thats gonna be a nice boost in power, and yes you got it right, except you need a separate bracket for an auto tranny to mount the throttle body, make a phone call. enjoy.

cool, thanks for taking the time and replying, now I have one more question, considering that I am not going to a race or shorty header any time soon, is the 2.5 inch exhaust going to be much louder than the 2.25 and will I lose power now as oposed to gaining it later with the future upgrades?

the most important question is, which upgrades are most crucial for performance after this, a super chip to correct the shift ratios and fuel mix? a UDP, or what else would u suggest?

I have a K&N FIPK II which is ok I think. and a Shock + Strut upgrade.
Oh right, either a hood scoop or extending the air intake down to the wheel well for better air intake, so u are right.

I am thinking thene suspension upgrades, like swaybars, stress bars and

the shocks and struts are KYB GR2 which come standard on a Lotus Elan.
They are way better than stock, but I heard that ppl who replaced their springs with them were not very happy.

Currently the car corners like its on rails.
