not sure on exact figures man but our boy greenfoam over here does a "greenfoam tune" and it improves fuel efficincy / power on the car if your interested look him up, hes also got a section on ebay. For all your chargers / turbos etc, we've got a wide range of sponsors (on forum page) that specialise in preformance upgrades be sure to check those out. Bolt on modifications such as extractors, exhausts, brakes etc are nothing to worry about if you follow correct instructions, anyone can service their own car etc. Its when you get deep into wiring and fiddling with things you dont know about and putting diesel in your petrol tank that things tend to start to screw up lol. Theres a DIY / HOW TO section on forums for all types of car stuff people have set up including pics and instructions to do stuff yourself if your pretty keen on it.
Goodluck, and those doors look effing awesome nice job.

Greenfoam doesnt do LS1's man, get extractors, exhuast, OTR CAI, mafless tune, diff gears then see how you go, if you want more power, go cam, head work, supercharger. Pretty simply
