Hey guys.

Haven't long had a '98 AU Fairmont Ghia and I want to start doing a few upgrades. It's already got a 2.5" exhaust but what are some other cheapish things to start with that will give modest performance gains?

Based on that fact my Mum is the best around!

Cheers, I'll see what I can afford and get started.

Any idea how much power my motor should be making? I had it dynoed just after I got it and it was only making 180rwhp, does that sound about right or has it lost a S**T load of power over the years?
