Nice to have a bit more horsepower than many 'sports cars'.

I plan on swapping the slushbox. It doesn't seem to shift smoothly out of first these days.

Also, a full Supersprint exhaust, including headers, would help the motor get rid of all the air that the blower is pushing in. My initial research indicates that another 30-50hp may be available with a larger throttle body & free flow exhaust.

My plans also include LSS springs to go with the Bilstein HD's already on the car.

A positive note about ERT - although I am out of warranty, they replaced a mounting bracket, without question, when I discovered a crack.

Overall, I do enjoy the look on the faces of youngun's driving their little rice boxes when I pass them @110+. Then accelerating.
