    i'd say an induction kit, new manifold, new exhaust system and a remap,


    the trick is to get it breathing better, i'm sure someone will disagree though
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    a turbo kit would do it
    but then again i think they're around the 4K mark and dblias say youd see an increase of around 40%

    otherwise .. air filter, zorst, go faster stripes

    not sure bout induction kits i heard heat soak is a big problem with em

    depends how far you wanna go with it really....

    lol i was tempted for a turbo kit as i thought they'd be around 1500 - 2000 quid

    but at 4k i think ill just buy another car lol
