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)

Some Other Fast Tweeks. Change The Psi The Waste Gate Opens At. That will Give You More Boost. If Your At 7Psi Now, Crank It Up A Pound Or Two At A Time, Intercooler, Colder Air Is Denser Then Worm Air, More Air In = More HP..My Geo Tracker Is Getting A New Bug Turbo, The Intercooler is 8x8 And An A/C Evap Is Mated Infront Of The Intercooloe For A Fixed TEMP. Rather Than Outside Air, Engine Coolant And Oil All Change In Temp, The A/C Will Not If You Look Close At This 1931 Buick It's Sporting A 1976 Z Engine, And More....
