a set of extractors and a 2.5" system have noticible gains cost up to 1k depending on brand and materials

a K+n airfilter $120 or so helps!

then a cam Altered do a stg 2 cam for around $280 i think which makes em go f**k hard!

Straight Through Exhaust 2.5" Redback System
Extractors (majority ppl have Pacemakers)

I wouldn't waste my money on a K&N Filter. Does nothing as far as I'm concerned. You're better of spending your money on a few cartons of piss :)

Everything else Disco said is spot on. Nearly everyone on this forum has had this type of work done and got great power gains from it. A change in diff ratios is also a wicked way to go and probably the one mod (if I had 3.08 gears) I'd be most eager to undergo.

If you want to be unique, an engine transplant is the (very expensive) way to go. Or a low blow turbo set-up....
