yep definetly extractors, underdrive pulleys, and a better intake manifold.

Everything after that gets a bit more exspensive. But if you go a touch further after you fo those thongs, you need to change your heads from the crappy E7's, and upgrade tp Gt40's. Yopu should be quiet impresses with the power from a big barge a*** lane then. :P

ive heard people say ^^^ but if you did all that would you have to retune the computer or it will still work fine with the standard ecu??

If you did all the above and got yourself a tweecer tuned right, you should see in excess of 160rwkw.

Then save up for the heads and cam. I got tweecer prior to intake or heads and still managed 157rwkw out of the stock combo. It certainly livens the big girl up

with that set up the standard ECU will work fine, even heads on top of that the ECU will work fine. From then on you may want to look into a aftermarket ECU.

might be a stupid question but is there a kit you can by for underdrive pulleys, and what benefit does it give?
