i want more power

i got an ed fairmont but it lacks the power i want
i got extractors and an exhaust 2.25inch so im runnin bout 155-160 kw of power but it doesnt give me the thrill i want
what else can i do to give me extra power nothing pricey 4 bout 2k powerchip any good? airfilter?
what else could i get 4 a bit more power im lookin at a supercharger in a few years time so thats out whilst moneys tight how much will an airfilter and chip cost
give us ur ideas. How much betta is the handling in a falcon with a swaybar should i consider 4 a tighter grip and does a swaybar help the wheelspin when hammered on corners cause it loses out too much
thanx

Bro I suggest if you want to pay around $1000-$1500 you could get your self a unichip and cam, which should give you around the 190kw mark at the flywheel.

You can make yourself up a decent cold air induction set up for like 200 - 300... Just buy a decent pod filter and get some 3" pipe bent and make some sought of heat shield and your good for like 17 rwkw (thats what im told...i dont have the money to do it myself)

Or, you could get a different cam, Crow stage 2 seems to like the falcons, or get a Mock Dev 4 - 5 cam. Theyre pretty good for a bit of extra grunt.


Thanks


Dane.

Yeah paint can be a bastard...
But seriously I did a few mods to mine, multipoint, exhaust, EF cam. It made a bit of difference but.....meh.
Then I put the manual in, bloody blew me away! Cost - bought manual EA, $800.
Sold various parts, the car now owes me $60 and I kept the box.

Mwahahaha!!
