a lot of newbies come here asking about more horsepower and suspension upgrades and cooling and stuff to go faster.
the main reason to go faster is to keep up with or go faster than someone else. with healthy brakes and good tires that are well taken care of you need nothing to have a good time at the track. thats really my advice to you.
from experience i can tell you the more mods you do and the more adjustable you make your car the easier it is to completely mess up your fun.
i went to scca school with a friend in the marine corp. he in his cobra with a basically stock 4.6L early cobra motor was much faster than me in my 95 cobra r race car. by our second race together he had taken his car in for a tune to increase his HP and the car never ran right after that. he was always fighting it. meanwhile my cobra r ran like a sewing machine.
dont outsmart yourself.
