Mate, good work is not cheap, and cheap work is not good!!! If you want Brad to spend some time on your car then you will be looking at a custom twin turbo kit or something close to. He is just about to finish a twin turbo vr v6 stroked to 4.2 with all the fruit and expected to make over 500rwhp. If you are set on cheap, you are going to have to do the labour yourself. Look at a good cia like a v6 sc setup or a mace engineering cia, and a set of high ratio rockers. they will simulate a larger spec cam and give you more performance. If you want more info Id suggest calling mace engineering or check their website. Otherwise no performance workshop like Enhanced or any orther you can find are going to offer you anything super cheap

hit up greenfoam for a custom tune, best $100 i ever spent.

You could go for some performance leads, and change your spark plugs while your at it.

Strut brace reduces body roll on these cars HEEEEEEEEEAPS.

Also look for some comfy seats out of a senator/clubsport/ss/calais etc. Piece of piss to install, and does wonders over the standard seats

hope that helps

Get yourself a memcal tune, probably around $100, grab yourself a CAI, go to Holden spare parts and tell them you need a CAI for VS Supercharged V6. It's an over the radiator style, and will set you back between $60-80, depending on where you live...So far that's all under 200 bucks and you can do it yourself, and it will look stock..ish- Performance Plugs and leads ,each to thier own i guess, but i'd reccomend them.

thanks guys when i brought the car the bottom half of the box has already been cut out im not sure why that is, and its also had blue leads to, i just changed the spark plugs about 2weeks ago to the platinum one i think they were it runs really good, but i think it could do with a good tune and service i havent done one on it yet but thats next to come when i get time change the oils and oil filter and fuel filter and what not
