well they pretty much topped it out from the factory from what Ive read on here. there arent cams that you can get, and the intake and exhaust flow pretty well. The only thing you can do to really get power out of them is boost.

but if your gong to be drag racing it i would suggest doing the shifter counter wieght removal. How-To can be found on here.

Off road pipe was my biggest power adder, tune helped as well, and the rear dogbone will help put all that power down!

I highly recommend reading this thread:

There's also several other threads on the same subject.
I'd suggest saving yourself some time, and browse through some of the existing performance threads.
Once you get an idea of what you want, we'll be glad to answer any more questions you may have.

Panel Filter of choice... I prefer ITG
Ported Stock Throttle Body
Highflow Cat... for the somewhat environmentally conscience.
2.5" Catback Exhaust
Gap fresh spark plugs - start at 0.065 and work your way down till you get no mis-fires.

and for good measure (aka no power gains)
Rear Engine Mount
Short Throw Shifter
Big Three - For better electrical grounds. works well with all upgrades.
Weight Reduction - Lightweight battery, Carbon Fiber Hood, Carbon Fiber Hatch, Wheels, Flywheel, Front Race Seats, Rear Seat Delete, Receiver only with only the front door speakers
Me too
