    Hello, well im going down the easiest route first on mine, electroinc ignition followed by stage one kit, with one of the big k&n air filters that fits the plastic air filter housing. from there im not sure. but for the money stage one seems best value for a bit of extra poke

    hi mate welcome along Very Happy

    before you start worrying about making the car faster you want to worry about getting it running, if you need a hand with anything give us a shout.

    personnally i think best value for money is a supercharger Laughing but i'm biased

    but yer go stage one route first its the cheapest way of getting that bit extra power

    only do this after you have got the car running and give it a good tune up
