What to modify next ?

Hello all,
As some would know I've been trying to sell my XR6 but to no avail. So it looks like I'm keeping it for now.

Current basic specs:
Powerdyne blower, 2 1/2" zorst, extractors, unichip, K&N filter.

What I'd like is some suggestions on what to modify next for some more power.
In the pipe line is a manual conversion & mabye a Intercooler.

Thanks
Steve

I think I read somewhere recently that some Taxis etc have been trialling hi-stall convertors, and been getting some good results, and most peculiarly improved fuel economy?, cant remember where I read this.

Anyway abck to the mods, How bout the Cam, would some changes to that help??

Intake Manifold maybe, not sure of the theory behind standing waves that Ford developed the dual resonance intake manifold is affected by a blower??

What about the brakes? Are they still std or have you upgraded them already?
