Well...

The usual list is, t5 manual gear box, exhaust and extractors, and possible air take mods, then you can look at a performance cam. But a little more info would help, is ur car a cfi or mpi, if it's center point a multi point conversion helps from what some of the guys have said. These are the simple and most common mods.

Re: diff

I'd love this...

Plant in a 528 ci Hemi/Mopar big block V8 (Has 610 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque!) Which again is the biggest V8 in in the world - I think.

9 inch Ford diff with LSD and a fibre compound tailshaft (used in V8 supercars)

A Tremec 6 speed manual gearbox...

I promise the car will go up to speeds 400 km/ph + !!

LOL @ ben

hahaha.. I reckon most of the front seats leag space would have to be given up as well.

I can just see the kinks in the roof of the EA after the clutch is dropped.

dude, why the need for another "how to hot up my engine thread"

have you even looked at the threads that already exist... tons of people already asked this, tons of answers... one of the best ones for you to check out would be the "cams, which one to get" thread... it has lots of camshaft, cylinder head, general engine info, exhaust, differentials -ratio's, intake etc... its got the lot
