Don't have much cash? Well try putting a tickford snorkel on it for starters.
A shift kit is another nice cheap mod to start with.

I fitted a tickford snorkle to a mates AU2 forte, i did an before and after Dyno run and picked up 5rwkw to 109rwkw. Good result for $40.
Pacemaker extractors and better exhaust your next step.
Lower it, tints and a set of nice rims (18' TE50 my fav), and your laughing.

Definitelty better exhaust. Go to the lukey site www.lukey.com.au and check out their products. Their mufflers are really good, many people on this forum have them and reckon they sound awesome on the 4 litre. Check out the sound clips to hear what it sounds like.
Cheers
