Lukey air filter (LAF003) $40
1:9:1 roller rockers $450
25mm manifold spacer $220
Memcal tune $70-200?

Thats some cheaper options, clean MAF and TB with some carby cleaner, new plugs and leads, change oil and oil filter, you already have a decent exhaust so I wouldn't bother upgrading that for a long time.

How much are you willing to spend?

Depending on how much cash you have I can make a list as long as my arm.

A good flowing exhaust system would be a good starting point.

um probably a grand or so but a list is good because my mechanic has alot of contacts soo parts and install is very cheap like my exhaust system only cost me about 300 bucks installed
so yeah 1000 is a good start
even if i can push my KWs up to at least 200 or so

ok so 200 is a bit much the sv6 have about 180 kws and the VE 195 so ur saying that a sv6 VE has more power than ur maloo
stock the car has 167kws so i want to bump it up by atleast 20-25kws
thats plausible
