    air filter and full exhaust system is a good place to start, and also good 'bang for your buck' and to be honest, its a must if your planning big engine mods, cos ull need to shift them gasses. but , if you got £££ to spend then look at things such as rebore, port polish, compression ratios, remap, camshafts and even consider getting a turbo as this would prob be the biggest gain !!

    To be honest mate I've already got a straight through exhaust both back boxes fell off so taken the lot out and welded the old tips back on, could you shed any light onto where I could get updated cams from ? Also do you know if any of the 6 speed gearboxes will fit into it

    http://www.eclipse-performance.com/ try speaking to these and they got more of a know how. if im honest, i dont think a change to a 6 speed would be worth while. i would imagine it cost thousands. for that price you could just get some serious mods done to it as it is, including a turbo. maybe go for turbo conversion, intercooler, uprated cams, compression ratio, gear ratio, remap. im sure this sort of road would give you more than enough power. dont forget that many components will need uprating to cope with added stress. and in my opinion, if your looking for power, why not just buy a vxr and a few simple mods to that would be extemely fast !!! let me know anyway how it goes id really like to know what you get up to
