    Save your money, Best mods are a good mid pipe and cat back exhaust. I know you have the mod itch but trust me. Doing it right the first time will make you much happier. Also cams are a great addition to any 2v. I have heard people porting there stock heads dropping in some cams and a ported plenum and have gained 50-60 horsepower. Anderson Motorsports did the same thing and gain 56 horsepower. Read that one in MM&FF but I have seen the guy out here in CA with ported NPI heads good cams and ported plenum and gained 50 horses.

    After I did it all it did was give it a whistle under acceleration. Didn't affect the sound of the car at all.

    doing it right the first time is the reason my car is still bone stock. i want to "get what i pay for". i don't want to, say, buy a cheap intake, cause then i wont want to get one later.

    i did mine... the only thing i half way felt was maybe it pull a little easier in 3rd... but i also went through it and channeled it and all that other happy crap... took me about 10 total work hours. used a carbide bit and an air dremel

    Understand bolts on are ok mods. When you read them and they say Adds up to 10-12 rwhp. Don't believe it. The best bolt on I ever bought that was true to what they advertised was a Mid pipe, cat back, and pulleys. Everything else was minimal. My Thottle body and plenum gave me 7 horsepower when it claimed to give 15-18. Pulleys are cheap bro and are easy to install. You will feel and hear the difference along with the exhuast. With pulleys, mid pipe and cat back I gained 25 ponys and it sounded super mean.
