I am curious to see what people come up with, I've got the same setup and its gutless. I don't really care, my car is for speed, but if someone has a good and cheap mod, I'll jump on it. I don't think a CBE would help much though, just adds sound.

Do you think a cold air intake or ram air intake would help any

catback exhaust is the "best bolt on mod" but still wont do much
if you have 31" tires you might wont some steeper gears
a performance cam and port and polishing the head is the best way to go w/o using a power adder
