Cat back exhaust and extractors will make a good difference. After that, probably a regrind cam, XH snorkel, and an air filter (snorkel and filter won't make a huge difference).

If you want a reasonably quick 6 cyl NA car that you don't mind being a bit rough around the edges then you have a pretty good starting point with the EA 5 speed. Get a decent zorst and extractors and then a cam and it will go pretty well.

1st thing i would do is chuck the diff in the bin, and get 3.7 gears witha good lsd, tho old ea's had a 2.77 ratio, next would be extractors then a k&N pod with cold air duct, let her breath then work on cams and headwork

please please please dont do LED washers on the bonnet... you are public enemy no.1 to cops and it gives us something funny to laugh at... :wink: and RED wont LED"S wont make your car faster... :lol:

otherwise.. cam/headers/2.5 inch exhaust/colp air intake/heavy duty clutch..and 3.45 diff gears should make a nice difference... :wink: -as it did on my EA S-PACK... :twisted:
