how about a chip, k&n cone filter and exhaust for starters*th-up*

or just get nitrous:eek:

Nos and chip are to costly chip is something around $650*thmbsdwn* so maybe cone filter i have a 2 inch exhaust and a sports muffler :) but thats it, any other suggestions ?

i was gonna say shorten your gearing up a little more, but after looking it up you've got 4.10 already... idunno about anything past that for the street, i chickened out and went with 3.91 myself :)

if you've got a good exhaust on, then i'd agree w/ the previous poster- intake, chip, and then headers w/ a good aftermarket cat would be my route... if you don't want trouble from the cops around where i live that's about what you're restricted to, and only then when they have the proper paperwork...

which is why on my last VW i went on a huge weight-reduction binge- removed PS, the entire AC system, and a good chunk of the interior all at once- made quite a difference once i'd gotten a 16v engine in. whether or not you're willing to live w/o these amenities on a daily basis is your call... but if you don't have a lot of money to throw at the car right now, the colin chapman approach always helps :)

Get the chip, it makes a huge difference. I can already smoke stock 318's silly with my current setup.

Even though we didn't really race properly from a stand still, I seem to remember pulling ahead of you nonetheless :P

Sounds like a rematch is in order. :)

like _dk_ said, the best HP gain for $$$ value is serious weight reduction. Don't know how serious you are about spicing up your ride but those stock seats weigh a ton, so does the factory carpet and A/C system (if you have it).

Whatever you do, DO NOT get a K&N cone filter. It's been proven many, many times that the cone filter only sucks hot air in from the engine bay. Dyno results have proven time&time again that the best filter is a K&N drop-in type with the stock airbox.
