Cold air intake and full exhaust. Then there's always weight reduction.


You really can't get both hp and fm. The options I've listed, are ways to get both, but it's going to be so miniscule you'll probably not notice.

Two other great things are a free flowig air filter (k&n or similar) and switch to synthetic fluids. This is usually good for a few MPGs.
