps. I like mine without them. I think there is the fog light mod for your year. Blinker mod as well.

You will, but you might only notice it on stations which are of marginal strength.

LED mods aren't free - but they're pretty cheap. I cover a few on my Cardomain site. There's a page index a little down the first page. Link in my sig.

You cut a big hole in the front of the airbox to let more air in. You have a snorkel/funnel there now. Remove it and make that hole bigger. Or drill a bunch of holes on that side.
