$2000 for track improvements?

What could 2000 USD get me for upgrades on a 2002 2.7 Boxster?

It came with "Sport Package" whatever that means
18" wheels... putting Mich Pilot Sport Cup2s on next week
It has PSM (Phun Stopping Mechanism)
Has new Bilstein 5 instead of factory 4. Maybe should have gotten 6, but I didn't, so is what it is.

Can 2000 land anything significant for noticeable better power or handling?
Thanks!

brakes - race pads, motul 600 fluid, gt3 ducts
tires - r-comp
alignment - max front camber
front swaybar if you still have any $.

Shameless plug, but I happen to have a few goodies that could fit your budget in the classifieds section.

You probably don't need everything, but I do have the sway bar setup that you could potentially benefit from.

Plug aside, The Radium King's recommendations are solid.

I'm surprised no-one mentioned education and experience. Better to increase your skills first, before changing the power or handling.
