    Make it lighter,

    Get rid of sub, spare replace that with foam and compressor,

    Erm you have kiddys so you cant get rid of the rear seats.

    But you get the drift

    I weighed my sri wheel 16" (yes im that sad) a few months ago with fairly new tire the result.

    3,stone 3,lb (Yes thats old money)

    So could be worth getting light wheels bud

    The most likly reason it feels slow at the bottom end is prob because of your 4 branch manifold. By trying to gain high end bhp you've prob lost alot of low end touque.
    Now Running Boost, AWD and a Flat 4.
