Hey guys, new to the site but had a bit of a look around but couldn't see a better place for this topic. If there is please direct me to it or if there is previous thread on it.

Basically, I am wanting to increase the performance of my engine. Not really wanting to spend major money at the moment but would like to know what options are out there and get some of the slightly cheaper ones out of the way.

Increased air intake - filters etc.
Exhaust - Extractors, size.

Really just what other members have done to get the best out of the car and engine. Also I am in Brisbane so tips of who is good to go to for the work would also be nice. Don't want recomendations to your mates unless they really do quality work.

Cheers

Convert the car to manual and put an 3.45 LSD in. Best money you can spend on getting the car faster. You won't believe how much better it will go.
