Turbo?


but seriously you could add 1 step colder plugs, also do the efan conversion that should free up a little more power.

Did you replace the y-pipe? if not you can do that aswell.

Sell the spacer for scrap metal, and buy a ported throttle body.

You could also add a set of headers or 180* T Stat.

Some good ideas so far. Ditching the TB spacer should be your first move, a ported or larger true-bore throttle body, headers, T-stat, custom tune, e-fan, and y-pipe (if not already part of the exhaust upgrade). Those are the basic bolt-ons. If you want to go any further you're going to be looking at a cam w/ phase limiter, or a power adder like nitrous or boost.

I would forget the colder plugs, they are NOT a performance mod. They are used with power adders to slow the cylinder's burn wave and prevent detonation, so unless you have a power adder you'd be hurting your performance and fuel mileage for no gains.

Default How about TLC

TotalLoadControl has been reported to lower 0-60 by 1 second and definitely will improve steering and handling at speed around curves.

You might not have thought a suspension would improve speed but check it out.
