    Yay another true red ftw!

    with regards to mods, there is plenty on here, most may come from the US but there is local guys like 2XS who make bits and pieces for these cars.

    IMO short ram intake (aka SRI) or cold air intake (CAI), Dump pipe, front mount intercooler (FMIC) and a tune would be the first steps power wise, mechanical improvements would be to upgrade the feel of the shifter i.e. short shifter plate, gear knob, shifter base bushes, new gearbox oil and an engine mount. And then perhaps work on the handling, i.e. better tyres, suspension mods and perhaps wider wheels

    Oh yeah welcome to the forum btw!

    Welcome mate.

    Must do mods: Rear engine mount, solid shifter bushings and new gearbox oil.
