First question... What state are you in? MSA or the Zstore.com has a great downpipe option. Instead of going from one 90degree angle to another the slope is much smoother, and its only $100 bolts on to the turbo and has a O2 sensor bung already drilled. It just needs some minor welding and your done. The other option in to go with bigger injectors and bigger cam. What kind of milage has your engine seen? You might want to change those valves and lifters as well if your going to swap out the cam. If you want to go more in depth or find out more detailed info about your car and how to mod it, i suggest you check out a forum called hybridz.org I have a 78 and there has been weeks where ive spent hrs upon hrs trying to learn as much as i can. Well good luck hope the info helps, and Happy Tunning. David (attached is a pic of my car Kali)
