Well, I dont know much about that car or the engine, but increase the airflow and exhaust (nothing too ricey of course;) ). Another thing that you could do is add performance ignition components and increase the spark and add a performance chip.
All relatively easy and will definately add some performance to you car.

just look here, if you have a fitment question call them, although the time zone thing might be an issue for you.

and no, this is not an advert, just a helpful link.

Intake, exhaust, header, clutch(if manual) or shift kit (if automatic), good tires, all maintenance stuff like plugs, wires, and fuel filter, better suspension(keep those tires on the ground! Wheelhop sucks ass!), better brakes (slotted or crossdrilled rotors, stronger calipers, good brake pads), intake manifold, bored throttle body, port/polished head, increase bore/stroke, adjustable fuel pressure regulator, MEGASQUIRT(replaces factory ECU and allows you to completely control everything your factory ECU would normally manage), stronger con rods/pistons/valve springs, super/turbocharger kit, better fuel pump, higher flow injectors, cam regrind for turbo or supercharger application, and hone in your driving skills. There ya go.

That looks strangely like our (Euro) version of the Escort from the front side view...and inside too. Useless information I know, lol

Which would be better value for money? Short ram Or cold air intake?
Which would be better turbo or supercharger?:smoke:

Is it advisable to buy a new throttle body?
Or should Just forget about this power boosting fantasy and go for a 2.0L V6. 170hp engine swap?

cold air > warm air

turbo > blower
