better head gasket, low compression pistons, up the boost, stiffer clutch springs, piston rings just to start. Im not super knowledgeable on the subject, but I know those things are definently in the equa.tion

Beyond a certain point, every extra horsepower gets exponentially more expensive.


Helibars, MRA screen, Ohlins damper, reversed shift pattern, sorted suspension, braided lines, Michelin Pilot Power, all else stock 'coz it's fast enough!

not just for 30 more. youll be able to really crank up the boost. You build the motor up to handle that kind of boost. if you really build the motor up, you can boost it over 350hp. Then youre talking about another 125whp. At that kind of boost too though, you start running into high Intake Air Temps where youll need aftercooling to cool the compressed air.

well, its gonna cost you a few hundred bucks easily, and probably around a grand to get it all installed by someone who hopefully will do a proper job.

It will take some research to find out what the stock parts are capable of handling. You can only go so far before it becomes a time bomb.

Install water/meth injection kit and you'll make extra power for under $300 and will be able to put a smaller pulley on the blower and make more power.

this too can work. could net you probably another 10whp though. would be worth it. safer option too because youll keep temps down.
