SO... I have been working on upgrading the engine using a lot of the bolt on budget mods and have experiences a nice increase in power. Problem is there still isn't all that much low end torque to get the car moving.

I want to try something that will do this without nos, turbo, or SC yet.

I have begun to investigate the possibility of headwork, probably going to a ported and polished head and then increasing the valve sizes by 1mm diameter.

What other possibilities can you think of?

So far I have:
Intake
HF Cat
UDP
Coil/wires
Copper plugs
Predator Tune
Ported Throttle Body

Near future:
Jethot coated header and cat exterior
Headwork

VF Engineering Mounts. Get all three, that will help your engine from knocking around when you shift. It will help stablize your engine.

Anything LARGER will hurt TQ , Like porting here , custom intake , If you want TQ and mid range but dont care about high mid range and upper end then go smaller , smaller TB , screen under TB things like this will make low end TQ but hurt the top end

You had a predator tune didnt you , thought you sold it ?

I still have the Predator Tune. Also have a XCAL2 kicking around, not tuned yet.

Basically I think the car has enough HP for the moment, but could definitely use some work in the Torque department.

Yeh for the drags I think I will look into a set of 15's and then smaller diameter tires.

I decided on an action plan for the next year or so....

Fall 2006 - Headwork
Spring 2007 - Bottom end work (pistons/crank/conrods)
Summer 2007 - Quaife LSD, Flywheel, Clutch
Fall 2007 - Start collecting FI accessories
Spring 2008 - FI (custom supercharger setup I think)

New info suggests and I believe has been proven that Team Dynamic Pro Race 1's will fit w/o spacers. Also OZ Ultraleggera?

I am sure of the PR1's the OZ's are new knowledge to me.

15's won't fit over the brakes if I remember, I think 16 is the lowest you can go.
Apparently,there are..
I have 6- 15" winter tires and the guy at the garage confirm this.
