Intake, Exhaust, Upper/Lower Pulley, High Flow Elbow, Port, Blower Swap...the list is endless

I think to start out with you will realize that tractions is the biggest deal...upper/lower control arms with some better wider tires is very necessary.

An AFCO heat exchanger is also very necessary as heat soak is another problem.

The 2.6 seems like the popular choice. It adds about four pounds of boost. As far as tuning I would recommend taking it to trusted tuner and putting it on a dyno. Dont do the mail order thing cause you dont want this car running one way or the other. Dial it in perfect and enjoy it. My buddy went with the 2.6 and intake option and hes making 556hp at the wheels along with 561 torque.

Again emphasis on the AFCO heat exchanger if you are doing this cause the heat soak is ridiculous on my buddys car.

Also traction will be nonexistent without upper/lower control arms and a good set of tires.
