camshafts, pulleys, lightweight flywheel+clutch+short shifter combo, differential, clutch stop (easy DIY mod), just to name a few...

then there is always driving school. I think I'm going to enroll in the September classes for BMW's performance driving school. It's around $450 I think.

im not sure that you would be better off using a lightweight flywheel.

my reason is this... Your car has Hp at a reasonably low RPM, and Tq peak at low RPM... that means you dont need to rev the car up to get power... A lightened flywheel is not good for your application, since you dont need to get those revs up to lets say 7-9K.

also your going to diminish flywheel inertia that keeps it spinning, by lightening it you are making less inertia but higher revolutions perminute, and the wieght loss of the flywheel isnt going to allow you to rev fast enough to gain at your powerband.

Lightend flywheel makes your car feel much different but isn`t nessessarily going to give you real hp, if your going to lighten things go for pistons, rods, valves, trannsimissons etc... not flywheels.

(unless you have a honda that needs to rev high):p

dont waste $$$ on internals..just get the damn blower and knock urself out

lol yeah true, nothing like running boost, unles you only have a couple hundred to spend then grab a cam.

no internal but boost... if you put too much boost you'll need Forged and reinforced internal and a lower compression...

There is a supercharger for your car. G-Power makes it for all six cilinders

ASA also makes it for your car
Here's a post discussing why it is better than the others:

What the hell are you taking about buddy. Do you really know what a flywheel does. By lighting the flywheel you are reduced weight meaning. A stock M flywheel weighs about 32lbs. By getting a lighter one say around 12 lbs you are reducing the rotation force needed to spin it causing better acceleration. It dosenít give you hp. It allows you to accelerate quicker but the downside is when shifting the the rpm drop very quickly so I think you would benefit from a short shifter as well. Just my .02

hmm... i've been wondering about that. Since the flywheel is now a lot lighter, it should decrease the to the wheel HP loss.

However, i read an article on european car ( the project M3 ) when they changed to a lighter flywheel, they lost hp / torque down low and gained a lot more hp back near redline. So does that mean I basically shifted my hp / torque to high end ?

lightening a flywheel first of all does not add HP , it only frees up HP by lessening the amount of force needed to turn it.
