Swap Your header (exhaust manifold) for a D23 one, then boost9either turbo or supercharger). If I have read correctly over these past months, the head swap should be a perfect fit, just Plug n Play.

stock? i'm guessing. i would do a intake, header, catback, and a tune and u will proly be happy with that. the auto is the issue. boost will be hard on it. but with a tune u can get it to hold a little better and the modds i listed would make it a decent amount more peppy. look into some suspension work to. if u ask me thats what makes our cars shine their best. suspension mods!

Still, boost that ATX, just be sure to hit up Tom(1Turbofocus) for a tune.
