Do the intake mod, easy enough and good starting point.

Do you know if your catalytic converter has been changed / renewed lately? That is a serious restriction if clogged up. A decent exhaust system is the second step in uprating power / response.

You will then have to decide how much money you want to spend and what you want to gain. A decent set of cams will cost a bit more than a unichip or a remap, but gains will be higher if you remap after the cam change.

thanks gertie, i think the cat has never changed i have been asking about cat back systems and have shown some. i do like the idear of uprated cams but have fitted them to cars in past and they have made the idle rough. how do the ts's idle with them fitted.

thanks again for the info.
